EVERYONE IS TENSE IN THIS SMALL FAMILY EXCEPT THE DOG

This cabinet card features a family portrait of what appears to be a very tense family. Dad's facial expression indicates that he is quite angry. At the very least he seems very stern and is the type of guy you don't want to provoke. Perhaps he is steamed about having to get dressed up and spend money for a photograph that he views as frivolous. Mom is not dealing with the situation. She is looking down toward the floor but she has closed her eyes. It is as if she wants the whole situation to go away. The couple's son is adorable and smartly dressed in a sailor style outfit. He is displaying some of his dad's intensity and looks as if he wishes the photographic session would come to a quick end. The only one in this portrait that seems happy is the family dog. This cute canine is bright eyed and flashing a doggy smile. The individuals in this photograph as well as the photographer are unidentified. This particular photograph is one of those images that tells an interesting story but it is up to the observer to hypothesize the details of the story. Perhaps some Cabinet Card Gallery visitors will comment about their perceptions concerning this emotionally provocative photograph.
