my grandpa's dad, circa 1930something.

Nowadays we have hundreds (or more) photos of ourselves. Doing this, doing that. If you had to choose one photo to personify your best traits, or offer a sketch of your truest form (to future generations) which would it be? 

The image above is perfect. I would prefer something closer to this. In the moment, classic apparel. Nothing fancy or surpassing plain and of necessity. Caught in the hustlebustle of some sort of daily grind. Grit in mouth. Mind preoccupied on everything but posing.


  1. I think me and him would have gotten on rather well.

  2. I don't think he spoke a word of english. straight from the ukraine.
