About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

  1. Strange eyes (except for the female with the black hair). They look like aliens who have infiltrated Earth and pose like a normal family (they make one last photo before the mothership picks them up).
