Ernie Webb

Photos by Salt Water New England


  1. Just look at the character of that face. Reminds me of family friends, relatives and those men at the farmers market or hardware who always delighted in messing up my hair. Oh, we have pictures of those folk of my childhood but they are posed, with the ladies looking prim and proper and the men with pained expressions dressed in rather illfitting clothes - sometimes an open neck white shirt with a suit coat and Sunday overalls. If the men were photographed alone, they were usually posed standing by a car with one foot on the running board. I wish I had pictures like these that showed the Ernie Webbs in my life. Thanks for again showing life as it is and was.

  2. Anonymous 10:47, there is truth to what you wrote. The most relaxed and heart-warming photos I have of my grandmother and her siblings were taken by me when I was a kid. I think the relatives I photographed just relaxed, confident that my photos would never turn out anyway.

  3. i love the repair in the shoulder of his shirt. The time and thought that went into it. And you don't throw it away, you fix it.
