I had a few minutes and decided to stop in and take photos of anything that might catch my eye. Turns out, Mean Gene was the most interesting thing I encountered. With his “#1 Fan” foam finger and other stylish accessories attached to his Cheese Head, he was a standout. I asked if I could take his photo and he was kind enough to accommodate me…cheering, “Go, Pack, Go!” while waving his Packers towel. I’ll bet Gene could tell you stories and glories of many Packer seasons. Unfortunately, neither of us had time to chat – just snapped a few quick photos and went our separate ways.
I did learn, beside being the ultimate Packers fan, Mean Gene was at Lambeau that day as a volunteer. He was helping with some event for disabled veterans. It’s obvious, Gene is living up to his reputation as a true Packers Fan but I don’t think he’s succeeding in pulling off the “Mean” persona. (But, then again, I’ve never seen him on game day.)

As you can see, he was an eager eater. This kid can pack away the oatmeal. Just look at the size of that bowl. He ate it all!

I wonder what thoughts were rolling through the birthday boy’s mind before he makes his wish and blows out the candles. (Maybe wondering why there are only half as many candles as their shoudl be…or their odd placement.)
Turned out all the lights to capture this by pure candlelight.

A family visit to the lake yielded this foot portrait. The feet belong to our son, daughter-in-law and their 8-month-old boy.
I love this image because it sparks the imagination – wondering about the family and the story behind this scene. As you study the image, it also provides plenty of interest points – the dimples, the wet hair, the toes, the positions, the water drops, the diaper.
Feet are very unique and always interesting, although, sometimes, in an unappealing way. I thought this was a very appealing bunch.
