In all the years of her youth, she embraced picture frames as purely decorative objects that held snapshots of loved ones. Did she ever contemplate the possibility that her own image would at some point, belong to the archives of the past?
All of the posing and smiling and picture taking was completely taken for granted. Memories of events that happened just days before to share amongst family and friends then placed behind a pane of glass and a framed. There was never a thought that today's snapshots would ever become the future Art Nouveau for onlookers of the future. Would tomorrow's generations look back at today's images and think "oh, how romantic, ye old times were."
Would those who have not yet been born look at these images and see the anguish and strife of today's rough, tough times? Will they think these were the "good, ole times?"
Or would they simply remain complacent. Amused by our aesthetics, laughing at our attire, our hair or our lifestyles.
Perhaps these photos will contradict what future onlookers think happened in these days and turn their world upside down. What she wants them to think of her could result in just the reverse!!!
Oops--having a difficult time turning things around here!!!! Give me a moment. I'm trying to change my image.....
Or perhaps, our calls for help saving the planet today will serve as the catalyst for action in tomorrow's world.
She sincerely hopes to leave a lasting and positive impression. An image of her at a time when she was in her prime.
Let's hope with these images---a two dimensional flashback in time--will prompt others to dig deep into the archive for secrets of life that lie well past the frame.
