Sometimes I take images of photos of events where I not only didn’t take the original photograph, but I didn’t even attend. This is one of those cases.
I think her friend Chrissy took this photo.
Ultimately, even though they aren’t near as important to me as photos of more personal moments in our lives (our honeymoon, for example), I still like tracing her steps, and I still want to post these images before I end this blog.
Years from now, I don’t want to look back and wish I had taken more photos while this blog was active. I just want to find all the random images I hadn’t taken or posted over the past year and a half, and make sure I get them before I let this all go.
It’s like I’m tying up loose ends.
I believe this place was called Bricks & Mortar in the original photo, as well, even though the wine racks had obviously been replaced and looks like it could be different ownership.
I prefer images of just Beth, so I tried one where I cropped most of me out. This is from the same photo as the post from a few days ago.
I’ve mentioned before that I often print several croppings of photos so I can make choices when I’m at a location. Often I just take photos of each cropping. That’s the case here, of course.
Again, see previous posts for an explanation.
This is the same place as yesterday (see previous post), but of just me and Beth.
I took photos in this restaurant even though the place had change ownership and been remodeled. It’s now called the Special, but was Amarillo Barbecue when the original photo was taken.
That’s Beth’s friends, Chrissy and Peter, across the table from us. She worked with them at the Union Pacific Railroad.
It’s something of a goal of mine to make sure I find any images that did not get posted before, and get them on this blog before I bring this to an end.
Hopefully, I can get all of this done before the end of the year, but I am so concerned about missing any that I am going through every folder I can find on my desktop, and it’s amazing how many I’ve found. This series is from long ago, and possibly I didn’t post this because I thought she might not like it as much. I don’t know. It was probably just an oversight.
Regardless, I want to get them all uploaded. I don’t want to post any more images next year. I want to feel I’ve completed this, satisfied and without regrets.
And, one final one of these. Obviously I don’t take a lot of these, but I still kind of like them.
Like the one from yesterday, I never posted this.
I took a handful of these with the little busts, but I think I only posted one of these when I was posting all the images from the Chicago Art Institute.
Here it is now. I have a few others I might post over the next few days.
