By The Pool



I took these about five years ago, before we even had our Sony digital camera. These were taken on Fuji 100 print film.

The top photo is a 3ft rubber alligator that belonged to Number Two Daughter. In the mid 90s when I was in college (again) at Louisiana Tech, we were able to take a few days and go on vacation to Panama City Beach, Florida. This was the "big" souvenir that Number Two Daughter chose. We went to every tourist shop in the whole area and she ended up with this. She's like me in that regard. She agonizes and stews and does trade studies and totally stresses before buying anything. She and her friends would play with it in our pool.

The bottom one was also taken beside the pool, you can see decorative tile laid into the surface there, and the bright colors on the left are a stack of air mattresses for relaxing in the pool.

These were taken with a Nikon N90s and a sweet, 50mm f1.4 lens I had at the time.

Wow! I need shades for the bottom photo ;-))) Fuji print film always was color rich...

Loved your sunset pics and saw the "angry" Atlantic - I know what you mean about the Gulf now ;-)

(BTW - I think I recognize the motel from the Gulf Shores, AL picture, where we stayed one season! See that car parked on the upper ramp? One night, a surge swept 5 cars from there into the ocean...)

The first one is funny. I like the colors on the 2nd photo. I had a Nikon at one time too and really liked it.

I think the alligator would look good as a B&W.
