The Anonymous Angler

So many fish photos are unattributed; one can search any auction site and find hundreds of them. They capture a tiny fraction of time and space, and they leave behind questions that will never be answered.

Here's a favorite of mine. Undated, place unknown, boy angler unattributed. But it could just as well be anywhere, at any time between 1930 and 1960.

The Anonymous Angler is all of us. That's why these photos are so neat.

Here's to the unknown angler. May their pictures always reflect a simpler, and happier, time.
