While schleping through my archives, I came across a few pictures that I felt were particularly pertinent to my blog.
I started my little section of the blogosphere while dh was deployed to the Middle East. The date on my first batch of posts is May 9, 2006. Dh left early in the morning the day before. Since then, I've captured lots of bits and pieces of my life in here.
Among those pieces, are a scattered bunch of photographs.
Heartbreak isn't a particularly moving photo in general, but the circumstances surrounding it were. That's also my very first entry.
We have photos that randomly capture the beauty and oddity that is my everday life. A coffin at a pawn shop? WTF?
The absurdity is unending, especially when you have children. And it's always my first instinct to grab for the camera.
I have an odd sense of humor and a camera phone. Good combination or bad? You be the judge.
I also have good friends, a screwy family and photoshop.
In this blog, there is exactly one photo posted wherein you can see my face.
When life hands you lemons, throw them back and demand chocolate. And when life gives you ice, grab a camera and take pictures.
I haven't done any Thursday Thirteens in a while, but this was one I wanted to write about (and photograph) for a long time. Glad I got the chance.
Here's another TT that's just completely frivilous, but contains my very favorite cats in all the world (not counting the ones that live in our home).
Speaking of our cats, I've posted photos of them which still crack me up.
Sometimes, the pictures are proof that I really do care about my audience and am constantly thinking of them. There's a local bank with a sign that I simply must photograph for you. I haven't yet (I'm always the one driving when I pass it), but the sign reads, "For personal service, see Chastity Den." Every time I drive by, I think, "I need to get a picture of that for the blog." It cracks me up.
And thus concludes our quick trip through the blog in pictures. Hope you enjoyed it. If not, I'll be back with more in the not-too-distant future. When you refuse to post pictures of yourself or your immediate family, it makes it kind of tricky, but thus far, I've managed. I'll make more of an effort in the future, though.
