Future History

Future -History-and-weddings-Jamie-Bosworth-Photographer

History is a fluid thing… we make it every day. Some of it will get saved for years and some of it will evaporate in a few hours. As a fairly recent invention, photographs have given us a way to look at history a little differently than other types of art. Photographs are personal and portable… you can pass them down to the generations to follow and hope that they continue to be shared.

In my head, I imagine the youngsters at this pool table, many years from now… old enough to have have grown kids and grandchildren of their own. Someone will pull out an old album or a beautiful box of special things and this photo will be in it. The kids will hear the story of the grand hotel in downtown Portland with the little library off of the huge lobby. Someone will say that the history of the hotel mentions that it used to be an iconic department store… that their Great Grandmother used to meet her friends for lunch at the Georgian Room on the 10th floor.

I don’t know about you but history is astounding and I like helping to keep some of it alive. ;0)

Happy New Year to everyone!

Possibilities

There is a shop across from where I get my hair cut and the display always includes a cool retro sort of dress… the kind of dress that sets my mind wandering a little. I can’t imagine that I am the only one affected that way… this particular party dress really caught me one winter day. These are vintage pieces but I am absolutely sure that they have a new adventure or two ahead of them.

Imagine a dress… a young woman in a dreamy new dress. Her sweetheart is taking her to dinner and a late concert… it’s a special evening. Somewhere along the way, a question is asked and a world opens before her… yes is the answer!

If you happen to be getting engaged or married in this wonderful new year, now is the time to get some of your plans firmed up… I’d be happy to help! ;0)
