    Missing You

    I was out of town for 3 1/2 days last week, for a continuing education workshop in Statesville (300 miles from home). When I had signed up for it, the wife was planning on going with me. Then she took a new job, and she can't take leave for the first six months, so I had to go alone.

    Of course I took my camera and my tripod, so Tuesday night, I set it up, took this self portrait, downloaded it onto her laptop,and emailed it to her. I titled the email "Missing You". She really liked it. So much so, that she showed it to every woman in the Health Department, with a "look at my man" attitude.

    She also suggested that I post it on PR.

    BTW, she has signed up on PR as well. So she's out there lurking, watching, and perhaps adding a critique or two...

    Wink Eeeeeewwwww!

    Nice try Adina!

    But I know that deep down, you're wishing you could have taken that photo.

    ;-)

    Or at a minimum, that your man would do that for you....

    :-D

    Then again, not every man could pull this off. A few could. Brad Pitt comes to mind...

    :-O

    Sorry buddy. Hate to do that to you, but a man's got to do, what a man's got to do.

    The wife said post it, so I posted it.

    Think of it as inspiration for when you're away from your wife.

    She will appreciate it, knowing that you're thinking of her.

    Really?

    "but it's still tastless"

    Hehehehe.

    Geez. I think I'm being discrimitnated against here.

    Gender discrimination on PR. Tsk, tsk.

    If Adina posted a shot like this, she'd be praised, adored, and lauded.

    Then again, she is Adina, the Queen of Self Portraits.

    Errrrr, I almost got fired from my new job!!! Where's the NSFW warning!!!????!!!!

    Good thing my contacts were dirty and I didn't get the full effect.

    You know you're with friends when they give you such a hard time for stuff like this.

    Dawn, are you out there? You need to start participating and stop lurking!!!

    I walk on the wild side. I laugh at danger.

    Hehehe.

    I guess I could have put up a warning about "implied" nudity, but there isn't any nudity here.

    A brave man? I must be to take the abuse I take. And yes, I knew the abuse was coming before I ever posted this shot. My friends on PR do not disappoint me....

    Thanks for the comments.

    Almost???!!! Dang, I'll have to do better next time!

    :-D

    "Where's the NSFW warning!!!????!!!!"

    NSFW? Not Suitable For Work?

    "Good thing my contacts were dirty and I didn't get the full effect."

    God must love you buddy...because I wanted you (and Rick, among others) to get the full effect!

    ;-)

    "You know you're with friends when they give you such a hard time for stuff like this."

    Yes indeed, and now I know how Brad Pitt must feel....

    :-O

    I have a co-worker who says "They persecute the pretty". So true!!!

    "Dawn, are you out there? You need to start participating and stop lurking!!!"

    Troy, you, of all people, should be able to find her on the site.

    Think about it. One thing our wives have in common. (Besides being married to incredibly good looking photographers!)

    Re: Missing You

    Down here at school, the running gag is if no one shows up for the cheerleaders, dancers, etc car wash, I will take my shirt off. So far the threat has worked and I haven't had to get anyone sick. Speed, you are a much less inhibited man than I.

    Talking Yes, well, I am Adina.

    Yes you are! The queen herself. If I could make my self portraits look as good as yours, I'd post more shots of my face and wouldn't have to go the risque route.

    "But if I were hairy like that, I'm sure I'd get the same reaction"

    Any woman that hairy would surely get the same reaction! Ugh!

    Ironically, I'm really not that hairy. I don't know where the hairy patch on my lower belly comes from. No one else in the family has it. And I know I'm not adopted because I look too much like my dad. (I know what you were thinking...)


    "Ahhh Speed, I've missed you."

    And I've missed you! You help make this forum so much fun.

    Talking ...I will take my shirt off.

    "Speed, you are a much less inhibited man than I."

    The trick to show what you want people to see (or think they are seeing). The wife has told me that several of her co-workers have made comments about me having a "six pack". They obviously haven't seen me in a swimsuit!

    When I was 30 I was in great shape. At 35 I looked better than most guys 10 years younger than me. At 40 I still looked good for my age, but I wasn't working out like I used to. I'm now 45, and I really need to get back to working out...

    The photo was meant to to tease, amuse, and entertain the wife while I was out of town. She's gotten a lot of mileage out of it, and even considered making it her desktop.

    :-O

    Thanks for the comments buddy!

    This is my favorite picture of the week! Yes, this is speed's wife. I am real, not a dream. I love it that he gets a hard time from all of you and keeps coming back for more. I feel connected to most of you through proxy over the last few years. :blush2:

    It's about time!

    Let me be the first to say Welcome!

    Oops, almost forgot to say I like your screen name. I knew right away who you were. Very appropriate.
