Here’s an old photo of ‘Fishtown’, Leland, Michigan. I sure wish I could go back in time and throw a little more background out of focus (if hindsight is 20/20 this is one time it wouldn’t hurt to be a bit blurrier). Oh well. Have a great weekend, everyone!

My strict adherence to photo prompts is usually sketchy. At best. I guess I just don’t like to take these challenges so literally all the time.
Originally there were several people working their way down to the water here, but I airbrushed all but one of ’em into oblivion. It just seems like a solitary figure works better in this one. To me, anyway. I think.

Here’s a tower… deal. Since I’m on an Alton kick. It’s printed a bit flat… someday I’ll probably scan the negative and pump up the contrast in a few spots, but for now, I’m kinda digging all the similar mid-tones. I think.
Prince: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair…”
Rapunzel: “Not a chance, dude. Do you know how long it takes me to condition all this stuff? Get a friggin’ rope. Then we can talk.”

I apologize for how slow it’s been around here lately… things have been CrAzY! Hopefully calm will return shortly. Although Annabelle and I hope to do a bit of traveling in a week or two to visit my family and unwind a bit. And after we return I may pull my posts back to a couple per week (until I can figure a few things out, anyway). I do plan on visiting everyone as often as possible, though… because you ladies and gents are the best. And that’s just how I slowly roll.
Thanks very much for all the kind comments, everyone – did I mention you’re the best?!

These boots were made for walking, but this ramp sure wasn’t made for parking.
Walter Sobchak: “Who’s got a f****n’ million f****n’ dollars sittin’ in the trunk of our car?” The Dude: “Our car, Walter?” Walter Sobchak: “And whadda they got? My dirty undies… My f*****g whites…” Walter Sobchak: “Say, dude. Where is your car?” Donny: “Who’s got your undies, Walter?” Walter Sobchak: “Where’s your car, dude?” The Dude: “You don’t know, Walter?” Walter Sobchak: [clears throat] “It was parked in a handicapped zone, perhaps they towed it.” The Dude: “You f*****g know its been stolen.” Walter Sobchak: “Well, certainly that’s a possibility, Dude.”
