The Prom

Today I am sending a picture of a time honored event, the high school senior prom. My oldest and her boyfriend were getting situated for "formal" pictures when I took this shot. The high school prom has evolved over time from my days. Tuxes and formal dresses remain the same but now there are limos, flowers, hair dos, nails, tanning and everything else that has to take place too. My oldest has been getting ready for this for weeks.

When it was all over they had fun but my oldest, ever practical, said "it was just kind of like every other dance." Oh well.

Have a great Sunday.

It's quite a big to-do here too - not called the prom though, we just call it the "matric dance" or "matric farewell". Most schools hold them around August or September, but I see the dresses are starting to go up in the shops already, and I think there's going to be a Matric Dance expo at the local shopping mall very soon.

Hi Mike

Firstly I must thank you for all of your support through this difficult time. It really means a lot to me to know there are people out there who care. I feel like I am sounding like a bore at the moment and have never been in a situation like this so hopefully it will be over soon.

I have been back over all your posts and can't believe I have missed so many!!!! The wedding one makes me remember my time shooting weddings, I hated them LOL but they paid the bills. I love the kites and also the trains and all the history that you posted about them. Hey dont worry about posting pictures that you are passionate about, heck I must bore everyone to death with all of my horse shots LOL. I enjoy seeing the trains and hearing about them. My father spent his whole life in Zimbabwe (was Rhodesia) working as an artisan on the Railways. As a result all of our travel was by train as it was one of the perks and this was in the time of the Steam Locomotive still. I used to love the holiday trips to South Africa that we made every two years. The trip took three days and two nights. Your pictures and stories bring back so many memories that I had forgotten about. When I got my first Brownie camera my brother and I used to go down to our train station and try to get pictures of the steam engines. Wow you have taken me back a ways LOL.

Thank you again.

Lori

Yet another proof that the journey can be better than the destination. Nice shot!
