Up River


Their tent is a mast and sail - I wonder where they left their boat. The fellow on the left looks a little like my father - I wonder if we are related.

Using this as a prompt for a backstory could make for a good creative writing assignment.

True. There are certainly plenty of details to run with.

He does look like dad. Did you notice the socks behind him? It's the socks that make me think that this is not a staged picture. Do you think they are shipwrecked? If so, I'm glad the camera survived. I wonder what the photographer looked like. I bet he had a mustache.

I don't think they are shipwrecked, I think they are camping. Possibly hunting? Or fishing? And the plan all along was to use the mast and sail. See the camp stove behind them? This was a planned trip.

Agreed about the photog's mustache.
