I tend to learn towards the characters, such as shots of the Beatniks in sunglasses and shorts out at night in North Beach. Or hippies in the park or any of the unique portraits that have traveled through our portals of the past.
And shots that capture the lifestyles of the times, fusing art and architecture inside a martini glass to convey the feel of the era now long past: These are my favorites.
The notion that a photograph is a millisecond capture of time preserved and carried forward to the future makes their importance most relevant, serving as a bookmark in the pages of eternity. Imagine what future generations will say about "selfies."
