Bloggers Photographs

This collage shows most of the people on my blogroll, there are a

couple of dual shots, some who have managed to maintain there
secret identities, and a few that for some reason Picassa would
not put into the file I had opened.

There are doubtless many bloggers who have larger blog rolls than I,
but I think it unlikely that there are a better lookin' bunch than those
shown here.

In case you have trouble recognizing them from top left we have;
Ann, Big Dave, Carolyn, Christina, Cliff Morrow, aka Cliff Hanger,
Della, Gwen, Jack K.

2nd row; Ken, fergiesfabfotos, Jacqui, wife #1 MIA, Jamie Dawn, Jan
Jenna, grand daughter just married also MIA, Jerry, who I thought
wasn't here so he featured below, Jim, in his two guises.

3rd row; already featured the Davies family, John Earle, Judy, Jules
famous blue bra, Junie, Karen, Katherine, and Laurie.

4th row; Lee another Aussie, Buggs Butt, Lucy, Marcus, my son,
Margaret, Aussie friend, Maria, I think my first reader (outside of
family) Marti, Meow, another Aussie,

5th row; Merle, my Sister, Miss Cellania, Musikdude, Lucy, aka TLP,
Olive, 107 YO Aussie, Pamela, why did you send me this photo
Pamela? the other is nicer, Peter holtieshouse and daughter Vicki MIA.

6th row; Poopie, Rachel, Rhee, Robyn, another Aussie, Sandy AIP,
Sharon, MIA hurry back Sharon, Steve G, Suzz disguised as a Lily,

7th row; Theresa, Trucker Bob, 4 Aussies in a row, Val, Wazza, me
old mate, Willowtree, of "A dingo's got my Barbie", Zac, my grandson
who is currently in England, Zinnia, who at least uses a flower of the
same name to hide her identity, then another collage.

8th row; is a collage then a repeat of the 1st row.

Mike, of the Hammer fame, posted this picture of himself then turned
around (no not physically... phew..) and denied that it was him, as a
long time reader of his blog I have to say this is exactly as I pictured
him, so you be the judge.

Some others have managed to hide behind their various disguises,
like Joy, who only shows us "Pieces of me" - Ivy, who hides behind
a childhood image - Vickie, is another lady who has managed to
keep her identity hidden, she posted this pic recently calling it
"just tired" rest easy Vickie, this is you to us, always lovely. -
Ivy's sister Jules who hides behind a lovely blue bra. -
Suzz and Zinnia who both choose to disguise themselves
as flowers. - and Walker, who uses a mask to mask his identity, -
Big Dave choose to show us a Little Dave image.

The Davies family have been close friends all their lives, their Dad was
my best mate for most of our lives, sadly Al is no longer with us.
Fom the left; Joanne aka Little Jen of "Eight is enough"
Donna, aka Skippy of; "Skippy's Den"
Jen, Mother to the surrounding gang, she shares her blog with Cazz.
And Gary of "Gs Spot"
Sharing this spot is Gwen who is Jan's best friend.
And finally Jerry aka LZ our honorary Aussie, because he writes such
great posts about his visit here a couple of years ago.

It's legend time now, we have Superman's girlfriend and equal
Lois Lane, - The one and only OL' Hoss, aka Gene Maudlin, -
And finally Judy , aka kenju who was my second reader I think.

My good friend Tom, aka Bornfool, Tom excuse is that he was
born on April 1st, he is shown here with WordWhiz who is MIA-
The lovely Monty of "the daily bitch". -
John Earle who admits that he was once sexy.

Doug Bagley, - A fellow Aussie Davo, - and Robyn another Aussie.

Raggedy managed to hibernate her site before I collected a photo.
Sudiegirl in a rare appearance. And the ever elusive Walker, could
he be "the ghost who walks?" he said he had loaned out his only
picture to Nick Nolte a while back.

A last minute update folks,
here is the elusive Raggedy

I think I finally convinced Picassa who was boss of this outfit and
managed to do a collage of the missing bloggers.

A grab bag of shots, see if you can pick the ones lucky enough to come
out on the top of the pack in this lot.

Somehow it doesn't surprise me that I'm the only one baring my boobs.

kenju said...

What a great idea! I am glad to see that I made the post, but maybe you need a newer image - now that I have joined the ranks of grey-haired women. I'll send one in a minute.

Marti said...

That is wonderful! I am so honored to be included - thank you!

Hale McKay said...

Peter, I think The Hammer captures my better side. (LOL)

Hale McKay said...

...And , oh by the way, a great idea for a post.

Miss Cellania said...

Thhis is great! I recognized quite a few, and I'm glad to find out what a few more look like! Thanks, Peter.

Cliff Morrow said...

Hey Peter, this post plus the one on your picture blog are outstanding. I can't help but feel that you sir, need something to do. WOW! What a time consuming job. You are great. I should give you a more recent photo. I don't have one on hand but I'll tell you what, if you can find a pic of Tom Selleck...we look so close to the same that folks will never know.

Lee said...

I had as much fun going through this post as you obviously had putting it together, Peter. :)

Jim said...

Hi Peter -- This is wonderful, thanks for including me.
My drawn picture is one I have been drawing since the first or second grade. I used to draw a horse to go with me but long ago I have forgotten how to grow horses.
That second picture makes me look handsome, maybe I should change profile pictures?
Thanks again, I enjoyed seeing all of your blogger friends, or their images that portray some of their feelings about life.

Meow said...

Peter ... me thinks you have too much time on your hands !!
But, you did a wonderful job, what a handsome bunch of blogger friends you have (me included, of course !!)
Thanks for all that work ... it's amazing !!
Hope the eye has 100% recovered.
Take care, Meow

JunieRose2005 said...


I enjoyed this a lot! You got a lot of friends , don't you!!


PS- You didn't have trouble finding a pic of me, did ya? ;)

Katherine said...

Wow, great job! Very creative and I must agree that we all look so fab. :)

Pamela said...

ha ha ha ha ha... you did indeed find a monkey in the trunk, didn't you.

Rachel said...

This was lovely Peter!! A wonderful collage of all the bloggers!! Cool indeed!!

I gotta say though that my photo is quite old...ahem...and (stealing from Cliff) if you post a picture of Reese Witherspoon we are so close that no one will know the difference!! (in my dreams!!!)

Big Dave T said...

Hmmmmm, I should have sent you my FIRST blogger profile pic, which looks more like me now. But when I had that posted on my blog, nobody came to comment! I only had to assume it was my picture scaring folks away. Hence my little boy picture. If you do this again some time in the future, I'll have to see if I can dig up my old profile pic.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Gee whillikers, Peter. This is some kind of piece of work. Must have taken you days and days, collecting and collaging.....

Donna said...

Hi Peter,

this is fantastic. You are sooo clever.


Val said...

Well, THAT was a different idea! What fun, I may try something similar with my own blogroll, and using the wonderful Picasa (free too!). How nice that you fossicked around for that photo of me - I had forgotten it was on a long-neglected web page.

Walker said...

That's a fine looking bunch and I liked the way you set it up.
I got stuck on the third row for a while but managed to force myself past it. LOL

Have a nice day

Puss-in-Boots said...

What a lovely looking bunch we are! What a good idea, Peter. I can say that because my picture (taken after a wine or three) is so small no-one would recognise it...thank God!

Jeanette said...

Hi Peter,
Great post, Must have taken you many hrs gathering and putting all the photo's together to make this collage. Take Care Jan

Laurie said...

Wow!!!!!!! That's just great!!

Carolyn said...

It's always nice to put a face w/the name. I change pics so often though... lol!

Jamie Dawn said...

I was beginning to think you'd forgotten me, but then I saw my blue bra on display.
Oh, NO! That wasn't me, but I have a bra just like that.

You did a great job on this very interesting post.
I loved seeing all the pics of your blog buddies.
I know many of them too!

Joy Des Jardins said...

WOW, what a great collage Peter. Jules seems pretty cool about her blue boobs front and center....good for her.

Yeah, I'm an enigma alright. Actually that picture is used for my poetry pieces because that's about the age when I first started to seriously write poetry....21 years old. Times change...and you'll see an updated pic of me and my granddaughter on my most recent post. Don't get any ideas Mister! I'm not much of a picture person these days....but I love ones of everyone else. Really nice post Peter... Hugs, Joy

Anonymous said...

Oh yes,I am impressed. This is a great idea. Of course I let out a sigh of relief when I found my photo. I was afraid there wouldn't be one because I don't have one of those little identifying thinga-ma-jigs next to my comments.

Maria said...

Oops, I am not anonymous. . . it's Maria from the Mojave Desert. Peter, by now you know my ego would never allow me to be anonymous!

Anonymous said...

Peter, Another fine post. You handle blogging much better than most of us.

Raggedy said...

You found me...tee hee
We share many of the same blog buddies so I enjoyed this post.

Granny said...

Whatever is happening with my computer is still happening. I can see about half of the individual photos but not the collage.

Assuming I'm the Ann you're talking about, thanks for including me.
