I think these ducks were saying “EAT MORE TURKEY”!!!
In the spirit of the holiday season, and since I’m feeling pretty generous today, here are a few of my favorite photos from a long, long, loooong time ago. And they feature the hottest subjects in photography today: a vacuum cleaner and an old shoe. ehpem, Mel – enjoy!
Adorable images, Ken! 🙂
Thanks, Malin. I never intended to post them but I just couldn’t resist.
I’m glad that you couldn’t resist 😉
Strange! And so it captured me. The shoe with these lines in the background… 🙂
Thanks, Ray. I do claim ownership of the shoe but it’s long gone now.
Have a wonderful holiday Ken! I like the boot!
Thanks, John. Happy Thanksgiving to you also!
Ken! It’s like Christmas came on Thanksgiving with those vintage shots.
Thanks, Mel. The vacuum cleaner shots were from the early 1980’s but I still love them. Vacuum cleaners that is. I just bought another one a couple of months ago that you can wear like a backpack!
Hope you had a happy thanksgiving Ken but I hope these fellow are still alive lol..
Thanks, Chantel. Yes, I saw them this morning and they’re fine!
Great shots … really love the shoe!
Thanks, John. Even though I have always worked either in an office or lab, I always wore work shoes. I still wear them when I do yard work.
Especially like the last shoe!
Thanks, Jane. I loved those shoes but eventually they fell apart and I had to put them to sleep.
They were good to you…
The tones in the water are great!. Was that shot with your D600? What do you think of that camera?
Thanks, Chris. Yes, this was from the D600 and it’s the best camera I’ve ever had. I am using only my old Nikon lenses but all the functions of the camera work well. I can’t imagine files from any other camera that would be better than the ones from the 600, especially for a shooter like myself who loves to crop and is used to the Nikon ergonomics. It’s a phenomenal tool.
I am so behind on viewing – what a treat to find your vacuum cleaner shots pop up like this. Not even one of them sucks. Also like the blind shoe – what a sturdy shoe it is.
I had duck pie for dinner last night. Tasty.
Thanks, ehpem. That was a steel toe shoe and it lasted and lasted and I hated to give them up. Duck pie? I’v never heard of it. I’ll have to run that by my research department. Wait a minute! I don’t have a research department. That’s why this is 99% fact free.
IT was one of these ones: if you get tired of duck, you can always go for bunny, I mean rabbit, pie. Or elk (no bambi in an Elk). http://www.patisseriedaniel.com/menu/pies.html
Not sure if they ship transcontinentally …
Well, I missed this, so belated right back at you.
I would rather have been where you were.
That shoe photo is so awesome!. It bring’s a tear to my eye thinking that it is no more.
Thanks, Charles. I appreciate the sentiment but there are some who rejoiced when I got rid or these shoes.
