A MYSTERIOUS THREESOME under lockdown


Hello fellow lockdown-ers. Not a real word, but I'm entitled to make up any word I want while locked in my house.

I doubt anyone will find this post for a long time because, for all intents and purposes, this site has been dead. Nothing going on. I've thought about it, but I just couldn't commit. I haven't even been going to flea markets, estate sales, or antique stores for several years. I knew I shouldn't spend the money so why tempt myself.

However, recently on the way home from Costco I did make a brief stop at a small warehouse/estate sale. I scoured the premises in search of photos and found a few winners which I scored for less than two bucks. When I walked up with a bunch of photobooth shots that were rubber banded together the seller said, "Oh, I don't want to count those. How about a dollar for the lot?" Fine will me. Fifteen shots for a buck. Now that's a bargain.

Now a normal person would look at this photo and see a happy couple having their picture taken by a friend. I, of course, am not normal. I see problems. The smiling wife. The worried husband. The other woman coming between them as a dark shadow. Who thinks there was something going on?

  1. Oh, they might smile now, thought Gladys, but the next click they heard wouldn't be a camera shutter.She just needed to focus and get the shot right.

    I'm so glad I stumbled by tonight. The world needs vernacular film noir now more than ever. And nice to see you still have the eye for a great photo and the knack to get a bargain too. I've missed you. Will we have to wait until next year for part 2 of the Mysterious Threesome? How about a monthly series at least!
