I was in Seattle and visited Watson Kennedy purveyors of home decor. They sell old photos torn from old albums displayed in a dresser drawer for $3 each. All the jumble of photos took me back to a time when I wasn't born yet. I was drawn in by the people, places, clothes from another era. The poses of the people in the shots seemed so different than pictures today. The photos had a beautiful unpolished quality to them. Some even had writing in the back written with beautiful penmanship. I bought a few. I'm trying to psycho-analyze myself why would I buy photos of people I don't know from a time I never lived? I find them more intresting than overly slick photos of today.
Here's Watson Kennedy's website.
