Surprising Myself

I suppose that I’m on a journey of self discovery. The timing is right because I just had a birthday on Monday. One more year and I’ll officially be old. I guess the universe is with me because I found some great and ancient archives.

As you already may know I always carry a camera so I photographed almost anything and everything. Some were “extras” from assignments. Some were just because. This is little portfolio number one. There’s more. A lot more.

So, that’s that. Since WordPress took away captioning, the captions are at the bottom of the pictures.

Top picture. I happened to be visiting my friends Brian and Mary Ellen in Payson, Arizona, when she told him that she was pregnant. Later in life, they got divorced.

Top left. I’ve long made pictures I see that are part of a bigger scene. I liked this guy’s rings.

Top right. A high school’s marching band arrives for a Mardi Gras parade. Check out how one of them greeted me.

Middle right. Horse love at a show.

Bottom left. Ballerinas help each other at rehearsal.

Bottom right. My mom in the morning. I just bought my first 35mm SLR camera and I took pictures of everything. This picture is located on the the very first roll of black and white film I ever exposed.

Now you know. Lucky you.
