Family faces

Nominated by Elyse Doerflinger: "I have to nominate this one because of the face of the little boy that is front and center. His smile is too funny in comparison with the mostly serious faces in the photo."

Also nominated by Debby Black. "This one you have to zoom in on to appreciate. The two older girls looking so mature, all dressed up with their hair up and big bows. The younger girl has such long hair. The baby is precious."

Michael McCook writes of the photo: "The seated child is my great grandmother who died very young in 1917. Everyone in the family thought there were no photos of her in existence, so to find this after 5 years of searching was unbelievable."

Studio portrait

Nominated by Elyse Doerflinger: "I nominate this studio portrait mainly because I love the background - someone must have hand painted it. Whenever I see an old studio background like this, I always wonder how many pictures exist with that background."

Seconded by Terry Wright.

Family in front of house

Click here for full-sized version.

Nominated by Chris Whitten: "I think this one is great. Even though it's a posed family, I like that they're in front of their house and there's a lot of 'reality' in it. The baby carriage in is neat. Oh, yeah, and for me seeing a family dog is always a plus."

Seconded by Elyse Doerflinger: "How can you not with that unique baby carriage?"

Couple on bike

Eddings-22-6.jpg

Nominated by Maggie: "I love the carefreeness of the couples' faces, the sepia tone, the stamp of the era in the vintage car and bike."

Seconded by Chris Whitten: "I agree, Maggie. It's not as old as most of the nominees -- it's really quite modern -- but I love that it's not a standard studio pose. There's so much life in it."
