1953-1971 — From The Beginning

12Oct09

Dad left a huge number of pictures on his hard disk, with thumbnails and descriptions. I’ve written code that creates a page of thumbs linking to the pictures. Here’s the first batch, which he titled “From The Beginning.”

  1. I’m loving the one (http://leonwiner.scripting.com/fromTheBeginning/photos/089.JPG) from the Painted Forest and Petrified Desert – happy to be on earth, he is!

  2. Still, no tooshies!

  3. I like your dad’s double mirror self-portrait ( http://leonwiner.scripting.com/fromTheBeginning/photos/060.JPG ).

    A really nice set of photos – a window into someone else’s life, somehow better than flickr type photos and more interesting because they aren’t “digital”.

    It’s always fun to see the changing bodies, clothes and glasses etc whilst most other stuff stays the same..

    What did your dad do for a living?

  5. The recent National Parks series talked about our common experience with the Parks. Fun to see how your dad captured them (and you).

  6. Dave, you were so adorably “you” as a little kid! How honored I feel to share these with you. And I love that long hair you had as an adolescent. Grieve, because there are some really good aspects of it. One is the memories.

    • Hi Francine. That’s what everyone says, that even as a baby I was me. It got me to look closer and I see they’re right. That’s a major breakthrough in perspective, because I never felt I was there in those pictures. Like everyone else, I don’t remember it. But there’s the evidence! :-)

  7. 8 LA

    Dave – I did not know your Dad, nor do I know you really – but wanted to thank you for sharing these really fantastic photos – he had quite an eye. All the best to you. -LA
