More Photos

Hi everyone. I'm not feeling very well today, and have missed most of my day's work sleeping. It happens. One of my readers asked me to post more pictures, and I listened. Pictures truly are the universal language, and I hope those who read my blog - English speaking and not, will enjoy them. So... here are a few more of Pointer Island Lightstation.

These were all taken in the summer of 1975 by one of my younger sisters, Amy. This first one is looking South-Southeast from the helicopter pad. This next one is also from the helicopter pad, but my sister moved about thirty feet to the right.These last two shots are taken from around the corner of the big house at the end of the helicopter ramp and landing (in the centre of the above photo). The two photos, below, are mirror images of each other. The railing, in the left foreground of the bottom shot, is the same railing in the bottom-centre of the top shot (where the white gate is standing open). Also, in both photos, you can see the garden netting over my Mother's garden boxes.

Hey Davis, thanks for finding my blog and posting! It's nice to *meet* other LDS writers and artists. Your photography is fabulous! Lighthouses are sooo cool! Good luck on your book! (btw--I posted a response to your comment on my blog.)

This photos are flawless! I enjoy photos- especially B&W ones. Amy did a great job- pass that on to her if you can.

I just had to add a jab...hehe...I wasn't even born yet when these photos were taken! HA! Though- I will say I was born a couple months later...but that's not the point. I want to make you feel OLD, Davis. hehehehehe {I can be evil I know!}

I enjoyed all your coments - well maybe not Autumn's. Hmmm.... I may be old, but I have no gray hairs to prove it. (Sadly, I don't have very much hair to go gray with.) Of course, being raised in a super-humidity-saturated environment means that I don't have many wrinkles either. That is lucky, cuz I'm not vain enough to care that much - but I do like it. It is fun to have people I meet guess my age. Some of them put me 15 years younger than my nearly 48 years. I don't feel all that old (unless you ask my back at the end of a long day), but I guess aging is just part of life. Aging gracefully is often an option, but not mandatory. I am humoured by many who go kicking and screaming into their futures. Fighting the inevitable with whatever fountain of youth looks promising and/or handy. I sometimes wonder if I will radically alter my song in a few more years, but for now... I'm going snowshoeing in Waterton Park - while I'm still young enough to buckle the bindings. I'll post photos of my adventure - probably tonight or tomorrow.
And one last bit of advice: "If you can't remain young, at least have a good time getting old!"

Un saludo.

HAHAHAHA!

You're too funny, Davis!

Hey- I'm 32 and have lots and lots of grey hair...so I color it. Seriously- I have a ton. It makes me feel old. I like the idea of moving to a richly humid place in order to stay wrinkle-free. hehe Phoenix is NOT like where you live.

I hope you had fun Snowshoeing...I think it's great you're so active in exciting sports. I look forward to seeing your photos of the adventure.
