Simple joys of life- back to the fun

By annettep38  
After a long absence and a lot of time to think, I decided to come back with 3 decisions. I will not post the same stuff over and over again. I will not worry about the amount of votes and I will use my sense of humour. So not more than two insects a week, I'm diversifying. And I am preparing for the big move, by the end of the year my flag will have changed for good Smile

So I hope you can forgive me and we can have some fun. Feel free to comment, I will post some pictures of people , all candids, no formal portraits. Many are folks I know, others aren't.

This is strange. I have been away for a LONG time and decided to drop in on Annette -- just to find that she too has been off-site a long time, thinking many of the same things I have been mulling over.
This is all very interesting to me but probably nobody else.
Anyway -- regarding this shot.
I LOVE it. It's a nice, casual slice-of-life shot. Gotta love the socks and that red plaid shirt. Nice use of DOF here, Annette. I'm glad I broke my self-imposed silence and stumbled upon this image.
By the way -- I just renewed my e2 membership but I have no idea how much one pound sterling is worth in American dollars. Can't wait to see my VISA bill.

Welcome back Annette, when I first joined the site I thought it was important to get lots of votes on my images and if I did not I thought it a failure, I have since realized you get a lot of votes not because your image is a success but because you give a lot of votes, I have since changed my view and my approach and I now upload what pleases me and if it pleases others its a bonus if it does not then there is no drama.

What I am trying to say is do what pleases YOU and have fun doing it.


Kind regards. - Gary

Oops sorry, love the image

Where can I get a pair of those socks Annette, be fun to turn up in the pub wearing them. At my age it might give me some street cred.

Good to see you back on site, Annette!
Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder - and uploads to EPZ must be what you want to share.
Gary(gary_d)'s comments are excellent and offer much food for thought.
Best wishes,

Nice to see back again after almost 2 months away, Annette.
I agree that votes are not that important and now I seldom leave voting on but do so on the odd occasion just out of curiosity.
And I too would echo Gary's remarks.
So enjoy the site in your own way and I am sure it always be a pleasure to view what you post irrespective of content or subject matter.
And that's a very nice portrait of this chap relaxing and I too want those socks......WinkWinkWink.

......... and ignore The Photo Mafia!

Great composition and use of DOF, lovely, natural portrait of this gent but it is definitely the the socks that steal the show.

Absolutely delightful. Older men express themselves in their socks... They could be a competing focal point here but they complement the face rather well.
Good to see you back! Enjoy the site, that's the main thing.

Welcome back Annette - I didn't think you'd give a monkey's curse about votes anyway.
I welcome diversity because it makes me think out of the box and allows us to have fun with our cameras
and creativity skills and maybe keep dementia away from our door.
Anyway I must say I love those socks and anybody who wears them can't be a fuddy duddy!

Agree...welcome back, and I never have votes activated
And always put on photos I like
Look forward to seeing what you like too

He, he... I like those socks.
I have votes on, to give people the chance to say: I was here - if they don't have the time or don't bother to leave a comment. That's the main reason.
