Toronto. George Dunbar sent me an email with a few images showing various photographs of cameras in use. Over the years, I have collected a few images. Almost all are portraits or family groups. Taking photographs of workers in action was relatively rare as I learned.
In my own case, I have tried to record work as well as family activities, gardens, storms, etc – and portraits of family members. If you are a practicing photographer, be sure to capture scenes of modern day work. The photos will be worthwhile long after portraits of family members become of interest only to those lonely souls bent upon a narrow genealogy of their own family.
