in color

an icy morning on thursday = the first weekday i've had off in awhile.

i spent some time looking at these photos from the Library of Congress. They were taken by FSA photographers during the Great Depression and were part of a 2006 exhibit called "Bound for Glory: America in Color".

in school, i remember lots of time spent studying black & white photographs by the FSA photographers, but I don't remember even a mention of color photos from the Depression. i think seeing this era in color makes it seem even more real & relatable-- and not just distant people living in an antique black & white world a million years ago.

and i love seeing all of those patterned fabrics and papered walls in color! so much to look at. these are just a few of heaps of photographs you can look at HERE.
