    some photos from today

    My Nikon was 'down' for a few days... but found the battery charger, so I got some pics done... Just a few impressions of my Grandfather's sense of humor and what was/is important to him.






    Those were his United Seaman's Service insignia, which was where he spent WWII, making sure the materials got overseas to support the allies.

    A tray which my grandmother decoupaged for him, he was a Herpitologist.


    and a newspaper clipping which I'm going to turn into a scroll saw piece:

    oh, and one more... a 'catch and release' wall mount:

    I like the fish. Cut outs for pictures, it could be another cool scrollsaw project. The paneling, same as what my grandparent's had in their home.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    The photo of the wall lamp really draws me. There is a lot of emotion there. It is amazing what a good photographer can do with an ordinary object.

    Does this lamp have a special significance or did it just appeal to you as a photographer?

    I assume you took a picture of the fish for the (fishname).

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    I like the sign. I admire your grandfather's sense of humor.

    that's just about the only panelling in the entire house. I'm thinking of scrolling that fish actually... but I don't want to 'ruin' it as it sits. so, thinking of taking it to fedex office for a copy so I can then scroll the copy out of a piece of plywood.

    Jim, the light was simply something that caught my eye. I've had that plus a twin on in the room and liked the glow... so I shot it. No other significance.


    Vaughn, me too!

    Rich, glad you liked them!
