Uncle and father. on Flickr.
Dad was 14 months older than his brother. Most likely, the photograph was taken by their mother. Dad located the print and I copied it with my iPhone 4S.

Modern photography is often as simple as, well, point and shoot. But for many photographers, megapixels are out, and film stock is in. (Sept. 7)
this is certainly good to hear. a couple of days ago i posted (either here or on facebook) a rumor about whether or not Leica would continue to produce film cameras.
Speculation regarding the fate of Leica’s most recent film cameras - the M7 and MP - has flared up online since May when Leica’s owner Andreas Kaufmann spoke at Japan Camera Industry Institute where he allegedly said that production of the cameras had been discontinued in 2009.
However, asked by BJP to clarify the situation, Leica says that it “has not stopped producing its analogue camera models, the Leica M7 and Leica MP, nor does it currently have any intention to do so.”
I was struck, while conducting an extremely informal survey of a couple of dozen friends and a few professionals in the field of children’s literature, by how many said Sendak’s work had eluded their younger selves and/or their own offspring. Which kids’ books, I had wanted to know, are appreciated more in theory, or by adults, than by actual kids? I never heard a knock against Beverly Cleary and only one against Dr. Seuss. But probably half my sample group had shrugged at “Where the Wild Things Are.” “Impenetrable,” one educator and critic said. In her view, while the book was written from a child’s perspective, it had the processed feel of “something arrived at years later as a construct to understand the writer’s own anger.” Actually, I think that’s what I now like about the book, that sense of self-aware struggle — and whiff of psychoanalysis. Sendak hinted at this in a 1966 interview with the New Yorker: “It’s only after the act of writing the book that, as an adult, I can see what has happened, and talk about fantasy as catharsis, about Max acting out his anger as he fights to grow… . For me, the book was a personal exorcism. It went deeper into my own childhood than anything I’ve done before.”
