1. When was this photo taken?
2. Where was this photo taken?
In my apartment
3. Who took this photo?
My ex wife
4. What are we looking at here?
My dog, Grapefruit, loved to stand. He would hold this position as long as you stayed with him (or he fell over), whichever came first.
5. How does this old photo make you feel?
It makes me feel like life is fleeting. Nothing in this picture is with me anymore. I am divorced and my ex took the dog. At the time, all the material things in the picture meant something to me (down to the ring on my hand) and now they don't. It also makes me miss my dog.
6. Is this what you expected to see?
I have been sober for a few years now. Honestly, I thought I would see a lot of pictures of me drinking. But it makes complete sense that 90% of my pictures are of my animals. They have always meant so much to me. I also thought it was interesting that in 3 rolls of film, there were no pictures of my ex-wife. Perhaps that is telling.
7. What kind of memories does this photo bring back?
I don't know if this makes sense but it feels so familiar and also so unfamiliar. Like I know I was there and lived in that space. I had a very difficult divorce and it makes me happy to see some nice memories because when things went wrong in our relationship, I started to believe nothing was ever good.
8. How do you think others will respond to this photo?
I think they will thing Grapefruit the dog is the cutest thing ever.
