Recognizing a Veteran: Robert W.Cornell


CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

RECOGNIZING A VETERAN, ROBERT W. CORNELL

NOTE:

If you were a student of Chief Navy Photographer Robert W. Cornell,

I’d like to hear from you.

Please make a note in the comment box following this post.

It’s not surprising that a child follows in his/her father’s footsteps, It’s a twist when the child is separated from his/her father and his family at an early age, having no paternal contact or influence.

This is my situation. My parents were divorced before I began school, and before that his Navy career kept him away from the routine contact we would have had had he had a job where he came home every night.

Thus, it is a twist that when I first picked up a camera in my early teens I used it creatively and with joy. I wrote of our connection earlier: Two Photographers Named Cornell  

Being that this is Memorial Day I’m departing from posting pictures I’ve taken and, as a twist, I am posting a few pictures shot by my father, career Navy man Robert W. Cornell, Chief Naval Photographer.

  1. My parents’ divorced I began school…I never had contact with him again until after I was married.
    He loved books…so do I. We could lose ourselves in books. My mother was a doer…always busy. 🙂
