Tuxedo and the Hunt for Pretty Girls
The blog hit 2 million views and it's time to arrange the photo giveaway.
When I told the wife, it would be a good idea to get the tux ready she smiled.
She said, "Honey, speaking of tuxedos, I want you to do something for me."
She dug out my tux and, gave me this photo she wants enlarged. That will come later.
The past few evenings, I've been busy preparing for my photo giveaway.
This gal's fiance is like a giant, way over six feet tall and, has humongous shoulders.
The wife, placed my tuxedo, neatly folded, on the kitchen table.
It's been raining a lot and, I didn't want it to get wet so, I rolled it up and stuffed it in a bag.
Here I am, barhopping and carrying my camera and tux in a canvas sack.
The outfit got wrinkles all over the place and, I need it stretched. I don't have an iron.
The thing wouldn't fit the giant so, I asked the lady, to wear it for awhile.
And, I promised to give them this photo, for assisting me.
She got the wrinkles out for me and, this time I folded the thing neatly so, I should be alright.
Look what the wife gave me, to be enlarged.
It's a freakin' Polaroid snapshot, no larger than a pack of my smokes!
Carefully, I rolled up a piece of Scotch Tape and, stuck the picture on the wall.
Not sure if this would work, I decided to experiment just to keep the missus happy.
The Pentax K1 was mounted on a tripod and, I shot as close as I could get with the lens.
Full frame images, come out of the camera at 7360 x 4912 pixels.
A few photos were taken using different lenses and exposure settings.
When I got the photo cropped, large enough for printing, more work needed to be done.
The beauty wearing a kimono is Mrs. Ryukyu Mike; she still hangs out with me.
A long time ago, the cleaners lost my tuxedo bowtie.
Rather than make a big deal out of it, I just quit trimming the beard.
Before saving the image at high resolution, for printing, I cleared away some of the junk.
The little lady will be happy, to get her enlarged photograph, tonight.
Next, I'll probably get orders to buy her a picture frame and, an iron!
