Wow! He Posted Somthing!

Both shots taken in Gulf Shores, Alabama in 1983. Taken with my old pal, my Canon AE-1 on Kodachrom 64.

No, I do not have two different sized feet. One is my foot and the other is Lovely Wife's (then Lovely Fiance).

I love her dearly despite the fact that her feet are way bigger'n mine. (wink wink nudge nudge)

I thought that fake lighthouse as part of that hotel across the street was SO cool. You'll have to forgive me, I was 20, and hadn't been out of Louisiana much at the time. I know the image is a bit blurry, but I think I did a respectable job of hand-holding that shot at ASA 64 (before they went to ISO). Anyway, the pic brings back lots of good memories for me and that's what counts. I'd never print it big and frame it, but just looking at it reminds me of how moist, warm, and windy that morning was as we headed to the beach to watch the sunrise.

Even a blurry picture is a good one if it brings up good memories and a smile.

I know I suck lately.

Lots going on, and little of it is good in nature. So the first things to fall by the wayside are things like blogging.

I once prided myself in not missing a day on my other, first blog, in over a year.

My, how the great have fallen.

Now I just feel good to get some swill written for the other blog and to dredge up a couple of pics to post on here. And that's not even taking into account the spotty visiting an commenting of late.

Bear with me folks, while I try to get life straightened out a bit, OK?

Hey John, that's ok. Blogging should be fun , not a chore. Take your time. Your know we are there for you.
Photos are memories and when they give us the warm fuzzies they have accomplished their goal.
Hugs and good thoughts

It would be funny to hop around the beach like that and confuse the heck out of whoever ran across the prints :)

Welcome back! I so agree with your comment that even fuzzy photos can bring back good memories. I know I've hung on to a lot of fuzzy photos I've taken, just because they remind of something or some place.

Hope things are going better for you now.

Have no fear, we will remain faithful while you tend to life, which seems to have gotten in the way of blogging. Really, it happens to each and every one of us.

Nice photo of the feet - and it sounds like you still like each other. Isn't that grand!

Anna said...

I was just thinking that! :) Hehehe. Great image of the sand. I cant make fun....I have been up to my posting best lately!

Hey John, it is really good to see you back and around again. Don't worry about blogging you have more important things to think about right now. Like Sue said blogging should be fun. You'll get in the groove again!

Anyway it is good to hear from you again!

Freudian slip, Moi? ;-)

You certainly had you share of misfortunes lately, John. And still are kind enough to visit us and leave thoughtful comments (I like how you assessed Nietzsche ;-))

Hope it will all get better in time...we are all pulling for you!

And stop teasing your "Lovely Wife" ;-)

CG said...

I know what you mean about life throwing you curve balls. I've been down that road lately too. Hopefully, things are looking better for me and I hope for you too.
I like both of these photos. The lighting is great on the lighthouse. Love the greens. Without some pictures we might forget some of the small things in life that made us smile. So, you're right, even a blurry photo is better if it brings a smile to your face.
