Happy You Know What


Yup, it's Thursday and I thought that I'd post an old photo of myself that I found in the small suitcase of photos from long ago. And yes, I'm half... um...well... I'm in a state of partial dress. Oh, well, whatever. Guess it's technically an HNT photo, as some folks were egging me on to do. To me, it's more a tribute to the long, hot, uninhibited days of summers past.

I used an old photo because it's what I had. I had something different and current in mind, but what I wanted to shoot was a bit complicated to do by myself. Maybe some other time. As a sort of a side note, this was taken before I started climbing, so I'm in a bit better shape now. Funny, that's not how it's supposed to work, is it?

    Nothing beats wading in a stream on a really hot day.

    Thanks! I thought that it was an appropriate photo given the hot summer weather. :)

    Nope, no crawfish. A friend and I were driving aimlessly through the Ohio countryside with a basket of strawberries, a camera, no agenda, and apparently way too much clothing on. ;)

  9. Cool photo! There's a stream nearby that I like to go to, and a little way down the path there's a sign warning hikers that the area beyond is clothing optional. I love that place...

    I've always been envious of men because they could do this. Then again, I don't know if all of them should be allowed to because some of them have much bigger boobs than I do! ;)

    I hope that this little taste of summer might ease any mid-winter blahs! This is where we can help each other out. ;)

  12. Great shot! I have a full frontal picture of me riding a horse in jeans and a full length Lakota headdress. (I had VERY long hair.)

    That sounds like a great shot! I imagine that the long hair came in rather handy, too. It's such a great feeling to doff one's top every now and then. ;)

  14. Terrific photo--so relaxed and with it.

    I'm in better shape now than in my youth, but I'd still kill to look like you in in this "less fit" incarnation.

    I'm trying to imagine the photo you wanted to shoot. It's kind of like a game of Twister in my head.

    Gee, thanks! It was really hot that day and shirt free seemed to be the best option. ;)

    I've read about what you do for exercise and you're in way better cardio shape than me. I'm envious!

    As for the photos, no twisting involved, just focusing! Serves me right for not using a simple point-and-shoot. I'm going to try to get to those soon.
