Salad Days = Maybe ?
Images and photographs are memories of what was and can no longer be.
Samuel had a milk cart, which was pulled by a faithful horse. He was an asthmatic and Mary was always concerned when he was over due home. On one occasion he was terribly late and panic set into the Underwood … Continue reading ?

The photograph above was taken with a Pentax K1000 35mm film camera in the studio of West Buckland School in the 150 building – September 2012. Tubes of oil paint, a photo by 35mm_photographs on Flickr.
