The Family Portait

I found this by a computer in a college library. This seems like the inaccurate stereotype that people have about Arkansas.

July 19, 1985!!!!!

I bought my house in 2001 and hadn’t looked into the attic since then. But this year, to check the insulation, I grabbed a ladder and took a peek. My attic is one of those that is accessible only through a hatch in the ceiling, and you really can’t use it to hang out in … Continued

Electric Portrait

Tire tracks all across your back, I can see you’ve had your fun! Found this amazingly deteriorated studio portrait on a street near my apartment. No info on the back.

Nameless

Found this old photo framed underneath the floor boards in my boyfriend’s old house … loved it then and still do. On the back is the stamp of the Army Barrack studio which it was taken.
