This week's challenge is memories, selected by Lew. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
How about this... This week's header is a 1907 Conley Field Camera; you and I use cameras to capture memories. It was displayed in the Galena and U. S. Grant Museum, which preserves memories. My wife and I stayed in Galena, Illinois during our 25th wedding anniversary (Jan. 23), as we celebrated memories and created new ones.
|The staff said visitors were allowed to make photos. Yea!!!|
|I'll stick to my Pentax, thank-you.|
|Try as I might, this contraption wouldn't allow me to update Facebook.|
|You may think it strange, but I've always wanted to try to shave using a straight razor.|
|I was with my wife, so I couldn't make a spectacle of myself.|
|This was a delightful dining experience.|
|One of my favorite parts of the trip was the wine tasting. I didn't overindulge, but it was neat to learn how to sample wines. My wife prefers the sweet, white wines, and I like them dry and red.|
|It was especially neat for me to see the fine photography of Tom Mangelsen.|
|Cool sign, with its colors and textures!|
|The reason for the trip and the best part. It was about remembering our 25 years of marriage.|
