Without him what would little blogs do?
With many apologies to Lerner and Lowe and the wonderful score of Gigi, I am deeply thankful for George Eastman -- of Rochester and Eastman Kodak -- who made it possible for the world, and this blogger, to easily take photographs. Before Mr. Eastman came along in the second half of the nineteenth century taking photos outside a studio meant bringing a vast array of equipment. I'm counting many blessings for all the rolls of film I've taken over the years and the Kodak moments they represent.
During our visit to Rochester I enjoyed touring Eastman House, Mr. Eastman's house and gardens and a wonderful museum devoted to photography. There was a great exhibit on portraits that I especially enjoyed. I also loved the gardens, which were rich and lush with wisteria, one of my favorite flowers.
Of course what would graduation day be without a graduation picture? It was a beautiful, sunny day and perfect for a graduation. No clouds for our happy party!
Wishes for bright, clear, cloudless days and many Kodak moments!
