I promised I Wouldn’t Forget You

The last time I saw my father he was dying of emphysema.  It was two years before he actually passed.  The last thing he said to me was, “Please don’t forget me, Kymm”.  Of course how could a person forget their father.  This is my favorite image of the two of us together.  This is how I like to remember him.  He was healthy and happy.  In 1970 we were living in Gulfport, Florida.

The Mechanic

I was going through some old photos and came across this gem.  This is Larry Fordham.  He used to be my mechanic when I lived in Largo, Florida.  He was a good mechanic.  You just had to get to him before he started drinking.  Even though his life was shit, I always remember him smiling.  Maybe he found the secret to happiness.

I took this image back in March in 1997 in Lakeland, Florida.  This little boy is like 17 or 18 years old now.  I don’t remember his name.  All I know is that his father’s name is Mike and he was a friend of a friend.  I wonder what has become of him.  I played around with the image in Photoframe 4.6, Viveza 2 and Perfect Effects software.  I like the grungy look to it.  It seems to fit his defiant stance.

    • The Death of Creativity July 17, 2016
      It is not pretty, but I had to make myself finish it. I recently got a subscription to the Creative Cloud. So I had to play with Animate. I get really caught up in “getting it right”… so much so that I don’t do it at all. This is a message to myself to just […]

    • Today’s Post Brought to you by the Letter K January 18, 2016
      My latest endeavor has been teaching myself to use Illustrator.  As a friend put it, “The pen tool is the devil.”  I decided not to let that discourage me. I decided that I need to create something, anything, so that I would feel that I am getting somewhere with the program.  The colors are weird […]

      In December 2009 I house/ pet sat for my aunt and uncle in Dixon California.  I had never been to California. Besides house privileges I also had the use of their Prius.  I was able to travel about quite a bit.  San Francisco, Sacramento, Sausalito, Redwood City, Calaveras County. It was an amazing time that […]
    • To Illustrate a Point October 21, 2015
      I’ve come to realize that I have been subscribing to Photoshop User magazine since 2009.  I was going through my collection and realized that I still have some of them in the plastic sleeves, never looked at.  Why have something if you are not going to use it.  In the April/May 2009 issue I found […]
    • Happy Valentine’s Day February 14, 2015
      I have an affection for old cookbooks.  I love the garish, hideous photography.  The colors are off and the food looks unappetizing.
