The Angelus


This is one of a set of postcards depicting the life of a family in their garden full of roses. If only all families could lead such a pleasant life…

I would love to smell the roses but being a suspicious photographer I smell a rat…

I tell people that everything was done with photography within the first couple of years of it's invention and I suspect that someone has done here what would take someone working with photoshop an absolute age.

Such a pleasant life was probably always a dream…

Seasons greetings to my favourite blogger in France.

So tranquil and earnest in their devotion! I love the way the camera captures their skin and brings them to life.

Caroline: I think that it was all staged in a studio...

Doris: A very pleasant scene. Looking a pictures of real peasant families of the time I would say that they are models.
