Happy Father's Day


Happy Father's Day to all the Father's out there!

This photo goes way, way back.  This is my dad taken sometime in the early 70's.  When we first moved to Arizona, dad loved to take his jeep out and explore and he found this old mine opening.  We went back a week or two later and he had brought along some western duds so he could have his picture taken at the mine.  He's looking pretty darn cute, don't you think?

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm visiting and ancient wonder, the Colosseum in Rome.

A fine figure of a man, great portrait!

Your father was a handsome man which probably is one explanation for the beauty of his daughters!

Very cool shot Sharon, your Dad was a bit of all right :)

Your Dad looks like he belongs there! The red shirt clearly brightens up the image. Seems as though he knows what will make a good photo, just as you do!

What memories to have this photo.

Judy said...

I always loved this photo. Gosh, he looks so young!

Wow! In black and white this would be a dead ringer for an old cowboy movie still. Maybe "The Good, the bad and the Ugly" with Eastwood. Maybe he fell out of a movie with Hopalong Cassidy, Maverick, Jesse James, the Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke, the Calamity Kid...etc. Really.

Are you sure your Dad wasn't a movie star?

Great photo, Sharon. I can just hear him saying Stay away from my mine, pardner. This gun ain't for show!"
