Sincerely 'Fro Me to You - Honeymoon Edition

Big D and I couldn't go on our honeymoon to Panama City Beach, Fl. until a year and a ½ after the wedding ceremony. This was the age before digital cameras. When what you took is what you got. There was no telling how the picture would turn out.

Here is a prime example. We were young and had no clue about picture taking. We wanted the ocean behind us so we set the camera on a tripod and posed. Who knew that the light behind us would create such darkness? Obviously NOT us. I was so sad to see this picture.
Of course, I never learn a lesson the first time.Now we are a little more knowledgeable about photography and we live in the wonderful world of Photoshop. I'm still learning but I'm bound and determined to make this a good shot. I've been able to clean up both pictures some. Look at how thin Big D used to be! Look at his pin rolled acid washed jeans with the lovely holes. And why am I so much more dressed up than him? I remember we were going out to eat at Capt'n Anderson's. Did he not bring some nice clothes? Good grief. ;)

I have SO many photos from back in the day that are so awful because of my lack of skillz.

And I just can't figure out my photoshop yet.

LOL! Big D looks like he should have a cigarette hanging out of his mouth! So James Dean he was!

I envy your mad Photshop skillz. You. Rock.

Acid washed jeans were so cool - they were dressing up! Great pics - even if they are dark.

Great pictures! Made me laugh at his 'dressy clothes'

I know what you mean, you just don't get those moments back - I bet that was so disappointing to get that picture back afterwards and seeing it was so dark.

That's awesome that you were able to take it and brighten it up some!! It looks great!!

Love the jeans... lol

Call it a "theme"...yeah. I think we only have 2 photos of the two of us together from our honeymoon, and one is in front of whoever's castle at Disney World, so we are just these tiny people at the bottom. And about the clothing...maybe he thought you wouldn't be going out much, you know how guys think.

Mmmm Captain Anderson's..We always have to go to PCB for Softball Tournaments, I am hoping this year we can go some where different though. Even though I do love eating at Billy's.

Ha ha I still take pictures in the wrong light too!! We have so many of us that are dark. You guys look so cute anyway.

My brother still wears your husbands stylin' clothing to this day!

You sure did brighten up that photo!
Good job!
You must have REALLY loved him a lot to let him tag along with you out to dinner with him looking like THAT and you all dressed up.

We love our hubbies, even when they are under-dressed. They are keepers!

Misty Dawn said...

Dang he's tall! I gave up a long time ago when it came to asking Hubs what he was going to wear somewhere. The answer was/is always the same, no matter where we are going - jeans and a t-shirt.
