About That Header Picture

So, you may wonder what the picture at the top of the blog with the old truck in it is about. Through some deductive reasoning, you probably (correctly) assumed that it is a shot of the house being built. One of the cool things about owning a house that comes through your family (and was built by them) is that you usually get a lot of historical documents and reference materials. I have a whole collection of pictures starting from when the foundations were poured forward – I even have the plans. I’ll post more on those another time. The picture has a handwritten date of October 19th, 1958 from my Grandfather on the back. Coincidentally, I posses the camera this was taken with – a Voigtlander Bessa 6×9 that takes 120 medium-format film and shoots amazingly beautiful pictures. Here is the uncropped shot:
