    He’s got some pretty nice old photos. There’s one of his grandfather he took that really has some family resemblance.

    This confirms my suspicion that no matter what’s going on at the SyFy office, no matter what they have to deal with or what crises are going down, they keep up with Leonard Nimoy.

    Looks to me like they’re on a spaceship. Really.

    That’s one of the best composed snapshots I’ve ever seen!

    Also, it’s a great example of how a simple picture can tell a story. It’s so of its era too; looks like it could be an illustration for an Asimov story or something.

    Kudos to Nimoy for sharing!

    So, who took the photo?!

    Is it just me, or is there a subtext here about his parent’s roles in Leonard’s life?

    I’m getting this vibe that his Mother was involved while his Father was distant.

    Inquisitive mother, distant father (literally).

    ohhhh i love me some nimoy.
    he, kirk, uhura, (and if there is a 4th star trek singing phenom, i would love to see it), all could have been the beatles, all could have been contenders. what went wrong. what went wrong.
    bilbo, bilbo baggins. he is only 3 ft tall. bilbo, bilbo baggins, the bravest little hobbit of them all.
    r.i.p. star trek beatles–my dream, r.i.p.

    All those tiny black and white TV screens to choose from and Mom wants to watch wrestling on SighFry while Dad walks into the light.

      Just look at it

      It’s sweet. What’s wrong with that? Plus it’s retro-cool, old-fashioned folks walking by some brutalist detail.

        I wrote ‘so’ not ‘so?’, signifying the existential calmness that overcame me in looking at that picture and reading the ascetic text and explanation, leading to a complete neglect of any impulse to ask for underlying sense, or content. I had hoped to open up a zen-garden like thread composed of well-put, up-to-5 character words set with care yet emanating lightness…
        like so:





        —… and so on. but the anon-comment was retrofitted in, and then came the askers and ‘just look at it’ters. So.

    it’s hard to tell if he is telling the truth when her ears are covered by her hair.

    LA? But I thought he grew up three blocks from here…

    Something about the general look of the man in the background, but if the story hadn’t accompanied the pic I’d have sworn that was Leonard Nimoy.

  23. CatPie says:

    I think it’s wonderful. I’ll bet he cropped it from a larger, less well-composed photo.

    If this post breeds with this one, we could end up with this.

    It’s a rare thing where celebrities who have moved beyond their original star role remain interesting and productive people that still hold on to a spotlight not necessarily for their original fame, but for their now realized talents and passions.

    I’m not even a Spock fan, but Leonard Nemoy is awesome.
