Mississippi blur

blues trail marker for Charley Patton, king of the Delta blues. Read more about Patton's life here in R. Crumb's comic book retelling.
romping around Charley Patton's graveyard looking for his tombstone, which unfortunately we did not find. However, a friendly dog hung out with us the whole time, which made me wonder if perhaps he was C.Patton incarnate.

our amazing wedding photographer and now lifetime buddy, Austin.
dang, it sure is hard to get a close up photo of an armadillo. they're faster than you'd think.

Evidently the Mr. and I don’t know how to use a point and shoot film camera, as most of our photos taken with this camera turned out blurry.  Despite the blur, I can still appreciate (and actually like) these photos that convey those special languid moments spent in Mississippi - exploring old graveyards of famous bluesmen, watching the remarkable big red sun go down, trying to get a glimpse of the elusive Armadillo, and rocking on the porch. Is there anything more relaxing than rocking on a porch?

We haven't got our wedding photos back yet, which is too be expected since it was only about a week ago that we got hitched, but when we do I'll be sure to share with you our happy story.


  1. congratulations, crystal! love and happiness to you and pete!

  2. The blur actually kind of gives this post a cool and unique feel!


  3. I'm really liking the blur. It conveys a haziness and an air of mysticism that only exists in the South.

    I've never seen an armadillo in the wild! I was hoping to catch a glimpse of one while in TX earlier this year, but nope.

  4. Dear Crystal, I just realized that you get married, cause I was in a trip and I just only skiped through your pics at the post before this post :) Congrats and mega happy life for you together <3 I get really curious about your wedding pics, I guess a little bit how they look like.

    These blurry pics are so fine even they are blurry, they seem to hide some mysterious moments under the images :))


    1. no worries, Deniz. Thanks for the congrats! I can't wait to share my wedding photos when I get them.
