This weeks topic is “Close Up(s)”
When I saw this topic the first thing I thought of were pictures. So I scoured my photo albums for pictures that resemble the stills you see from actors. So here’s a few I found.
Billy Bob Finnell 1929- (uncle) and his sister Martha Jo Hutchins Finnell 1932-2010 (my mother).
Sidney 1833-1914 and Susan Brown Pierce 1845-1923 (2nd great grand parents) & daughter Mattie Emogene Pierce (great grand parent 1870-1928)
Martha Jean Beckham 1929-2003 (1st cousin 1x removed) and Margaret Hutchins Howard 1931- (Aunt).
John F. Finnell 1852-1932 (2nd g-uncle) and Jack and Eunice Walman (3rd cousins).
Lacy Beckham 1903-1962 (great-uncle) and his brother Cleo Beckham 1900-1989 (great-uncle).
While this is not a close up of people the close up is of the bridge. This is Glienicke Bridge, featured in the movie Bridge of Spies starring Tom Hanks. This was taken by my father from west Berlin 1961.
And me in my younger years. I think this was taken on a trip to Disney World.
