Picture tag - I'm going incognito

I have been tagged by Tara at Stickyfingers to post a pic on my blog. I have to go the 4th folder in my computer where I store my pictures. Pick the 4th picture in that folder. Explain the picture. And tag 4 people to do the same.

This is a challenge as I have several picture folders and folders within folders. What's more, when I went to my fourth folder, it only had three pictures in it. And they were all blurry. Then I went to the next folder, found the 4th picture but it was blurry and of my naked child. I quickly began to realise, looking at the pics, that I'm not very good at taking pictures. There are a vast number of blurry shots. And many, many shots of my naked children.

So a bit of lateral thinking later, I decided to pick the fourth folder from the bottom and the fourth picture from that. The pictures in the bottom folders are the oldest, so it unearthed a picture from 2001. I'm not quite sure why in one picture there are actually three photographs - I think we must have scanned in some pictures from an album, which probably explains the poor quality. Sorry about that. Not very clear but I'm just following the meme rules (sort of).

Anyway, it's a series of pictures of me, sitting on a windswept beach on Martha's Vineyard. We were there on a weekend break as we used to live in Boston. This was before children. Before wrinkles. Before marriage even. It was when we had a life. And went to fun places. And could drink copious amounts and not worry about it because we could sleep late the next morning.
I'm actually virtually incognito thanks to the sunglasses and hat. But admire the scenery anway.



I hereby nominate A Modern Mother, Katyboo, Ali, Welsh girl

Let's see those pics ladies.

Wow, you don't mess around do you!
I hadn't even had time to come over here and tell you I'd tagged you.

Love the photos. Very California cool.

Well it took less time than writing the other blog post I had in mind and I have two small boys trying to kill each other, so brevity was the order of the day

Hey, I live in Boston! That's not Skegness beach behind you is it?

Home Office Mum said...

That girl - it was lovely. Looks just like it does in all those American films. We just felt very poor in comparison to the rich people there.

The Dotterel - I believe we might be talking about different Boston's. But you never know, could be Skegness.
