David did me a beautiful kindness this week and conjured some enchantment using his photos of Los Angeles, quotes from Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett…and my novel. Can you believe it? What splendid company! So with gratitude I invite you to come along for the ride.
“Photography is a magic thing!” wrote Jacques Henri Lartigue, when he was seven years old. My name is David McCarthy and I’ve been looking for the “magic thing” ever since I opened my Kodak Brownie when I was seven years old, to see what was inside, and exposed half a roll of film!
Here I am with the Brownie, age 4 1/2.
Once in a while, I will also be posting photos taken by my Grandfather, D.L. Campbell. They are from a collection of slides that I inherited.
