They wore old-fashioned clothes, so I suppose the photo was taken in the late 19th or early 20th Century. I don’t know for sure; just guessing.
I wondered why someone would want their photo taken in such dim light. You could hardly see any of their features, other than it was a man and woman, or maybe a girl and a boy. Their faces were in deep shadow–except for the eyes. Oh, those eyes. I can never get them out of my mind.
Was it some freak of light? something on the film? perhaps a flash that caused their eyes to appear as two large globes of light–the only features that stood out so plainly?
I found the old photo in the attic of the house I am renting. No one seems to be able to place it, or identify the two people captured on film. I really would like to find out who they were, and where the photograph was taken.
But perhaps, for my own peace of mind, it is better that I do not know.
