Jack Again


Originally a corporate lawyer in Boston, Jack finished his career as
general counsel of the country's biggest electric utility company.

Jack needed something to do when he retired.  So, he started taking photographs and
putting them on a blog.  Today that silly little blog is four years old.

When Jack started the blog, he had very good reasons for protecting his anonymity.  
So he only showed the top of his head.  Later, a big honking camera hid his face.
  
Like so many other things these days, Jack can no longer remember those very good reasons.

Congrats Jack, four years without missing a day, that's quite something.. if you were still a lawyer and I had a problem with my corporation :) you'd be my first 'go to'!

What a fantastic portrait Jack! Good to see the unobstructed you! Congratulations on the anniversary. I hope you enjoy doing it as much as I do.

Karl Demetz said...

I admit, with all these Jack I'm a bit confused :)
We say here: Never two without a third... So I expect to see the third Jack tomorrow...
Jack, in all honesty, my warmest compliments for your excellent (not silly) blog! Happy Anniversary!

Congrats on your blog-a-versary! And, GREAT to see you!

Bob Crowe said...

Congratulations on the anniversary. These things take a lot of dedication. And you've given us a charming self portrait as a present.

Even the long-concealed Birdman reveled himself recently. The only previous shot of him was mine on the day I met him, with his face completely blacked out.

So adorable portrait! Love your hat! :)

Happy Blogiversary!!!

Andy said...

Very impressive career Jack. I am glad to be here on the day that finally exposed your chin. Keep on taking those photos Jack, I am enjoying everyone of one of them.

EG CameraGirl said...

Nice to see the real you, Jack. Even though I cannot think of any good reasons to not show the world the real me - except that I truly am camera shy - I am still reluctant to do so. :))

Virginia said...

Congratulations of your milestone Jack and nice to see your smiling face.... all of it! :)

Sue said...

So you decided to do the big reveal for your blog anniversary, huh? Nice!

José Mendonça said...

Congratulations on your blog's 4th anniversary! It's always a pleasure visiting 'you'. And great portrait, Jack.

SRQ said...

Congratulations on your 4 year blog-a-versary! What a milestone! Not only have you kept the blog going, but you consistently post captivating photos with interesting background information -- not an easy achievement. And, then…you trumped yourself with the Big Reveal! I agree with everyone else -- it's nice to see you here. Hope to see you and your blog around for many more years. Bravo!

Four years is a great milestone to reach - and good to see the full-on version of you, handsome fellow that you are. Isn't it funny how careful we were at first and how much bolder we've become now we know there are mostly very nice friends out there in the blogosphere. I might use my real name if I started again now - though I've got quite fond of jenny.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

YOU! Love the photo and the 'full-Jack'! So glad to see you...

Congratulations!!! I knew that we started at the same time. My 4th is tomorrow on Bastille Day.

Bises,
Genie

Finally decided to go public I see. I'm sure you had good reasons for initially wanting anonymity. I don't think you have forgotten what they were, you just don't care any more. Right? Congrats on your 4th blog anniversary; quite an accomplishment.
