Wasn’t sure what I wanted to post tonight and I had been saving this photo for a while so here it is. Nothing special photography-wise but the book itself was a fun thing to see.
When I went to visit my friend Nicole to take her son’s 8 month portraits she said she had something she wanted to show me and handed me this book titled The Teddy Bear Tree by Barbara Dillon.
From the buried glass eye of an ancient teddy bought at a rummage sale grows a strange tree that bears surprising fruit.
I opened it to find a library card inside from our grammar school. I scanned down 3 lines to see my own name (having checked out the book on 2/20/86).
Above my name was Jo Ann’s (which you all know by now from the Columns series and other shoots (as well as being my lovely photo assistant on jobs) and below mine was Nicole’s (and she was quite the repeat customer on this book! LOL!)
It was neat to see my little handwriting there and very nostalgic. It brought back memories for me of our little library and made me smile. Being a photographer I pulled out the point & shoot I always carry in my bag and snapped a few photos.
Just thought I’d share. 🙂
