Photo Meme

I've seen this meme on several blogs recently, and thought it would be interesting to see exactly what picture I had in the magic folder. Here are the rules:

1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer
2) Select the 4th picture in the folder
3) Explain the picture
4) Tag 4 people to do the same. NO CHEATING! (cropping, editing, etc!)

I held my breath as I scrolled through my pictures folder, looking for the 4th folder. Darn it! It's the one from the fish fry last year. Still hope. Maybe it's the good one of Trevor and me, or maybe it's the one of his 93 year old grandmother drinking her highball (she is such a hoot!).

But alas, this was the fourth picture in the 4th folder.

That's right...a picture of raw catfish covered in cornmeal. I was trying to get some good close-up shots of the cooking for scrapbooking purposes, but it was never intended to be a "stand-alone" kind of photo. But since I'm not a cheater (although I seriously considered posting the really cute one of Nathan from the 5th folder), the catfish picture will have to do.

I know I'm supposed to tag 4 people, but I really hate doing that. If this sounds interesting to you, please participate and drop me a line so I can be sure and check out your post. Otherwise, enjoy the southern sushi.

That's funny! Well, good for you for posting it anyway!

ROFL... I love your honesty! I did the same thing... held my breath as I looked through my folders. I was so thankful that while mine wasn't a particularly spectacular shot (from a photographer's perspective - no nice cropping or framing) it was indeed one that brought back wonderful memories. I couldn't have cheated either... LOL. I'm so glad you did this... I thought it was fun! :) (and I didn't follow the rules either) ROFL

Okay, before I read through the post I decided to try to figure out what the picture is. I came up with some kind of pastry sprinkled with powdered sugar. Or an aerial view of a rock pile covered with snow. Catfish -- never crossed my mind.

This is hysterical! All the pictures I have seen to date are works of art with great stories behind them and all I have been thinking is I take a hundred pictures to get two or three great ones. I can't believe all these amazing photos. Surely somebody could post something ordinary.
Glad you did.
