Sailboats and Movie Stars




Yeah I don't know

I was going to post a photo of sailboats I took last week and tint it pink for Mother's Day.

It might look better in black and white

What do you think?

In Rome, 1965: Aunt Flossie holding her cool white shades, Mr. Capuccio who my cousin says lived in the converted 1960 Rome Olympic village and two Hollywood movie stars

Then I realized I should just put up this picture of my mother and me in our matching movie star sunglasses. The sailor suit fits the post theme nicely. OMG I think I still have a purse like that.
This last photo is by my dad who taught me it's way more fun to be behind rather than in front of the camera.

    1. All three of us must have been quite the picture of American touristas in those white shades, Brian.

  5. Cutie patooties, you and your mom were. I remember those little scarves....Your tinted photo looks vintage, like it could've been taken in the 1960s.

    1. My sister wore those scarves even more than I did since she was older and always primping. I was more of a tomboy and could care less. Sure, that's what I meant to do, make a vintage photo that looked the period (;

  6. Hi Jeanna, you were a proper little poser! Love the glasses though, they certainly give anything Jackie O wore a run for their money. I prefer the slightly pink photo as it makes the boats stand out a little more.

    1. I was, it runs in my dad's family, the photo loving Dempsey Clan. Ha, that Jackie O, responsible for many a hot day of wearing white gloves in the sun. I guess I can see that it makes the boats stand out, I'm just a sucker for black and white but don't mind the pink.

  7. LOL - you look like a movie star in that last shot.

  8. I love the tinted pic more than the B&W. Best of all is your family pic. The sunglasses are indeed fantastic and what a striking image. #mysundayphoto

    1. You do, hmmm, I think the pink is winning the vote. My dad was always taking photos, annoying when I was older but much appreciated.

    1. Does that make me a child of the sixties cuz I literally was a child in the sixties (; I looked more like my aunt and mother as I got older and although I thought I was pretty cool, have been kind of a dork most of my life. I have had more than one purse that looks like that and actually have a couch full of them I going to get rid of from my recent cleaning binge. How funny, I never realized my taste in purses was that of an 8-year-old.

    1. Thanks, Pat. A little faded, but still there. My favorite thing is that my dad took the photo and I think he got a new camera on this trip which I used years later.

    Best regards!
