Posed and posing...

It's been a while since I posted any vintage photos from my collection so today I thought I would post a few featuring some interesting poses. Don't forget to click on the image to see the extreme closeup.

First photo, above: The look on that poor bunny's face says it all. "Thanks a million for picking me up, balancing me on this stool and propping this flag against me. Just want I need. I can just imagine what the other rabbits are going to say."

Here are a few German (I think) soldiers on a cigarette break circa WWI. I have a lot of vintage rabbit photos that come from Germany. Though I am sure they raised rabbits for food they always seemed to take delight in posing with them.

This last photo is marked "Farmer, NY" which is now known as Interlaken, a small town in the Finger Lakes region of NY just outside of Ithaca. The landscape looks pretty ragged behind him. Lucky that he had such a sweet kitty to sit on his lap.
