Thursday

Inspired title, say what? Another warm and muggy morning and I've waited until the last possible moment to get Donna's photo challenge done. Well except for this. I can't show you this.


See what I mean? Poor man was in for lunch and it was another warm, muggy day. Still he was a good sport willing to pose for my experiments. This one was following the suggestion of taking a photo from above. I don't think that the subject is supposed to follow the camera, but we'll see how it goes. I want him to pretend to read something as that's the way I see him so often, but he wants to see what I'm doing. I may have to resort to stealing someone else's stuff like this photo of three fisherman that my niece sent me.


That's a great picture of all four of them!


  This was the cryptic message on the back. I'd have been worried, but I know that she is safely home in New York City. Note the difference in terms...she says "cabin;" I say "cottage."

Well I was going to say more, but I'm running out of time. I'll save it for Saturday or something.

Have the muggies returned in your corner?

  3. Looks like you're going to have to creep John to get the shot you want. :-) It's turned cool here, 50F this morning walking the pooch but I'm happy as hot and humid makes one feel like a zombie.
    See you at Donna's for the challenge.

  4. I think that photo of John is a great one for Donna's challenge! I think that his personality shines through your lens...and isn't that what a portrait is all about? Maybe I am just not sure about the difference in a "portrait" and simply a great photo of one person. I don't think I'm ready for this challenge yet!

    It is muggy and rainy here...although not as hot as earlier in the week so that's good.

  5. We have a rainy evening and the next morning we have fog until about 10am. A little muggy but not too bad. I like the smile on John's face :-)

  6. Love the picture of John. Such a nice guy! It has been kind of muggy here too which we don't usually ever get much in So. California so I guess I shouldn't complain, but I definitely DON'T like it. Will be glad when this little spell is over. Enjoy your day Vee!

  11. What a great picture of John! He has the kindest, happiest face. Tonight is suppose to be one of possibly severe storms here and I think he said tomorrow, too. Mugginess just seems to go along with that. Such a great picture of the fisherman (and fish!). So colorful.

  13. Love that photo of John! The fishermen with the fish is a fun shot! Oh the muggies, we are hoping to avoid them here in jolly old...but there's a strong possibility we'll get some the next few days. Today sunshine, very clear skies for now and a cool breeze in the shade.

  14. My FB update for yesterday ... 'It's stinkin' hot' ... the muggies were here yesterday and gone today! Huzzah! Must have been that spectacular series of thunderbumpers we had last night!

  17. That is a great photo of John. I have the hardest time typing a comment, Vee. I don't know what it is on certain blogs. Anyhoo, I heard Kings Landing sustained bad damage from Hurricane Arthur and is closed indefinitely. :-(. xo

  18. "cabin;" and "cottage." . . . . . ha ha

  19. Great photo of John, was he smiling because he was about to be served lunch or was this smile a "thank you" for lunch.
    Enjoy your day.
    Hugs,
    Sue

  20. Your husband pretends to read? That's OK, I pretend to know what I'm doing. A lot. *giggle*
    It's VERY hot and muggy in SE Georgia. Frizzy hair is the norm. I'd put in a pool but the EPA may fine me for not getting a permit. [That's true, by the way. Wish it was only a joke.] ~:)

  21. I love the title of this post! There are times I have no idea what to title a post. I know some bloggers who don't use titles but then I'd have a hard time finding former ones I need to revisit.

  22. What a nice big smile John has. : ) I just put then name of the day on too when I can't think of a title.
    Nice cool weather here yet. I'm loving this summer.

  23. Ah, and nice chattery post. John looks well and happy! Glad your niece was safe during the hurricane! We are humid but the temps are a bit cooler than earlier in the week so it doesn't feel too bad.

  24. Vee, You get my sympathy on the muggies. I hate high humidity. It drains my energy. Those pictures are pretty neat. I truly like the old fishermen. Blessings for a cool down. xoxo,Susie

  25. What a sweetie to pose for you! Mine is outside painting the porch right now and he doesn't look too pretty with sweat dripping! Super shot of the fishermen- and it's muggies here alright!

  26. Love the photo of John--kind eyes, sweet smile--it is apparent that he loves the photographer! Vee, thank you for the uplifting words you posted at my blog this morning. I enjoy your beautiful blog and the way your personality shines through your writing. Lovely.

  27. I love your every post but ESPECIALLY one when I get to see your John!! OR even better - HEAR him!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think this just might be the biggest smile I've seen on John. What are you serving for lunch? Must have been one of his favorites or perhaps it was the lovely lady doing the serving that elicited that charming smile.

  29. Your John has a lot of fans in blog land I can see (read). What a good sport to pose for you. And that's a great picture of the fishermen. I'm anxious to see your portraits. And yes I'm feeling back to "normal" what ever that is these days. And no shopping in Germany. :-( No time!

  30. Darn. I posted and then it vanished. My fault I'm sure. I'm trying to reconnect and see if I can get back to blogging - time will tell. I like this picture of John - he's so kind and friendly and it shows in his laugh lines! Tell him Hi for us. And I want to tell you THANK YOU for all your prayers and encouragement during this sorrowful time in my life. Sending big hugs your way, friend!!!

  31. Love the photo of the fishermen. Well, John's too, of course! It is still 27°C (84F) over her at 10:30 pm...and supposed to be warmer the next few days.

  32. Wait. What? The muggies can leave? I can say without fear of contradiction that the muggies never, ever, leave southeast Georgia. They are a permanent fixture. Right now, they are at their most intense, too.

    LOVED the picture of your John looking up like that.
    Hope you are having a nice anniversary week.

  33. John's smile is so cute. Glad to hear/see your niece is safely home after the hurricane. Muggies are rare here, but things are heating up pleasantly.

  34. That's a great photo of John's cheeky smile. The one of the 3 fishermen and the fish is really super!! I'm glad your niece got to the lake and back home safely. I'm sure the lake did look like the ocean that day. It was wild!

  35. That is an awesome photo of John! Love his smile! The perspective worked great. There is no rule about the subject not looking at the camera. Of course, it is essential for eye contact in a formal portrait. I had to laugh about the fish and fisherman photo.
