After all the photos I took, I've tried to arrange them in some order based on various topics I found interesting.
And a reminder from T.S. Eliot (East Coker from the Four Quartets)
Old men ought to be explorers Here and there does not matter We must be still and still moving Into another intensity For a further union, a deeper communion
It all started with the building of the new Cooper River bridge. This brought new folks to Charleston from all over the world. Among them were Oliver and Sandrine.
Here is a sort of digital sketch, a transformation of one of my morning photos of the new bridge - just to set the mood for the party
One thing led to another and one birthday led to another and things started to happen. Friends happened, Lucille happened and another birthday happened. Here is the story of the birthday.
The boss, Jackie, the most lovable mother-in-law one could have, candles and the birthday boy
Cyril and Maggie
The group and the boss
Jany, smiles and Lucille
Love with eyes wide open
A young boss and a mature boss
Who is the boss?
Sometimes we are serious
Claudine thinking and Louis smiling
Claudine and Tommy
Tommy and Nancy
And just a reminder of Oliver's magic (May 8, 2005 6:45 am). This is the original image that I used to create the sort-of sketch at the top of this page.
