Eagle Express



I'll be posting a few more photos from Mammoth Mountain. For some reason I really like this photo, although it probably violates all the rules of good photography.


While there, we watched a portion of Sleepless in Seattle on TV. The movie was made in 1993, which doesn't seem so long ago, but it was filmed before cell phones, laptops, Google, and ... before blogging, My Space, Facebook. What a different world it was.

Can I go back in time for just an hour or so and make a couple of key investments? And wasn't internet access by modem and amazingly slow? Making that eee-eee-zzzzhhhhh noise as it cranked up?

T, when you discover the reason you, "really like this photo", let me know.

I remember The movie because there is a clip of one of my favorite:
"An affair to remember" where Rosie O'Donnell knows all the dialogue by heart!!!

the first rule of photography is to be willing to violate the rules of photography.
enjoyed catching up on your photos!

I'm at Pasadena Adjacent now

Do you remember how you could play "Mary had a little lamb" on push button phones? The attendants hand held receiver brings back memories.

What KG said.
You are so right. How quickly the world has changed.

I like this photo, and I agree with what you said. I often think about that when I sit with the controls for the air conditioner, TV/DVD/video, and my cell phone and wireless phone...and my wireless lapstop computer...

Hey, I watched that too! It doesn't seem that long ago for that much to have changed...

Don't know about rules, but there's so much in this photo that makes it really interesting - the reflections in the roof, the splash of red of the skier, the chatting-on-the-phone while negotiating the lift...

Sleepless in Seattle: guaranteed to have my husband asleep by halfway through every time.
