Sunday Morning Coffee

Okay, it's really Sunday afternoon, but I worked all night and went to bed at 8 a.m. this morning.

This Farberware model 206 was a recent find, although I have several in this identical or near identical design.

Flower Power

There's something poetic about this slide.  Something about the beauty of peacetime after the horrors of war.  Anyway, we've gone from squatting in the latrine to squatting in some flowers.

This slide was simply titled "Latrine".  Talk about closeness.  I'm not sure that canvas wrap is really providing much privacy.  I have nightmares about this (not this particular slide, mind you, just this situation).  This is from the same set of slides as the previous post.  Talk about occupied in Japan. I presume our subject is taking the photo, which is a whole other level of weird.  I guess he wanted to let someone at home know about the arrangements.

I acquired a collection of family slides at an estate sale this past weekend.  Many are "red border" Kodachrome 35mm slides which puts them at pre-1960.  As it turns out, many were from the late 1940's when the original owner was stationed in Occupied Japan at Camp McNair around 1947.  I'll be posting some select picks (and pics) in the following weeks.

First up is this photo of a bountiful feast.  The color and composition of this was striking to me. The original owner of the slides, Milton Gast,  is center.
