Clothes for a wedding

Boyd is a friend of long standing, and recently he told me that he was headed back to Denver where his daughter Nea lives to attend the wedding of Boyd’s grandson. He went on to explain that his daughter has very specific ideas of what Boyd should wear at the ceremony -- he shouldn’t look like he was for the boids.

The clothes should be neat and clean -- no spots or stains -- and she even had specific instructions regarding colors.

Would I do him a favor and take some photographs to be sent back to said daughter. Sure, of course, anything for a friend.

Then I, with my peculiar sense of humor, suggested that I “spot” or “stain” a couple of pics using Photoshop. “No, no, my daughter doesn’t have that kind of sense of humor.” (Boyd does). Then I asked if I could use this for a posting to my blog, and he said sure. Could I”stain” one or two just for fun? “Go right ahead.”

So Saturday he and his wardrobe posed for me, and you get to see the results.

Humor (other than spots and stains):

Do you recognize any of these?

  1. Oh Man, it's a wedding. Your friend can cut the snark for one afternoon, surely.

    That said, my own wedding was such a laid back, low key gathering. My parents had a big tent in their backyard and it was catered but a neighbor made the cake (admittedly she was a professional.) I love casual. Hope your friend has fun!

  2. Hope the wedding is fun. I should be a fly on the wall at that one as I will be in Denver soon. Good friend, you are!

  3. "Boyd is a friend of long standing." So, how long did he have to stand? He does look tall, maybe that's it.
