I have been busier than I would like to be lately. Where did the summer go? I can't believe it is already the end of summer. This weekend is the Portland Zine Symposium. It is the tenth year and I have been to every one. I will be tabling there with my new zine, Imaginary Life #7.

I love using my old photographs and postcards for zines and art projects. That is why I started collecting them in the first place and also because I was just so drawn to them and to the untold stories they held. I don't have any pics of the new zine yet, but you can see some of the materials I used on the PonyBoy Press blog.

So, hopefully I will be back to sharing my ephemera collection with you soon. Meanwhile, how amazing is this color moving pictures from 1922! You can tell that some of the models don't quite get the moving part and are just posing. Interesting. I noticed that in that film Electric Edwardians.

You can almost hear the director saying, okay move around, do something. Come to think about it, I remember my dad saying the same thing to me and my sister when he would pull us up to use the last of his 16mm reel. You think we would have known to not just pose. Ha!

Anyway, this is beautiful and dreamy and seeing people in color form 1922 is so amazing.
