I originally posted this snowman saga in 2009, but it fits in nicely with the Sepia Saturday theme this week.
I can't even begin to tell you how lucky I was to find this sequence. The three vintage snapshots were in two different boxes at my favorite antique store. I would have been happy to find just one. To actually have the perseverance to find all three took some lower back pain as I stood there sorting for a couple hours. I'm nothing if not dedicated. I featured these images in my first book, Tattered and Lost: Vernacular Photography.
And here is part two of the Christmas mystery photo that I almost forgot to post.
An American Dream is the latest book in my series of vernacular photography books. The American dream of owning a home through vintage vernacular photographs. The focus is on the people who lived within the homes as well as the varied architecture from the late 1800s to the 1960s.
