A year ago a student made this graphic display of his classmates of 2010. The faces really are not much different than the past except the clothing has changed and the modern problems are different too.
The faces really do look the same as you view the ones of the 60's and the 30's. A cousin's little girl sits with a smile while my Aunt Doris stands straight with her great looking dress. My parents are dressed in their morning everyday clothes ready to start the day in our old farmhouse.
More faces from the classes that my mom taught while she was in her late teens early twenties. The years of teaching started in 1937 and as you can see the faces seem the same. They could be modern people today even though the form of the picture tells us otherwise.
People who wanted a memory of themselves and the event in their lives hold themselves so still for the camera for it to capture their image.
My grandmother Brooks was so proud of all her things that she made to sell. This is as close to a smile that she ever put out for a camera.
