It's true I'm afraid and I don't know how to pull back from the abyss !
I am now obsessed with old photographs and early photographers like William Hayes that I mentioned in my last post. I have the book now by the way and what an interesting read it is. Loads of great pictures as well.
I am even looking at my own collection in a different way. I am starting to make up stories in head about why a certain photograph was taken.
Take my profile picture for example. Here is the full version below-
I have it in my head that these two children are orphans who's parents were killed in tragic accident and the authorities have made them have their photograph taken to advertise them to prospective adopting couples.
The little girl is so frightened that she is going to be separated from her brother but he has no intention of letting that happen. And so on.........
I am even getting choked up thinking about it....is there any hope for me ?
That's the trouble when you find a card like this with no information about who these children are. You're imagination goes into overdrive. Well, mine does anyway.
