Mom has a big birthday today. I thought I'd post this picture of her from November, 1943. It's a Father's Day card she made while living with relatives in Sweden and Bengt was working as a journalist in Berlin. Love you, Mom.

I know, it's a little late, but I just got this and thought I'd post it. Maybe some Buffalo, NY readers may recognize a name or two in it. My father plays a Boy (Monday night) and Jared, a hostler (also Monday night). Dad was a student at the School of Practice there. Click to enlarge.
I recently sent off a few randomly chosen medium format black and white negatives shot by my grandfather Bengt Paul to ScanCafe in California ($2.49 per scan). They did a really nice job. I like the fact that these images have not seen the light of day in at least 80 years. I'm pretty sure the subject here is my grandmother Hildegard Paul. Love the light through the curtained window. I have thousands of Bengt's negatives.
The terrific shot above is of George Segal working on his wonderful "Cinema" sculpture, taken by Fred McDarrah in 1964. "Cinema" is one of the many amazing works from the 1960s in the Albright-Knox. Both the photo and the sculpture were given to the gallery by, who else, Seymour H. Knox, Jr.
