The Whistling Baby

This is a photograph I did in 1982, ran in the Macon News July 13, and young Carrie Cohen was 8 months old. At the tender age of 7 months her Dad, Louis Cohen, taught her to whistle. This astounding fact was brought to the attention of writer Catherine Lee, who asked if I would like to shoot a photo.

The photo shows young Carrie whistling away to the obvious joy of proud parents Darline and Louis. The story and photo were picked up by the Associated Press and Carries puckered face was gracing the pages of newspapers all over the country.  A friend who was in Rome, Italy at the time even saw the photo on the front page of the Daily American.

Gotta wonder where she is now, and can she whistle "Dock of the Bay?"  What a cutie.

Not Quite As Old As Me....

This old Mack truck has been sitting alongside Highway 96 in Reynolds for  a while now.
Every time I drive by, I tell myself I need to shoot it. Yesterday I stopped and asked Tabb at .Full Power Diesel if it was ok to shoot some pictures.

 If you see something you want to photograph, always take the time to ask the owner's permission. 

This is believed to be a 1952 model Mack. Lordy, I am three years older that it is. And it looks better than me. The previous owner ran it as a wrecker until the early 1980's, then parked it. Tabb rescued it from the woods where it had been sitting. 

 I have always loved old Mack trucks, so much character.

 Hope you enjoy seeing these images.  Not too many of these old beauties still around.
