Archive Diving in 2010



                       The camera can photograph thought. ~Dirk Bogarde

I went archive diving in the year 2010 and these are some of my favorite photos and a few favorite quotes

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.
Diane Arbus

A photograph is memory in the raw. ~Carrie Latet



We try to grab pieces of our lives as they speed past us. Photographs freeze those pieces and help us remember how we were. We don't know these lost people but if you look around, you'll find someone just like them. Gene McSweeney


A good snapshot stops a moment from running away. ~Eudora Welty

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you SEE the world rather than just look at it. ~Author Unknown

Sandra your archive diving is like a treasure chest full of gold. You must have a very good photo filing system. I love these and the quotes.

speaking of I saw this on the side of a septic truck the other day
"we are #1 in the #2 business". I was driving and LOL'd thought I'd have to pull over.

Confirmation today that Jake is a cat or at least 1/4. Madi is the same with with pills and NOTHING can hide the tiniest pill. Even in cheese, ham and Brummel Brown Margarine (which she loves and was caught with her head in the tub once, 1/2 full and we tossed it).
Carpet going down in two rooms today and vinyl (LBT) looks like hardwood in Bryan's train room.
