For the love of a good picture together!

This is what happens when two people travel together, desperate to get some good photos as a couple but couldn't muster the courage to ask other people to take pictures for them and obviously do not know the significance of a tripod! The results...blooper shots...and a possible accidental strangulation of the hubby, unbeknownst to the wifey while she struggles very hard to get herself to a comfortable position so they could have a sweet and loving pose together.

It was a weekend and we thought of driving to Petit Jean state park to breathe some fresh air and get smitten by the breathtaking view of nature. We wanted to have souvenir pictures of ourselves in that place, but as pointed out earlier, we haven't thought of getting a tripod so we made use of the limited resources we had at that time. We picked a good spot a little farther from the crowd of tourists, then decided to sit on a narrow bench for the actual shot which we thought was great since across from it was a concrete table that served us a perfect place for us to lay our camera on. Once hubby finally figured out how to use the self-timer feature of the camera, we tried to settle in and hope for the best shot. We had 10 seconds to achieve the perfect couple pose but I had so much trouble lifting myself up on that narrow bench, not from lack of trying as you can see in the photos. We're just glad we didn't seriously hurt ourselves in the process. We had fun though. The photos speak for themselves.






After all the hardships, this is the closest to a good one that we could get.

We finally gave up on the idea of me on a bench behind him since obviously my hubby is tall even when he's sitting down and without having to point out the obvious (that I'm short), therefore I can't give him a nice loving hug without choking him. Arrgh! So there you go...


We moved to the end of the bench and settled on this for the final pose. Pretty much better than the previous shots, isn't it? We both looked very relaxed and happy.

  1. OMG, Jenn, these shots made me laugh real hard. I love that pose of your husband making that choking face while you've got your arm around him. I don't think he was playing around either! LOL. That's too cute! You guys are so sweet with each other, and you can see it from these shots. ;)

    The last shot of the both of you looks great, since your hair's down, and it's really fabulous that way.

    Also, do you guys have hills or mountains? It looks like you both are ways up in that park! ;)

  9. hala nakaka-aliw nga. I know how frustrating it is to get a decent shot of the two of you when it's just the two of you traveling.

    we have a tripod, but in the almost 10 years that we have been traveling minsan pa lang namin dinala and on that trip, we used it sparingly kasi na-dyahe kami being watched by fellow tourist hehe. hanggang bahay na lang ang gamit niya.

    -LOL. I didn't even realize I was already choking him coz I was busy trying to pull myself up before the 10 seconds expire. :) I really laughed out loud when I saw those pics right after.

    Yes, I believe Petit Jean is up in the mountains. We were still back in Ozark when we went there. I think it was a little over an hour to get there from our old place. The place has a very interesting legend behind it. :)

    -i've thought of getting a tripod but after raeding your comment, i'm now reluctant. we're both shy individuals so if bringing a tripod would attract more attention from other tourists than necessary, then maybe wag nalang, hehe kakahiya naman pag maraming tumitingin. :)

    -yes daku pa ang frame vernz pero my idea is to hug him from behind, gamay ra man ang bench, daku man cya lubot, then ako pud dako, so wala mi naigo, naglisod lisod lang jud, pwede raman unta tupad, hehehe!
