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. All good! Possibly proof that there are no bad photos of babies, kittens, or puppies. My favorite sub-genre is the Goat Cart photos. I stumbled across them years ago on eBay and very briefly toyed with the idea of collecting these children photos. Cute but just too many!

    1. Thanks Mike Brubaker. Yes, there are certainly a lot of them. And no, we just can't rescue all of them. I pick up the goat cart and pony ride photographs whenever they are not expensive. Some dealers have decided that is a premium item however. I have seen goat cart photographs in poor shape with an asking price of 20 dollars. Too much.
