William Bennett 01
1. When was this photo taken?
2. Where was this photo taken?
Grand Rapids, MN: Manor House where my mom was in assisted living.
3. Who took this photo?
4. What are we looking at here?
Grandma was looking at some mail and grandson Ben was reading Harry Potter: this was just a couple years before she died so probably the last photo of the two of them together. Likely, my mom was asking Ben about the book; I think he might have been reading it to her and he's trying to figure out how to explain what a muggle is.
5. How does this old photo make you feel?
Bittersweet tears; love; bit of smile pride, melancholy passing of childhood; surprise and joy to see this forgotten moment, which is now with me forever.
6. Is this what you expected to see?
I had no idea what was on the film...I thought it might be a roll from when I was in Korea. Better yet, it was from that winter trip with other winter pictures of sliding, snowshoeing, science experiments, Korean Story-time, high school friends, winter activities.
7. What kind of memories does this photo bring back?
Of course my mom and family, and tons of growing up in Northern Minnesota winters, but immediate photo brings up the power and depth of Family.
8. How do you think others will respond to this photo?
Immediate family and cousins will like it...strangers might try to figure out the inscrutable moment...
Thank you Rolls of America: Without you, I would never have known what was on that roll.
