My life in words and pictures

Well, mainly pictures.

Welcome to Breakfast in America

My photo journal is an eclectic mix of things; there’s no guiding theme or topic. It is whatever happens to catch my attention, what I’ve been thinking, doing, and whatever my current obsessions are. At the moment, they are clearing some of the backlog on my ‘honey-do’ list, backpacking, hammock camping, and, I’m always, taking pictures.

    August 11, 2007. The day we first met in person. And just over a month after we realized we’d get married.

    My arrival at Springfield is just a blur. I remember the approach to the airport, taxiing and then a complete blank until I got to the security gate. I stepped through and couldn’t see where to pick up my bags. I asked a security guard, and as I stepped away I saw someone running towards me. Ginger nearly knocked me over. I guess we just meant to have a hug and say hello, but the hug and tears quickly turned into a kiss, and within a few seconds of meeting I think we both knew that this was it.

    We went and sat and stared at each other, held hands, and caught up on some more kissing while waiting for my bags to clear. Then to the car, a quick bite to eat, and on with the first day of our life together.

    200 days deserves a bit of a song and a dance.

    It is a shame that because of poor counting this was actually day 202. Oh well, my actual Day 200 picture was probably more appropriate.

    I was not invited to my oldest son’s graduation. I volunteered to help with Graduation at work. I thought it would distract me from thinking about my son’s graduation. No, it didn’t. It was a particularly painful time for me.

    I was laying on the couch chatting to my best friend on the ‘phone when I noticed the light through the blinds and instantly had the idea for this shot.

    A couple of bungled pictures while they waited on the line, and this is the final result.
