Vacation Photos: A Man's Perspective
by Karla ° Monday, August 18, 2008
Every time I get home from vacation and start pouring through all of the pictures and video that Mark and I took, I’m faced with one common theme. And this theme has nothing to do with the standard touristy snapshots of colourful artisan markets, wide-brimmed sunhats, or scenic marvels from a faraway land forever stilled in the flushed light of daybreak.

No, the common theme from all of our vacation photos, at least when Mark’s handling the camera, is photo after photo after photo of MY ASS. Note Exhibit A.

Exhibit A: Typical vacation scenery, according to Mark.

Long time readers may recall the video I put together from all the footage that Mark, all clandestine and stealthlike, took of my postpartum derrière when we escaped to the spirit-healing region of the Rocky Mountains shortly after Ava passed away. If you haven't seen it, brace yourself for the eyesore that was my favourite pair of post pregnancy waist-expanding bubble gum-pink yoga pants, decade old rap music, and visible panty lines.

Yesterday, while wadding through an absurdly large and comprehensive collection of my backside for a photo of us from our recent trip to Las Vegas to include in a framed wall display, I found absolutely zero nice photos of the two of us together and settled instead on framing subliminal pornography.

But you know, all things considered, I guess it’s a good thing he’s an ass man, because after more than a year of dedicating my mammaries to breastfeeding, Mother Nature went ahead and rewarded me the chest of a 12-year-old boy.

Now, I've known some 12 yr. old boys whose boobs would make mine hide in embarrassment!

Ha ha! Before I even saw the pic or read what you wrote, I knew you were gonna say Mark took pics of your butt! Too funny! That's why I don't let Trey hold the camera. We'd have pics of boobs, any he could find, everywhere!

You gotta's pretty damn cute that your husband finds you so sexy. :) Everytime I walk by my husband, he grabs for something - whether ass or boob that also resembles a 12-year-old boy's...I get annoyed and swat his hand away, but the day he stops doing that is the day I wonder if he no longer finds me attractive. :) The love you share is precious!

you should be proud of that ass... I could only DREAM of having that kind of ass after a baby. Come to think of it... I could only dream of having that ass PRE-baby too.

with an ass and gams like those, do you blame him?

Who can blame the man. That is a pretty cute backside! BTW, where did you get your running shorts?

I agree with your other commentors - who could resist. Karla - you were tiny even then!!! I wish my butt looked that good. You are way too cute :)

And it is really sweet that you guys are still so in love. I hope I can have that one day.....

Very adorable video!!

You guys are far too kind! :)

Annonymous: Those shorts are from Lululemon. I've been meaning to write about how much I love them! They're chalked full of great running features. Thanks for the reminder.

Totally scored those running shorts off ebay. Now if only my legs were as lovely as yours! Maybe when I am as focussed on my half training as you are!

Nice butt! It's got me wondering...whenever MY husband has the camera...he's taking pictures of our son OR our dog. Should I be insulted???

Waiting for Lululemon to come to the U.S. Great shorts.

The picture is gorgeous.

I gotta say, you're dang cute in those shorts. And I love that your husband takes all those pictures of your backside. Just had to comment and say, "Aahhhhhhhh...."

Well, at least he takes pictures of you. One month away, not one photo taken of me by him. Cameras are foreign entities to some males.
