Yea, that pic scared tha hell outta me. It`s like tha people who set him up like that INTENDED to freak everybody out! Damn...
I only found one of them freaky.. the one of the toddler with its eyes open in 3rd column *shiver*
Children are just very vunerable to illness, even nowdays, as they`re immune systems arent fully developed. And much more vunerable those days as the conditions were poorer then, no anti-bacterial wipes and plasters handy if the kids scraped their knee, they didnt have heating and babies need to keep warm, and i dont think vacinations had started then against diseases like meningitis and measles
The one with the boy and his dead twin is particularly sad.
The baby pictures were the saddest. They don`t even look dead. Just sleeping.
"Okay, mom...now I want you told hold your dead baby up so the camera can see him...and tilt your head to the left a little...okay, there. Say `cheese`!"
thanx a lot guys. geez. lol
Anyways, I can completely understand this tradition. Id probably even partake in it, were I in that time period. However, this should have been a rule :
Never take pictures of dead people WITH THEIR EYES OPEN.
its wrong. Creepy. Whatever.
Anyways, I actually liked the last on in the first coloumn on the first page -- she looks so peaceful.
I went to so many funeral... I saw so many heart broken moments... I think some people will say it was "creepy" but I think its normal to still want a souvenir of the person.
And back in time, like many say, it was expensive to take a picture. Once in a lifetime. I understand the mother taking picture of the dead baby... I understand it very very very much... You carried that baby, waited for it, it was such a nice event when the baby was there... and now he/she is gone... Its very hard...
But its amaze me... anyone who have see a dead body know that its actually start to stink in a very few hrs... and unless you send it to the morgue... well its nasty... 9 days... i just can imagine the smell of rotten flesh >.<
the one with the two pics on page 1the girl that looked about 14 with a baby
that sent shivers down my spine :[
HOLY poo WHY DIDNT I LISTEN!?*cries*that has been branded into my mindand i dont like it >.<
Not like now that for $5 we can get a disposable 30 shot camera. Back then it was $5,000 to get A picture!
My grandparents once told me that when their uncle died, the entire family pitched money to have his picture taken, they suited him up, proped him up, and took a picture as if he was just sitting in a chair with a suit on and his eyes closed.
