over a year and I am finally here again...what happened?

Blogs can be so addictive in the beginning, writing as much as you can..and then time goes by and it falls off..until here I am foolishly admitting how negligent I have been in my photo so sorry...(of course I have excuses, we all have excuses!!)

Well, here are a few things that I have learned in these past many months:

#1. Time goes fast and memories are what you have to hang on to
(so take some photos)

#2. There are never enough photos to capture a moment (although the iphone with the moving photo is really cool!!)

#3 Most people never mark when the photo was taken and where it is

#4 That photos are definitely becoming a thing of the past and soon they will be extinct (so sad!! and yet they are becoming so much more valuable!)

I have also learned that with grandkids..there is never enough time because you are trying to get the most out of what you are doing with them..and afterwards because you are a grandparent and quite a bit older than you were when you had are pooped...

So, enough of that on to

Photo news:

Well....let's see, if you have been following my auctions, you will see that
this past year I was able to land some AMAZING dance photos..always a plus!!
I also scored some amazing Wedding photos and some amazing portraits of well as various other cool finds..
but I will say that it is painfully obvious to me that this is getting harder and harder to find..and the prices are getting higher and higher..
but that is for me on my end, I still try to start low in my auctions and put up good prices in my store and work hard to either show great quality photos or great subject matter photos..or when it is really will get both!!

This week I am featuring a few that are my favs and I will show you them here:
a rare photograph measuring 5.5x8 of a man with a beard dated 1890  real neat glimpse into the past.

an ethereal dancer with a dress that was definitely copied 50 years later by a major design company.

a true work of art... this photo would be amazing framed in a home~
Have I told you how much I love photos..oh yes...that is know that!!
