Transcribing Images

A few years ago a great aunt of mine travelled to the Netherlands.  She brought with her a selection of around 50 photographs from my father’s side of the family.  I’ve been working on transcribing these images for Flickr.  I have written the photographs in a personal voice, using “my grandmother”, “my father” and “me”, and I have also experimented with transcribing them from a detached view.  Although I’m still sketching through the idea, for some reason I’m finding the detached voice more interesting.
