In patterns of four: a photo

I've been tagged by Karyn over at Mundane Details. The rules, in her words:
1. Go to the 4th folder where you keep your pictures on your computer.
2. Post the 4th picture in the folder.
3. Explain the photo.
4. Tag 4 fellow bloggers to join in the fun!

So, this photo, delightfully uncovered by these patterns of four, is a photo of a family friend taken last summer. This is the corner store where she's been buying her potato salad and lunch meat for over 40 years. She's in her 90's now, and things I've come to value over the years, supporting local business, buying handmade and writing letters the 'old fashioned' way, for example, are simply how it's done in her world.

Now, I tag: Lucy, Char, Kelly, and Mary to spread the fun... My experience of this has been one of re-discovering, of finding forgotten treasure within the piles of folders and photos in my Picture file. So, if on first try, you run across a photo you've shared many times over, perhaps a little flexibility in the rules would be helpful in finding the dusty gems of your computer's memory... Enjoy!

fun shot - I love sweet shots like this and I hope one day I can be as classy and active as this wonderful lady.

Mary said...

Aaack, I only have two photos in my fourth folder! What should I do???

e.o.w. said...

Hmm... pick your favorite?

Kelly said...

Nice idea - I don't usually do these, but since you left it for me in a comment, I thought I'd oblige! Here's my response!

love the find. I tried in vain to 'reorganize' my folders so that 4th 4th pic would be "cool". I was unsuccessful.

This is such a cool picture. We are looking at ageing in the Medical curriculum this week. I may just refer my students to this web page!
