blast from the past


sunrise84, originally uploaded by beckeyz.

Here is that other shot of the live oak near my house. I took this one back in 1984 with my trusty Minolta XGA. I remember hearing the dj on the radio saying what a beautiful sunrise it was, so I grabbed my camera and ran over to the ditch a couple houses down that leads to this tree.

I'll have to try and get an updated photo of it sometime this year. I worry about overgrowth (weeds) ruining the shot, but I'll try anyhow.

Awesome picture! Fun fact: I lived on Live Oak Blvd and was born in 1984! Coincidence?

LOL! bman, 1984 was definitely a good year. You were born, and I graduated High School. Two miracles in one year!

Oh! Miracles to be sure!

That's officially the second time this week that I've made someone date themselves... Sorry!

This picture reminds me of The Outsiders, when Pony Boy is reciting Nothing Gold Can Stay to Johnny

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

And you know what???? I love the song Stevie sings in this movie
