Deck Shoes / Anchor



One blistering-hot morning last summer, I wandered around a local marina. These were a couple of pictures from that day that I liked.

Nothing special, just liked them.

When Lovely Wife first saw the one of the deck shoes in the boat she remarked that it looked like the type of photograph her Father liked to take. It was a great compliment to me. He had a much better eye toward "the human touch" than I do. It's definitely the kind of thing he noticed, little bits of people, even if there were no people in the photograph.

My Father In Law passed away in 1996. I have all of his 35mm slides, and will have to scan a few and put them on here from time to time. He was a good man, and a good photographer.

There really is nothing like a worn in, comfy pair of deck shoes.....

This is my kind of picture too. I like how you put it. Bits of people without the people in the picture.

Well I came to thank you for your recent visits. I have not been able to get around like I should but I got here today.

And I am glad that I came.

I enjoyed your photography and I also enjoyed reading the things you had to say, about your father-in-law.

Nice.

I didn't do much today but...

I did write about how people used to wear long underwear over winter or until we began to stink. You can find the link at the bottom of the post today.
