A story from 2001

I was tagged for this by Kirigalpoththa. Go check out his gorgeous photos of beautiful Sri Lanka!

Here's what you do:

1. Open your 1st Photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo and the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 or more people.

The above lovely, flattering (not) photo of me was taken on Boxing Day 2001, right after we got our very first digital camera. My contact lenses must have been bothering me, because I never wear my glasses, except to find my way to and from bed.

We were living in Nova Scotia when this was taken, having moved there in September 1998. My friend gave me the sweater I'm wearing (as a Christmas gift the day before) but you can't see the colourful parts, just the grey at the top. My hair was longer and naturally wavy!

I was leaving over the back of our futon, which had to go to the great futon graveyard in the sky after my cat Zoë (RIP) peed on it!

The photographer of the above masterwork was my very own husband, the Evil Gordini.

Not a very exciting story, but there you are. I do love digital cameras. Nothing has improved my photography more than the advent of digicams, simply because I take SO MANY photos that one is sure to turn out okay, and of course I can crop them and make adjustments in Photoshop.

Now it's your turn. I tag:

1. Ronna
2. Jams
3. Paula
4. Texas Trailer Park Trash
5. Surani

And anyone else who wants to give it a go!


  1. Thanks Knatolee I'll do it tomorrow. It's a nice photo

  2. Lookityou with the long hair!

  3. That's "medium" hair! I've had it down past my shoulders, although that was about 15 years ago. It goes up, it goes down, it goes in between. :)

  4. I haven't played tag for a long, long time and this game is fun and interesting...meeting a lot of new bloggers. Thanks Natalie!

    Okay, tag accepted and completed! "Prom Night 1965". Oy...

  6. Why would I come to think of Yoda?
    "When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not."

  7. You have naturally curly hair?! I'm SO jealous. I gave up having to pay to make my hair curly. It was too much of a struggle, but yours is so beautiful. And it's natural!

  8. Yoda I am!

    Yes, Genny, actually it's more wavy than curly as it gets longer. I've had it sort of short and straight for a while now but I am in the process of changing that a little. I hated it growing up in the 70s, when all the girls had long, perfectly straight hair! :)

  9. Hi Knatolee I've finally done this meme. Sorry for the delay


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
