My friends, it is long past time for me to update the Wall of Life. Truly I say unto you, there is nary a pigtail in this tableau. Nary! It nags me as I walk past it every day.

But I’m wondering…which of these pictures do you think should stay? That is to say—which do you think are classics? And which should get the boot? (I’m thinking the water droplets and the barn have had their day.) You can click the photo to enlarge it. Apologies for the poor quality of the photo—I’ve been having focusing issues with my camera (meaning, I have no idea why my pictures are not as clear as they used to be and still haven’t learned jack about my camera and don’t know where to start poking around because I’m afraid I will blow it up or make all my pictures start coming out lime green or something) and this was the best I had.

I am going to have quite the time selecting new photos to replace the old ones—my iPhoto currently has 19,146 photos on it. No joke. But I do know one pic that will be up there for sure…

I love this photo so hard.

There are other contenders, such as..


and also maybe…

…because, come on now. That’s just awesome.

So, what say you? What should stick around on the Wall of Life? What needs to get the ax? Or should I just start adding on to the adjacent wall? Choices…

i think i would just make the wall of life bigger or start a new wall. but, if you are going to replace a few, the non people ones should get the boot first.

It is time for a change; my favorite (they’re all great, but…) is Noah and Rosie sleeping face to face. That’s a keeper.

I vote for starting a new wall!

6 racher { 11.09.10 at 10:58 pm }

Word, Morgan. Those non-human, inanimate jerk pictures are getting the ax.

And pants-less sunglasses Rosie is a pretty sure bet at this point, methinks.

I think you have the right ones to take down. I love Noah swinging–he looks so TALL!

One of my faves is also the one with L on the pier–but that’s not Noah! Just a coincidently similarly looking statue near Lake Greenwood circa 1998.

That other wall in the room is mighty big…and a bit empty.
