Post A Picture Of Yourself!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the kind words, Kiwi!  I am happy to say that yesterday I completed the task of converting all of our family slides into digital pics.  Over 1,000 photos, it was a lot of fun to see our family grow through the years, to revisit the places we traveled, and to have a good laugh at our fashion choices!!  And throughout, I must say that my mom always remained the coolest one of us all!  Good stuff! :) 

You're very welcome, Debbie! :) That's wonderful! :D I know how important it is to digitalize those precious family photos, to not only relive those precious moments with family but also preserve these priceless photos for posterity! I hope it was a wonderful trip down memory lane and I can't think of anything better to do than spend time, looking at those old family photos, especially during the holiday season! :)

Sometime in summer 1963. Mom, dad and me in front of their Austin-Healey.

Fast forward 50+ years to September 2014. Mom and I at her local fruit and veggie market.

Egad! :o At this rate, if I don't check into this thread more frequently, I might end up missing out on more lovely photos of my friends, on here! :wacko: 

Hi Strider! :wave: Sorry to bother you. I know that you posted these photos a heck of a long time ago, but somehow, I missed them out and found them today by pure chance! :slapface: 

I really love the vintage black and white photo of you and your family! Your mom looks so lovely (I also love what she's wearing! :thumbsup: Fashion in the 60's was so elegant and classy (to say the least!) B) ) and you my friend, look so freakin' adorable! Ha! So sweet! :wub: 

And Strider, in the second photo, you look like a tall, kind, dignified and distinguished gentleman, IMO! :) It looks like you and your mom were enjoying a special day at the local fruit and veggie market and that is so wonderful to see!! :D I know you got to spend time with your mom during thanksgiving this year and I hope you get to spend some time with her, this Christmas! Anyway, thanks for sharing these lovely family photos! Cheers to you! :drinks:

Don't know why my hair looks so dark here, either low lighting or that was after I dyed my hair black a few years ago. :unsure:

^^^Rock on, res! :D 

Well, I was messing around with my webcam yesterday and I 'accidentally' took a photo of myself! Clumsy me! :P

Thank you, Kiwi, and I agree! It made me nervous to only have those photos in the slide format. A few were faded but luckily, most of them were in mint condition. Last Christmas we viewed a couple of the reels using the slide projector, which was fun using equipment that is as old as I am! This Christmas we will view them on a big tv.  The kids (who are all young adults) enjoy seeing pics of their parents and grandparents as young children and teenagers. It makes for an entertaining night, indeed!

I was helping my mom clean out the loft the other day, when I discovered tons of old photos (a lot of which I didn't even know existed! :D ) spanning the lives of my mom and dad (from childhood, adolescence and adult hood), my family's days on board ship and even a few of my late paternal grandfather and maternal great grandmother (of whom I did not know very much, as they passed away when I was a kid) and it was fascinating (to say the least!) and I actually felt as if I had won the lottery! :lol: There were even a few of me, as a baby taken on Christmas Eve, 1988 (I couldn't even recognize myself and I actually asked my mom, who the baby was, in the photos! :lol: ). Just a few photos were damaged luckily and you Debbie, have certainly inspired me to digitalize these family photos! :friends: Your Christmas certainly sounds like a special one! :)

Resistance? Come now, Strider! Don't be shy! :wave: It's only us fellow Zep Heads here and if anyone, I mean anyone says anything mean, I will hunt them down and kick their behinds! I've got your back, Jack! ;) 

Honestly, if I could choose an appropriate photographic representation of that really cool yet subtle growl emitted by Robert Plant on 'For Your Life', your photo will be it!! :thumbsup: B)

Honestly, if there was an award for the most action packed holiday photo posted on the forums, you and Strider, will be sharing that award! :thumbsup: 

Cheers for sharing these photos, gentlemen! B)

Think "Seinfeld"...any Seinfeld fans here will recognize the pose and the setting. ;)

Ahh, I see, and I remember you recently saw the sets!  George would be proud!

We should make a movie together, for some reason that makes more and more sense :D

C'mon Steve, she is a lady, not a piece of meat. You can do better than that.
