Kickin' Back

Share your top favorite photo you took in June. Give us the back story.

We got a new sofa for the den in June. Alan got right on selling our old one. In fact he did such a good job, that we found ourselves without a sofa for nearly 3 weeks! So we played make-do.

We have a couple of chairs in the den, but it's a small room, so the sofa provided the lion's share of the seating. 

As we waited for the new sofa to be delivered we tried out a variety of options. Alan's go to spot became a lounge chair he bought several years ago. It's really an outdoor lounge, but he bought in to use inside because he injured his sit bones doing long distance biking several years ago. Frankly, he can't sit comfortably much of anywhere.

I snapped this picture with my phone one night while we were watching TV together, and then posted it on Facebook. Lots of friends commented on it. Most were humorous of course. But, truth be told, I really like this picture. 

We don't have many photos of Alan as he's a semi-professional photographer, so he's always behind the camera. But I also like this one because it shows the Alan I know -- relaxed, but intent. Comfortable in his own skin and clothes. And there's something terribly appropriate about him being framed by the dog bed and dog bowl!

  1. I would love to see his photos featured on your blog sometime! Looks like he's plenty comfortable. You don't even need indoor furniture!

    1. That's a good idea! I'll put that on editorial planning board :)
