WHY I LOVE NEWPORT KENTUCKY

Preview

ACTUALLY COVINGTON!!!!!

I have been having a lot of trouble with my Homepage lately.  I have not been able to open it to add pictures and then transfer them to the Blog.  Going through FTP space is time consuming and takes up way too much time! 

Especially to load on the page.  And I have DSL! I can only imagine how frustrating it is with dial up.   So, I'm trying out new things while AOL gets things fixed...(will they ever?) I'm loading the picture on another screen name, faking out my "experimental" journal to think I am posting from Homepages...copy it...then come back over here.  Wonder if it will work?  

I took this picture in front of the Economy Meat Market in Covington.  It is right across the street from the "Boom Boom Room" (what I refer to strip clubs in general) that advertised "The most beautiful girls in Kentucky".  I thought it amusing.

The guy came outside when he noticed me taking pictures.  I have never asked someone I had not met if  I could take their picture!  But he was so cute in his white apron.  I told him I was entering a photo contest and would he mind?  Of course not!  It was so easy to ask him!    I need to ask people more often. 

A very interesting web site I found on Photo Friday that some of you all may be interested in.  Go check it out!  World Photo Day! Sounds like fun to me.

Anyway, this is just a nonsense post.

This IS a great picture!!  I've only asked people a couple of times...and then it was to photograph their kids.

Thanks for the link to World Photo Day.  It sounds extremely interesting.  I'll bet it's going to take some time to see EVERYTHING!

Mary, I love to take pics of others, and they have always been accomodating. . . Whenever I travel especially I will ask, "Excuse me, will you take my pic here byt such-nsuch, or here infront of so-n-so, and then after the oblige me, I say, "Oh, thank you, alright, I have a rule, I have to take a photo of all the friendly folks who take a picture of me for my scrapbook."  Most often I get a name and city/place of residence as well.  it is fun, and a great way to meet locals and other 'tourists.'  keep going on taking pics of people.  Who knows one day you may have a coffe table book of "People (insert title here)". . . Cya, Kris
