#TBT to Whatever Exactly Was Happening in These Photos…
So, our TBT blogs are usually filled with photos that make all of us remember our days at camp. Photos of rock shows, painting classes, campers throwing pots and taking photos, the carnival, campfires, bunks taking a tour on the first day of camp… We can see ourselves in the photos, whether we are in them or not, because so many things at Appel Farm haven’t changed since way back in 1960. Sure, the buildings are newer, the jeans are skinnier, and we have some new murals, but everything in the photos is at least easy to understand!
Today’s blog is different. We have no idea what’s happening in any of these photos, and we don’t think most of you will either.
It’s ok, though. Maybe, because we all love Appel Farm and the wildly creative, loving, fun community we create each summer, you will give each photo the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you’ll assume whatever exactly was happening in each photo is totally Appel Farm, and so it’s ok. Maybe you’ll create your own back stories for each photo, and publish them as short play or an interpretive dance or some rad story art. Maybe one of the photos will remind of the one thing at camp you’ll never forget, and you’ll reach out to your long lost camp friends and remind them that you love them. (We hope these photos will make you think, or feel, or connect, or create. We really do.)
While you figure that out, here is our best guess at whatever exactly was happening in these photos:
