Thanksgiving in images

Yes, as a holiday, itís historically twisted and tangled, implicated in sentimental false histories, and subject to commercialized superficiliaties. But the underlying concept and value is good!

Post your images and anecdotes of thanksgiving (with large or small T) here.



Hereís the urban turkey who came down regularly from the riverside butte in Eugene for feed outside a frame shop. As far as I know, he still walks unmolested downtown.

I forgot about the tripod and no one wanted to wait including myself. We didn't have any turkey either dang it but we are still grateful!

Df and a pancake 50 high iso 3200 gives it a sorty grainy feel which is nice like glazed ham.

Dear Board,

My parents put their dog Jody down a few months ago. Having had her for over 14 years they soon discovered they missed having a dog underfoot.

And so they got Pepper. She's a little itty-bitty thing but she is a lot of fun and more importantly, she is bringing a lot of happiness to my parents.

@charjohncarter - that photo could have been taken yesterday, a fascinating and timeless family image.

Hi John -- I'll bite. Soft shadows are nice. How did this happen with flashbulbs? Wide beam-spread, an "open-bulb" effect by bounced light? or what?

Here are two images from my Thanksgiving dinner two years ago in the Washington DC suburbs with relatives. My sister in law had an unusual way of cooking the turkey.

As for Thanksgiving in 2018, I spent a quiet day baking 3 pumpkin pies from scratch, i.e. no canned pumpkin, for a Thanksgiving dinner on Black Friday with friends.

Hey that would work good with the ham we cooked I'll have to try it at Christmas.

Handmade pumpkin pie...yum

Thanks, for the comment. I'd like to pass it along to W. K. Amonette but he is gone.

I have no idea (there were not E-flash at the time this was taken: 1952) but even when I used AG-1 bulbs in the early 60s the light was softer. I know you can do that today with E-flash, but you have to work at it.

W. K. Amonette used a IIIF on his photo, and I'm guessing he had a fan reflecter with a small blue bulb.

Here is one of mine with a AG-1 bulb: slide fim, with a (very) small fan reflector and Ag-1 bulb and IIIf (around 1965):
