Farewell

This is a bittersweet day: I am saying goodbye to History in Photos. I've been at this for five years and have put a lot of time and effort into finding historical photos that - to me, and hopefully to you - are interesting, educational, and have something to say about the human condition. Other priorities are now calling, but it has been a vastly interesting - and occasionally obsessive - journey for me. I never did this for page views but I hope it has been interesting for you as well. 

I end, somewhat symbolically, with the final set of photos from the 1954 road trip taken by the four Canadian ladies.

  4. It must be a relief in some senses to no longer have this commitment.

    It saddens me that so many blogs are no longer maintained - I am not referring to you when I say this.

    In the last few years people are leaving bits and pieces and traces of their activities and interests all over the place.

    I myself lost my 'impetus'(for want of a better word) for maintaining my own studio blog and do regret it. Having said that I do want to return to regular posting. It's printmakingart.blogspot by the way.

    A diary or online journal can be of great use to the individual and I have referred to my own blog from time to time when trying to remember how I used a specific technique or when that exhibition in e.g., China took place and so on. I love blogs so I hope people keep writing them - and I really do appreciate the commitment and time it requires

    so mainly I just want to say a big THANK YOU and
    good luck with your further projects.

  7. Thanks for all you did. It's nice to look at historic pictures and for a brief moment see that part of history that now only resides perhaps as a photograph to some. For others - a memory. Again thanks!

  21. Hi!!! Am so happy I got mine from Mike Fisher. My blank ATM card can raise €2 000 daily. I got it from him last week and now I have €14 000 free. Empty ATM will withdraw money from any ATM machines and there is no name for it, it is not traceable and now I have money in business and enough money for me and my family to live. I'm really happy that I met Mike Fisher because I met two people before him and they took my money without knowing that they were scams. But I'm happy now. Mike Fisher sent a card through DHL and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him now he is not like any other scammer to pretend to have an ATM card, he gives it free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and nobody ever gets caught. I am grateful to Mike Fisher because he changed my story suddenly. The card works in all countries except Mali and Nigeria. Mike Fisher's email address is: blankatm002@gmail.com

  22. This post helped me to know about the illusion of control. I think it is the tendency for people to overrate their ability to control different events. It occurs when someone feels a sense of control over outcomes that they demonstrably do not Jogos online

  30. عکاسی در
    آتلیه کودک موضوع مهمیه که هیچ مامان و بابایی نمیتونن ازش بگذرن. خاطره سازی با عکسای کودک و همین‌طور حالتای زیبایی که ممکنه کمتر تکرار بشه، حس مثبتی به شما میده که هرگز حاضر نیستین از دستش بدین. سعی کنین برای ایجاد این حس مثبت، بهترین آتلیه کودک را پیداکنین. خاطره سازی با عکس آتلیه کودک دلبندمون.
    عکس آتلیه کودک خاطراتو براتون زنده نگه میداره. میتونین حسی که از به دنیا اومدن کودک دلبندتون داشتین، بیان کنین؟ میتونین اون لحظه رو که اولین لبخندش به شما هدیه شد به یاد بیارین؟ چقدر اون لبخند توی ذهنتون نقش بسته یا بهتر بگیم، چقدر هنوز اون لبخند در ذهن شما پررنگ باقی مونده؟ اگر در آتلیه کودک عکس میگرفتین لازم بود به ذهنتون فشار بیارین تا یادتون بیاد؟

    آتلیه نوزاد
    فکر میکنین چند سال دیگه، این نقش همچنان باهمون رنگ توی ذهن شما باقی میمونه یا کم‌رنگ‌تر میشه و پس از سال‌ها حس زیبای اولین لبخند توی ذهنتون از بین میره؟ حالا تصور کنین اگر از همین لحظه شیرین در آتلیه کودک عکسی میگرفتین و این عکس برای شما باقی مونده بود، تا زمانی که عکس وجود داشت، خاطره‌ی لبخند از ذهن شما محو میشد؟
    مسلماً امکان نداشت که این لحظه از ذهن شما دور بشه. تمام حرکات و رفتارهای کودک به همین سادگی از یاد میرن. کودک با بزرگ شدنش حرکات و رفتارهای جدیدی تجربه میکنه که اکثر رفتارهای قبلیو از ذهن ما پاک میکنه. توی یه چشم به هم زدن، کودک ما به نوجوان تبدیل میشه و از اون خاطره‌های شیرین کودکی جز سایه‌ای در ذهن ما نمیمونه. شاید پیش خودتون بگین که ما عکس‌های زیادی از کودکی فرزندمون توی خونه و فضای بیرون میگیریم ولی واقعاً عکس‌های شما با آزمون‌وخطا نیست؟ لحظه‌های نابی را از دست نمیدین؟ آتلیه کودک به خاطر تخصصی بودن نوع کاری که انجام میده، میدونه چطور بهترین لحظه‌های کودکو عکاسی کنه. لحظه‌هایی که شاید توی خونه یا بیرون از خونه شما از دست داده باشین.

    آتلیه بارداری

    سن آتلیه کودک از یک‌سالگی تا هفت سالگیه. توی این سنین کودک لحظه‌هایی مثل اولین لبخند، اولین روزی که نشست، اولین قدمی که برداشت و اولین …. این اولین‌ها هیچ‌وقت دوباره تکرار نمیشه. به‌جای اون شیرینی‌های دیگه‌ای توی ذهن ما از کودکمون جا می گیره. چرا همه شیرین‌ها را باهم نداشته باشیم؟ وقتی به آتلیه کودک بیاین و عکس کودکتونو تخصصی ثبت میکنین، انگار اون لحظه هرروز براتون تکرار میشه و ثبت خاطره یعنی این.
    آتلیه کودک میدونه چطور از طبیعی‌ترین و قشنگ‌ترین لحظه‌های کودکتون خاطره بسازه. همکاران ما در آتلیه کودک با تخصصی که دارن، کودک میشن و اینطوریه که کودکتون تمام شیرینی‌های خودشو بروز میده. باور نمیکنین؟ امتحان کنین. یادتون باشه که عکاسی کودک در آتلیه همونقدر که دلپذیر و پر از حس مثبته، همونقدرم سخت و تخصصیه وگرنه شما خودتون این کارو انجام میدادین. پس به دنبال یه آتلیه کودک خوب بگردین.
    ما باافتخار منتظر حضور شما و دلبندتون در آتلیه کودک هستیم تا تخصصی‌ترین عکس‌ها را از زیباترین لحظات کودک تقدیمتون کنیم.
