    • Ah, thank you, Karen! 🙂

      I love those old photos: They are admittedly always slightly eerie (as I comment-replied bellow), but they are also incredible fascinating.

      I love how the boy is sitting perfectly still, but looking to the side, as if he spied something incredibly interesting and is only waiting for all this taking-picute-b.s. to be over, so that he can run over and investigate.

      B.t.w., I’ve found that this is one of the pictures that really benefits highly from the “Flickr black back ground feature” (Follow the Flickr Link for the picture and hit “L” – just L – on your keyboard. To exict the black back ground hit the escape-key) 🙂

    • Thank you, Erik! You ALL deserve a great big LITERAL hug for putting up with me right now, but since I feel that’s somehow close to impossible, I will have to settle for a great big METAPHORICAL hug instead 😀

    • It IS eerie! You are so right! 😉

      I think it really doesn’t make a huge difference (in regards to the eerie part) if the lady is lounging in the background or not … but then again a lot of the historic photos are really eerie to me: A weird mixture of lifeless and ready to jump out of the picture at any given moment! – I (personally) believe it has something to do with them having to keep their posture for so long 🙂

    • Hah! Yes! I think he might actually be wearing tights AND socks! 😉 Funny, I saw that when I looked at the picture, but I figured that was just how they rolled back then 😉

      I love the under armour reference: Made me chuckle! 😀

  1. Ahhh… this picture makes me miss summer and my hammock. It is truly a wonderful place to lay still and let my mind wander.

    Thanks for remembering that I wrote that instructional hammocking post 🙂

    Hope the studying is going well. I find worrying about a test is much worse than the actual test itself. That’s the reward for months of anxiety.

    • I love your posts and the hammock-one was not just hilarious, but also very informative 😉

      Studying is going so-so. The worst part (as you rightly pointed out!) is the anxiety level: Seriously, I wished I could just take it today and have it over with. – Thank you for remembering and caring – it really does mean a lot to me! 😀

  2. This is such a great shot! Thanks for sharing!!! 🙂 I really need to speed up my reading, there is so much great content that I miss out on!

    • Thank you 🙂 Don’t worry about the speedy reading (at least as far as I’m concerned) – I’ll have so much to catch up on once 03.02.12 has come and gone 😉
