Big kid surprised me and came home for a quick visit from his job working as the camp photographer and videographer in Middleofnowhere, Mississippi. It’s hard to even get cell phone service where he is, so we don’t get to talk to him very often.
His visit was a total surprise, so I was thrilled to have him here for a a full day and a half.
While here, he made time to run down to the Fairhope Pier, which he misses terribly (almost as much as he misses me), and took these beautiful photos. When you grow up on the Gulf Coast, then live inland for a while, you really start to feel land-locked. It’s a strange feeling I experienced when I lived in metro-Atlanta, and other people have told me they’ve felt the same thing.
The sad thing was, because he had spotty phone service, he didn’t realize his brother and Dad were going to be out of town, so he only got to see me. The happy thing was, I got him all to myself!
I think this photo of the water in Mobile Bay would look great blown up into a huge print.
Big guy will be back in a few weeks for a longer break, then back to camp, then back to college in Birmingham.Â Back and forth, back and forth . . . I take him being at home when I can.
