Album - Dinner Time for the Pets

Sometimes LOST GALLERY acquires a dusty bin of jumbled photographs that later, on closer examination, reveal a few photographs that seem related.

By examining the age, physical format (paper size, deckled edge or straight trim), the photo-lab's stamp on the reverse and of course the actual content, they seem related, from the same camera, from the same family and sometimes taken just a few moments apart.

There are a couple unrelated pets in this series.

What was the reason for the photographs?

Can you decide exactly what is going on?

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

"What are they doing?"


  1. I don't know what's going on, but it reminds me of springtime at my maternal grandmothers when she took in baby birds to feed. She usually kept them in her basement. In fact when she passed away we had to find a home for a robin and a pigeon. Neither could be released because both had been hit by trains and could no longer fly. So maybe this person had a soft spot for baby birds and wee mice.

    1. Thanks Tattered and Lost. I'm sure that's it. Someone had an unending compassion for living things. There must have been a mutual understanding here. These two creatures in these pictures are not known for their trust in humans.

      Thanks for the lovely story too. That is another side benefit of rescuing old photographs. They often trigger memories or thoughts that help fill in the colors and textures of our lives.
