    You look like one of those Life Magazine photographers from the 1930’s – terrifically interesting and unaffected.

    When my mother was a girl in Oregon, she’d just put a pie to cool in the window – her mother had taken it from the oven. “My that smells heavenly!” came a call from across the yard. There was a car in process of repair in the alley. My grandmother invited the man up to the screen porch and offered him some pie and a cool drink. My mother recalled he had a big floppy fedora.

    He went out to the car and came back with a big complicated camera and ask my grandmother if he could photograph her stove. “Just a stove, but if it makes you happy, go ahead on” she said. My mother was fascinated by his photographic machinations and had a long conversation with him. She was due to go off to college at the end of the summer and the man and my mother corresponded for years occasionally. His name was Edward Steichen.

    This is nicely done. Not to mention, it’s nice to see gender-variant folks who aren’t all young pups.


    Jay replied:

    I agree – and as a ‘young pup’ I find it quite encouraging and inspirational.

    And I’m just glad to find a potential co-conspirator my own age.
