There’s a great little chapbook of poems by the poet Ron Padgett called Poems I Guess I Wrote comprised of poems that the author claims with great sincerity to have no recollection of having written. We take a lot of photos for The Big Something, most of which just get dumped onto my computer for later perusal, and many of which don’t get looked at at all unless they’re part of an upcoming story. While I can’t say that I have no recollection whatsoever of all the images in this slide show, I’d certainly forgotten about most of them and was delightfully surprised to find them in my photo library as I did some house cleaning recently. While the photos most of the photos aren’t particularly regional in any way, they’d certainly all be part of a Big Something tumblr if we had one. If one of these photos isn’t ours, which is entirely possible, we apologize and hope you’ll let us know. Thanks and enjoy!
