Somewhere Far Far Away

There is something about looking at photographs
reading hearing details of the intimate stage 
that was the Kennedy White House.
I am drawn, fascinated, in a haunting kind of way.
Now, Historian Richard Reeves,  brings us a new book,

"Fifty years ago, John F. Kennedy was elected the youngest president of the United States, moving his work and his family to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. And alongside him was Cecil W. Stoughton, the first official White House photographer, who accompanied the First Family everywhere—blending in the background, snapping candid photographs, and, in the process, amassing a collection of rare, intimate glimpses of the family at ease. " via Vanity Fair

So cheers to the Royals at Buckingham Palace and 
the upcoming nuptials, for now though,
I will relish the past and enjoy our Camelot that was.
