Today you get to choose how you read the story. You can just look at the photos, or read the copy and get a deep insightful blabber fest on how we all look at the universe. Are you a glass half full or empty kinda person. Do you use the term “I am a realist” meaning, the negative is always true. See? You are trapped in the deeper spiritual meaning of just some negatives found on ebay. Link at end of story.
As you can see, the negatives create an image of darkness, at night? And you are not sure if its backwards, or what is really going on. Kinda when you see the world in negative terms. It can cloud the brightness of life. These images are just a cool way to make the argument, that sometimes the brightness of where and when you are, is right there in front of you. It’s all in how you choose to see things.
With all this said, these negatives are a rare chance to see life clearly from the past. Time captured, and in focus and crisp. Not the crappy camera stuff. Who ever took these images, had a good eye, and good camera. And that brings up the other way to see this story.
Where and when is this? Florida? California? The seller is out of Tennessee, so East Coast is more likely. It feels like a Vacation resort kinda place. Very well manicured, and a crew of people that are there to make life nice.
As to date. POST WAR. The logo on the Chris Craft dates it. But some of the shots of the family scream 1930’s with all the womens clothing. It is possible that some shots were taken earlier???? Or maybe this family is still lost in the pre war universe. Which gets us back to the way we see the universe. Stuck in time, or ready to move on?
Ugh.. Okay, I have worn out my typing fingers and my outlook on life is shifting to, do I pee before I eat breakfast, or after? HERE IS THE LINK TO THE EBAY NEGATIVES.
