“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” – Pioneer woman photographer Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976), who worked prolifically until her death.
From a blurry snapshot of a long-ago event to a random portrait of a stranger found in an antique shop, we’d like you to demonstrate that a picture really is worth a thousand words. Please blog this week about your favorite old photograph, and tag your post favorite old photo blog. (Post the photo along with your blog post, please!)
A few bloggers will receive books by Red Room authors:
- In Cheryl Norman's romantic thriller Rebuild My World, a woman—once a confident and successful photographer—returns to her family home, suffering from the agoraphobia that has plagued her since she was brutally attacked in her apartment. A stalked former celebrity, a handsome chief deputy, and old family feud complicate matters, making for an exciting read.
- Douglas R. Keister makes a special contribution for this creative challenge. His first-ever book, 1985's Driftwood Whimsy: The Sculptures of the Emeryville Flats, launched his career in publishing after San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen gave the book a glowing review. They present a view of a quirky Bay Area landmark fondly remembered.
