Shoot Out -- Second version revised

Okay, okay...I'm not sure if this is what I am supposed to do with Reggie Girl's invitation to a weekly shoot-out. Take a picture of people and paste in my blog? There was one picture I wanted to shoot out with, but I had taken it three years ago and I am guessing the purpose of the shoot out is to shoot something today. It was kind of hard because it was a busy day, but when I got home my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson were here checking emails since they haven't got their own computer yet...because they haven't actually got actual jobs yet. But that is another story and here is the picture I took.

Did I do that right? Is this what the shoot out does? Or should I link it somehow to the official shoot out page. I get so confused by this blogger stuff!

Anyhow, since I'm was on a roll, I also risked life and limb by briefly posting a three year old shoot out picture. This was a dangerous one because it was of family members, all of whom would shoot me if they saw it in my blog. I was shooting a family wedding and had the regular nice posed smiling shots which they framed and put in albums. And when they saw this one in the proofs, they all demanded I delete it forever.

And most of the early birds who saw it last night (or yesterday in Australia) agreed. Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. So this morning I had a brief ceremony and interred it in the computer graveyard known as "trash". RIP.


  1. It looks a little like the bride is having second thoughts...
    A lovely photo of your loving DIL and grandson...and if you look really closely there's a miniature bagman sitting on his shoulder, I guess it's in the genes...

  2. Yes the little guy does look a lot like his grandad.

  3. The photo of your daughter in law and baby is totally gorgeous ..yes it is.
    I love the expressions on both their faces.

    The other one like moment we don't need to remember ....the energy wasn't or isn't right and nobody wants it to spill into their today.

    If I asked you to delete a moment like that? I'd want you to do it ...even if you don't understand why.


  4. For anyone who posts a comment after this comment, the comments above from Delwyn, Dan, and Sara Lulu will not make much sense...but they were...sigh...right. My wife, Karen, thanks Sarah Lulu...

  5. B&B........first off, you have a wonderful sense of humor and I so enjoy your post that I feel as though I am missing something in my day if I don't drop by for a little madness and wisdom :)
    what a beautiful shot of your daughter-in-law and your grandchild. Yes, this is what our "Shoot-Out" is all about.
    That picture speaks volumes......awesome.
    I didn't mean to confuse you. I'm in a state of perpetual confusion. Always have been....probably always will be but I actually kind of like it that was. It's a lot less pressure to just be "confused". People leave you alone and don't ask you anything much.....

    *******STOP calling my cell phone (only on Wednesday nights after 11:00 p.m. I told you!!)*******

    Steady On

  6. You can use older pics if you like. But, I did take most of mine this week in anticipation of the big "Shoot-Out" today.
    Next week is houses B&B....any kind of interesting house that strikes your fancy. We give the subject at least a week in advance so that gives you a week to shoot (a camera....not a gun so please don't get into any trouble. It will be a liitle harder for me to call you if you are an inmate again). I'm so glad that you are joining us and please continue to do so. I find it to be a great deal of fun and quite introspective.

    Steady On
    Reggie Girl

  7. B&B, I never saw the pic that ended up in the venerable trash, but base on the comments, I commend you on removing it! love the pic that you kept! Gorgeous!
    Shoot out sounds like fun! Can't wait to see some amazing photography happening.

  8. Haha I'm so glad you heard.

    My best regards to your wife Karen.

    It is a very important skill to be able to listen, and respond with corrections. Not everyone can do that. Very rare in fact...
