Welcome to our regular feature, Saturday Snapshot, our opportunity to showcase photos we or friends and family have captured. The event is now hosted by West Metro Mommy.
Today I’m going to share some older photos that spotlight artistic people or endeavors. In the first shot, my oldest and youngest son are posed as young artistes, outside an apartment they shared in Sacramento, CA, in 1991. The oldest was 25 at the time, and the youngest was 20. My oldest son is the photographer who captured the shot….and at that time, his specialty was dark themes or brooding subjects.
In the next shot, my youngest son, whose artistic endeavors lean toward building things (he has built various bookshelves for me over the years); and in this photo, we see the treehouse he built for the grandkids (and friends) among the Eucalyptus trees on my foothill property.
And in the final photo, captured in Berlin by my eldest son, who lives and works there, we see the police presence in the aftermath of a protest by artistic types; they objected to the sale of portions of the Wall to developers, which would mean taking down the sections that had been renovated as an art gallery.
Now I’m off to see what the rest of you are sharing…
