Please Save Pull Tabs

Well, isn't this special. I was tagged in a little bit of online fun by Curious Girl. It goes like this:

1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll down to your 10th photo.
3. Post the photo and the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 people to play along.

Okay, first of all, this is picture 11. I cheated already. But the 10th picture was way out of focus. So, we've got nuns asking for pull-tabs instead. God, bless Sister Marie Attea and her cohorts for trying to save the world, one can of soda pop (couldn't be beer!) at a time.

The folder on my computer this Sister was plucked from is loaded to the brim with church architecture. Here in Buffalo, NY, we have mind-blowing examples of intricate architecture from the 1800's into the early 1900's. It's just that no one outside of Buffalo knows about it. So, I am known to traipse around the city with friends and cameras, soaking the glory in through my lens. The pull tab receptacle, outside a church, was a bonus I couldn't pass up.

I tag:
and YOU!


  1. Tomorrow. All my images are in the other computer. (I'm just glad you wern't asking us to find OLD pull tabs. Man. Talk about a time warp moment. :)


  2. Bless the sisters indeed! Fun post, Graciel! I'll have to look in my folders and see what I find there. :D

  3. Okay this will be fun. I'm going along. Love this picture and the story. I'll look up mine and post it tomorrow (after I'll be back from the hairdresser when I cut my hair). See you dear friend.

  4. Thanks for the open tag! It was a lot of fun. I've already posted mine here:


I always appreciate the time you take to comment on my blog. Thank you for stopping by. Peace from my heart to yours. xo, Graciel
