Excuse me, may I please photograph your ink?
I know it’s generational, I have no ink. But I was intrigued when I saw this woman’s back.
Perhaps my asking this wedding guest if I might photograph her ink was bold, but it caught my eye. She said it would be okay. The Disney Villains.
Did you know they’re on stamps at the USPS, too?
My friend J sometimes asks people at cocktail parties “If you HAD to get a tattoo, what design would you choose?” and some respond, “Oh my NO I would never….” but she says, “if you had to.” What meaningful symbol would you select? Second question is “Where on your body would you have it inked?”
To tattoo or not to tattoo? There is some intricate ink out there. And there are even knitting tattoos. Yep! Who knew?
I don’t have the tattoo artist credit but will add when I get it.

Anise or vanilla? They are delicate and delicious.
Steve photographed me with Franco Harris who was gracious to all his fans.

I’m fascinated by trash. Litter, too. Funny thing is, I find it difficult to throw things away. Here are previously featured found garbage photos. I even did a Garbology post. “the study of a community or culture by analyzing its waste.”
Here’s a sample of my photos of cat trees, toilets, chairs, aquarium, couches, champagne bottles, old televisions.
Come January we’ll be longing for these tomatoes. The taste of summer.
My friend R stopped by the other evening and shared these fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes. Just picked!
Olive oil, chunky chopped onions and a couple of garlic cloves. Threw in the remaining cherry tomatoes (we’d been popping them in our mouths, unadorned)
Black beans and rice. Mmmmmmmm.
Neville Island. Shot Saturday during the retirement party at a friend’s home along the Ohio River.
Maybe you saw yesterday’s night photography of the barges and tugboats. Those were taken handheld with Canon 24-70 L series lens. The reflection of the lights on the dark river at night are more dramatic but the daylight shots taken with the Canon 70-200 L series let you see the details and appreciate the size of the vessels. They move at a fast clip.
NIghtfall. The bonfire.
The retirement party at our friend’s home on Neville Island began in early afternoon but the barges and tugs went by into the night. Both directions!
Lots of drama to watch. Multiple freight trains on the opposite bank blew their train whistles.
See the powerful blue light the Captain was shining down river to illuminate a buoy in the middle of the river? Neville Island Bridge is in the background.
Centerpieces with tiny white lights and fishing accessories glowed like lanterns.
Here you can see the dark barges being pushed by the tug as they approach the bridge.
The bonfire kept us warm and warded off the increasing damp chill as the sun disappeared. Skipping the photo my friend took of me devouring a gooey s’more.
Happy Retirement, Sy
My granddaughter Anna texted, “Doesn’t look too safe” with these three photos she took on Friday.
You might remember Anna’s guest blog of pick up full of mannequin legs and another of a driver brushing his teeth.
I can see her taking the photo in the side mirror reflection.
Thanks for being the guest blogger today.
