Poem for Sunday: An Old Memory An Old Memory I took the photo in 1983, just a few months after I got my first camera and I was only shooting black and white so I could learn how to use the camera. Even though it was black and white film, it was processed in a one-hour development machine intended for color and the black and white ended up sepia, which I really liked better than when I had it printed in black and white. It always looked like an older image and the sepia really reinforces that; it’s from the same era as “A Sunny Room”, and incidentally, the same cat, Kublai. The holidays are a time for celebration as well as a time for reflection and remembering. An Old Memory Cut-paper snowflakes taped to a wavy glass window reflecting the big front porch from an apartment I lived in long ago, and a cat I will always remember from when he and I were very young, just beginning, me just getting to know my camera, and my art; how did I capture a perfectly blended image to reflect those times? Poem © 2009 Bernadette E. Kazmarski . . . . . . . Where to find this image This was my holiday card from 2009, and I published it for sale in 2010. The message inside reads, “Wishing you wonderful memories this holiday season and new year.” The poem is printed on the back. You can find it in my Etsy shop singly or in a box of a dozen. 00Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...
