    My parent's parents used Kodachrome way back in the early 1960s to photograph me crawling around in what appears to be a frock (!) with a headband on (!!). Yuck! They're in focus, but motion blurred and a bit unsteady. I'm looking for the one or two where I was apparently photographed trying to ride on the back of a chihuahua. I would have tried anything in those days...
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    Make a virtue of a necessity - print small. Most of my family's album photographs were tiny, only a few studio pictures got close to 5 x 7. The pleasure, even in my reading glasses years, is peering into the image to pick out details from the past. Incidentally, a friend of mine who has a Leica mostly prints 5 x 4", and beautifully at that. The scale gives them an intimacy, especially as he presents them in a book, that gallery sized prints so often lack.
