A WHOOP AND A HOLLER FOR PATTI ! .. SLAP YOUR KNEE !

CAPTAIN .. ALWAYS!

WITH NO EXCEPTIONS!

HAVE YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU!  PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES WILL APPEAR!

From Field of Dreams .. IF you build it .. THEY WILL COME!

This morning .. I decided that .. “I do not need to take my camera with me to breakfast at AL BAIQ.  I think I will leave it in my room here at the Raahat Inn.”

So out and off I trotted to breakfast WITH my camera. FOR BY THIS TIME SANITY HAD RETURNED TO ME!

I am NOT yet tired of my wonderful Masala Omelettes at AL BAIQ!

I finished my breakfast and even though I was running just-a-tad-late I thought .. “I think that I do have time to make it back to my room to call Patti at 9AM”.  9AM on any day here in India is 7:30PM the previous day on Patti’s time.

I did NOT make my call to Patti ‘on-time’ BECAUSE a Photo Opportunity suddenly appeared!  One I could NOT pass up!

Isn’t the below family .. Dad did not join in .. just precious! A Photo Opportunity huh? First a photo of Mom and her eldest son. DO you all see the staff at AL BAIQ in the far background intently looking at us?

NOW THE REST OF THE STORY!  Rest In Peace Mr. Paul Harvey!

What I wanted to photograph .. what I saw that made me want a photo .. The Photo Opportunity .. are NOT the above photos!  The above photos were the GATEWAY to THE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY!

What I wanted to photograph .. was the BACK OF THE ELDER SON’S SHIRT!

FAMILY 005

Patti and I have a very good and close friend in Anchorage named .. Terry Farrell! When I saw the back of the boys shirt I exclaimed to myself .. “I must shoot a photo of his shirt!”

Well Patti?  Well My Dear One?  Did the above photo here in Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu in India ..

MAKE YOU WHOOP AND HOLLER!

Much Love .. Cap
