The Long Way Home


From Old Faithful to Samarkand

I can’t go to Uzbekistan this year or Wyoming, but I can travel through these old photos. Some I found in my Florida travels and the one of Jeff’s Aunt Helen is hilarious. I have to dedicate an entire blog to just-photos of Aunt Helen – she poses the same way in every picture. The only way we know some photos are different is because of the dates on the back. It’s like someone cut and pasted her into various backgrounds. Amazing. 

Old Faithful Aunt Helen, 1964

Laguna Beach, 13 Aug 53: "Perils of Pauline. Imagine objecting to this."

written on the back: "In the garden of the Samarkand. Long shadows mean good luck for the photographer. So says the Buddha."
