This morning, I attended the Memorial for a good friend who recently died unexpectedly, and who had been fond of old-fashioned cartoons and TV series. Another friend brought a ceramic 'couple' - Olive Oyl and Popeye.
This was the first picture I took--

For me, this image has an almost timeless - or 'out of time' - quality. I can almost imagine this photo being used by a 22nd century paleo-geographer, to show future generations what things looked like a century before - but at the same time, it also has the feeling of an old vintage photograph, something discovered in the study of one's great-great-aunt-or-uncle from the end of the XIXth century.

It's also a fine photograph to just look at.

I know someone who loves old cartoons like those. Sometimes he finds the most obscure and weird stuff. His latest one is Dogtanian. It is the adventures of dogs as the three musketeers. I so sorry for your loss Miguel.
