About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribbles and Scrambles~ And They Did This Without Computers.

E-mail forwards. Some days I get so many that I barely even pay attention.

But this one is cool.

In Iowa in July of 1918 two photographers organized this amazing photo. Read the story here. And the same photographers...Arthur Mole and John Thomas shot other photos on display here.

Wow!! That was very cool. I can't imagine how long it took to plot out the men in different uniforms, placed just right to get the effect they wanted. And one more thing, they needed a HUGE Flat SPACE to assemble the men. I don't think they took to many photos like this a year!! :D

thanks for sharing.

Nora :D

I know. I can't remember and am too lazy to go reread it but the top of the torch was, I think, 1/4 mile away from the bottom. BIG FLAT SPACE with room to faint. It was 105 degrees and the guys were wearing wool uniforms.

I'm pretty sure 1918 living was a mite tougher than our lives.
