This afternoon I got VERY EXCITED because a photograph I posted to Historypin was tweeted as a Pin of the Day:
I call this photograph ‘Military Baking’. It comes from my great-grandfather’s First World War pictures; he spent the War in Malta, obviously doing something to do with cooking. This is one of my favourites from the collection – I just love the whole set-up; the rolls arranged in neat rows, and the men standing almost to attention behind the table. Then there are the moustaches and the hats to marvel at, and the presence of the young boy to wonder at. I’d love to know whether it was taken in a spirit of seriousness or of comedy.
Historypin is a brilliant idea; it lets individuals or organisations upload photographs, and pin them to a map of the world. It’s especially cool if you have a photograph taken on the street…
