Waiting on Joe

DSC_0323A song actually popped into my head while I was looking at this picture. For a minute I had actually forgotten it was a song, but it is.  “Waiting on Joe” as sung by Steve Azar. I’m sure there are other songs out there, but I didn’t really care enough to look.  I know…I probably shouldn’t admit that, but it is out there….so anyway.

As for this guy….I’m not sure if he was waiting on Joe, but he was waiting on his buddy to get done with the waves.  It was kind of something out of a movie.  I guess that could be because I do not see very many surfers in the Midwest.

I also just like watching the guys with their surf boards.  I’m not being sexist, there was not a single woman on the beach with a board. Just guys. Standing on the sanding beaches in the cool fall air and diving into the depths of what I’m sure was the even colder ocean.

I don’t know why I liked watching them.  Some guys just have that surfer magazine appeal about them.  Maybe some day, I can actually get some catching tide.  Though, I suspect not in Maryland.  These surfer boys seem to do a lot of sitting around and waiting and crashing.  There are some that catch a wave, but it always seem to be short lived.  Still, I admire their dedication and perseverance.   Surf on, boys.  Surf on.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

    • He might have been Keanu Reeves 🙂 It has been so long since I’ve seen that movie. I think you are right, these are rather cinematic. That is kind of what he reminded me of standing there. Model type, only seen in movies or magazines. Just hope I did it justice.


  1. Buried. Gallery show took a huge amount of last minute time. So, I’m just reading now. Funny, you mention “Waiting on Joe.” A friend of ours from up in Breaux Bridge played electric guitar and slide guitar on most of that album.

      • Sonny is pretty legendary as a musician’s musician. As an example, Eric Clapton used to put on big guitar festivals called Crossroads Festival. When EC met Sonny, he told him that HE wanted to meet him, not the other way round.

        Oh, I’m talking my physical gallery show in New Orleans. That took a long time to plan, execute and actually show. The opening was last night.

        The galleries on WordPress are easier than you think. You just have to have the pictures loaded and ready to go. It also helps, if you make them as small as possible. When I make the jpegs, I do them by hand, they end up being something like 12×8 inches at 96 dpi. I make sure the they are never over 300 kb (that saves upload and download time) and the gallery doesn’t take much more time to do than uploading one picture… except that I put copyright info in the picture. But, that’s don in photoshop and is part of my workflow.
