Sunday stills: Black and white


I left my only living pair of aviators on the hot as a branding iron hay wagon in the sun. Bad idea to sit on that thing on a hot day my butt thinks.

Prom is such a fun time of year. I loved my prom dress. It was bright and unusual with all sorts of swirling colours and gorgeous hand beading. It was sure an eye catcher when everyone seen it they asked where on earth I got it. Unfortunately you all here do not get to see the images. They were on film and also hold some bittersweet memories with the people in the pictures next to me. I made the mistake of not getting an image of just me.

When my friend Sarah told me she was going to prom and wanted pictures taken I jumped at the opportunity. Shes very photogenic with her contagious smile and has been in my other Sunday stills challenges like Pets and several other photo's I have not posted here.
Her and her boyfriend Josh wandered over to the John R Park homestead for some fun pictures. They had to deal with me bossing them around telling them where to hold their hands or move left or right to avoid shadows for the posed pictures.

Then this happens.
Hah. Sarah screamed, her dress flew up because we were right on the lake at the homestead and it was windy.
Don't worry I normally scream when someone picks me up suddenly too. No, I did not just say that. Sydney does not scream like a little girl...unless theres a mr.legs crawling nearby.I got quite the few good pictures for them so they can develop them. I think everyone should have memories of their senior prom. I have my dress still, now I just need to find a place to wear it again. I mean it is the only dress I own. I am such a blue jeans and tank tops kind girl. Until next Sunday.

That first one is really good, and I like the impromptu one as well.

Very nice shots. The impromptu one has captured the moment best.

I love the photo of your aviators! The tell a great story. Did I ever tell you that I always wore aviators at your age? Not sure if I had the luck you have with them though. LOL

Sarah looks wonderful Sydney. John R Park is a great place for photo's, and plein air painting! I need to go back there and paint again. I really need to get the painting I did there in a frame. I have a mat for it.

If you have the negatives to your prom photo's bring them over we can scan them on my scanner.

Love the glasses. That is a really neat shot!

Great shots, especially the first one. I like the spontaneous shot you got of him picking her up.

Judy said...

Wow!! Neat ones, all of 'em!

I really like that first photo...well done! I like Sara's shots too; the B&W really makes them seem from the 1950's.

Stupid wind. I got those three shots developed. I need like an entire prom album. ._.

You love your aviators too much, Syd. I'm sure if you put the effort into it you'd frame that shot and put it up somewhere.
