ABC Wednesday: Norma

Norma, June 6, 1940

wonders of wonders,
a babe's studio portrait
by her great-uncle

My family was fortunate
to have an uncle
who owned a photography studio.
Consequently, this portrait of me
was shot by this same uncle,
named Barney H. Kern.
Of course, it was not shot with color film,
since it was taken in the year of my birth, 1940. 
I do not know the process how the coloring 
was done, but I know that it
was hand-colored after the film was developed.
Perhaps you noticed that his logo was also
hand written.

Vintage Weekly: Easter 1965

Easter 1965 at My Parents' Home
By this time,
my maternal grandmother
had come to live with my parents.  
Standing beside her is a much younger cousin of mine. 
This photo sparks warm memories 
of my parents’ open door policy of welcoming family members 
who were in need of a stopping place 
due to life’s circumstances whether it be financial or health. 
 My grandmother’s age was 71.  
Now, at this time of my life, I am three years older than she was.
