It is easier, Muffy, to understand how you have avoided the pitfalls of fashion silliness, including the current rampant "prep" silliness, with such people of substance on your virtual board of directors!

Thank you for these great pictures. Part of me wants more details about each, but I even more respect the sense of decorum you have displayed. I am impressed you waited two years into the blog to post these. Speaking of which, happy two year anniversary and 56 thousand profile views!

As someone who has spent more hours than I care to disclose in a darkroom, I love how well your father has captured the very essence of the personalities (as well as the places) he photographs. Thanks so much for sharing!! Now, I see where you get your "eye" from. You either have it, or you don't. ;)

Muffy - Thank you for sharing more of your father's photographs. The Black and White Photographs category is one of my favorites. You must have some great prints hanging in your house.

Happy two year anniversary! I can't imagine life before Muffy!

This is one of your posts that make many of your other posts make more sense. It also makes me want to be a better person. So thanks, I think!

When I saw the first picture, I thought "wow, Muffy's dad really looked like Arthur Miller". I was momentarily confused!

Another great post. You have inspired me to have pictures taken by my Mother in France (1955) and some I took in China (2001) enlarged and framed. You've had a chance to meet some truely great people.

The close-up of Sterling Hayden is amazing, the beard, the lines on the face, just excellent.

The shot of Mr. Hayden is beautiful. Your father was quite a shutterbug!

Thank you for posting the photo of Pat Moynihan. Moynihan was and remains one of those politicians who I am most fond of. The world is a smaller place for his absence.
