I really like "Jeep Peep." We have a 91 Sahara which has filtered down to our daughter in Chula Vista.
I was a junior in high school which they first showed this Chev.
The Chevrolet finally got a V-8 that year. In those days the new car showing was a big social event on the calendar. They kept the cars under
wraps until that day. My desire for a new Chevrolet could not be measured
in standard units.
Vendors of splendors!
I am shooting with a canon 5D Mark III with a 400 mm attachment which I have hot rodded for extra reach.
I've attended nearly all of the Oakdale parades in the last half century. Still dig them. As a photographer nearing my apotheosis, I am a notice. I notice
more things, everything, because of my focus.
Oh Lord, Mr. Ford. Look what you've done.
Oakdale has changed but there are still plenty of century old elegant houses. Most of that is gone in Modesto.
Little kids have really changed. Long hair. Beautiful footware.
Writing on their chest! I always have to read the kids. I hope they can read all of that stuff and comprehend.
A man's and a woman's best friend. Never had a dog turn on me. They just thrive on affection. Don't we all!
Thanks to the spectators.
You can't have a successful parade without lots of spectators and Oakdale always gets them. Spectators! I love you! Would like to put that on my t-shirt.
As a photographer, I can't really wear a bill. Or any of those sparkling spectacles.
I'd be thrilled to make your family portraits.
Thank you for wearing that mint green top. Thanks for being there.
Keep a firm grip on your daughter; she will be a teenager real soon.
At least you aren't freezing your keester this year.
Folding canvas parade chairs. A great innovation.
THANK YOU, FELLOW for shaving. There are just too many non-shavers in my semi-humble opinion.
You have so many conveniences that my generation was deprived of.
They call it that because you are a prisoner to it. I don't have one of those things. I am out of touch. I admit it and like it.
Maybe, they are.
Come closer. What a beautiful pose.
You can down load any or all of my photographs. I have about 45,000 images on this very attractive site. Everything is free. I do engagement parties, weddings, and just about everything for free and freely.
Every mudercyclist needs to have their kind of training and respect for speed and the crowded roads.
Have a nice day.
Did you see me at the other end of the glass?
Caps are a capital idea for girls with manes like this one.
Get that literature out there.
A great time to be young.
Everyone can be a cowboy on this day.
Even a black flower looks great on her.
I'll bet she lives to that that pink fedora.
Actually, I was a teacher and it is really nice to re-live those days.
Always wear your seat belt, especially when you are in a car.
Some women have such beautiful and tantalizing laughs. But are they laughing at me. Oh, well, it would be worth it.
Why so many shots!
Always looking for that winning angle.
I've had lots of dogs or did they have me.
So many big dogs.
Where is your pink hat?
Donuts and parades.
The good things in life.
I would have said that my photography is a passion so that my fee can be really low.
And she already has pierced ears. I could never go through that, I am squeamish. I have to steady myself just for the flue shot.
I am a Canon shooter. Long lenses really make great portraits.
I only use the software that came with my camera and with my computer.
Really puts the shine on your hair.
Next, she will be wearing Google Glass or the next big thing.
Horizontal stripes are only an occasional problem for a photoggy.
Really a rich visual treat for a camera.
I graduated from high school in 1957. Was in Vietnam from Christmas of 1959 until Valentine's Day in 1962. Two tours back-to-back. When I returned I had been out of the United States for 10% of my whole life. I graduated from California State University, Stanislaus, and even stuck around for an MA. The college was still an adolescent. Needless to say, it is a mighty university, now.
Hey, where is the the Starbucks?
Now, I remember next to "I love Paris." I love Starbucks.
Who could ask for more!
Spangles on her shirt.
