The Liner Notes of Photographic History #4: Astrophotography

Things to Love #4: Retrofuturism

Retrofuturism includes imagined styles from the future, conceived of in the past. The 20th century was filled with these kinds of things, as we aimed for the sky and then participated in the Space Race. Anything space-y and modern was cool.

Things to Love #3: Family History and Genealogy

From an early age I've been interested in genealogy. My paternal grandmother had so much information about where and who she came from. I remember seeing a huge, handwritten wheel that was made with her at the center and her family branching out from there. I was struck by it all. And, when she died, I volunteered to be the caretaker of all of the family history documents, letters, photos, and memorabilia.

If you don't have the time or the means to travel to England, you can pretend, with a Bristol Box full of English goodies. Disclaimer: I have yet to actually set foot in England, so these might be a bit stereotypical for "tea time", but hey, it's all in fun.
