Still taking silly pictures of our cats
I learned a little more about the Kinney family today and...
after 106 years of photography evolution we still use it to take silly pictures of our cats.
"Felis Sitting Up" 1908, Asa Kinney
"Cat Tub" 2014, James Gehrt
Box five has been primarily photos of Kinney's children, Elizabeth and Foster, their animals and the garden. The animals included, rabbits, chickens, a cat, a dog, and a few sheep. There were also a few images shot in the Kinney's garden. A garden gazebo called "Elizabeth's House"
I'll try to process a few of the quick images and post them soon.
