Pictures Of A Day In The Life Of A Loan Officer

Shortly after Joe passed, I upgraded from film to a digital camera (Cannon Rebel). Photography was one of my hobbies before Joe and I became a couple and I quickly returned to it after he passed.  It was a casual hobby the first year but once I got laid off,  at the start of the 2nd year, I was back into photography full force.

Photography brings me such peace and joy.

Most of the time, I have either the point and shoot or the Cannon by my side. I had the point and shoot at work with me when I looked out my window and saw my credit union members munching on leafy greens, smooching and singing. So I grabbed the camera and started shooting Scarlet, Rhett, Ashley and Al (as in Pacino).

Here is a rare glimpse into a loan officer’s day at work.  (Excuse the glare from my window.)


Rhett Butler searching for leafy greens
“Fiddle-dee, dee – It’s Rhett Butler!”
"Frankly my dear, I do give a damn....I do, I do, I do."
“Frankly my dear, I do give a damn….I do, I do, I do.”
Scarlet & Rhett - Together At Last.

Here Come Ashley!
Here Comes Ashley!

A Few Minutes Later…

Shortly after I took the pictures, I heard singing – very loud singing.  I looked outside to see if there was a bird in the trees or in one of the bushes by the air conditioner. Imagine my surprise when I realized the serenade was literally coming from outside my window.  So without further adieu…

“Say hello to my little friend.”  I call him Al.



Sorry if you actually thought I was going to violate privacy laws and reveal all the nitty-gritty details of what goes on at work.

Thank You

Thank you God for blessing me with a job where I have a spectacular view – all created by you.

Rommie & Michele’s Backyard Safari Adventure – “Doe A Deer”

Well, I do not know why Mom called this “Rommie & Michele’s Backyard Safari Adventure” as I was asleep in the foyer when this happened. Shame on Mom for not waking me so I could greet my guests.

Mom said she took most of these pictures through the sliding glass door as she was afraid opening it would scare them off.  She did manage to quietly slide it open and snap a few picture.

Mom and I are so blessed because not everyone has a scenic view like we do.  So I hope you enjoy Mom’s snapshots.

Love, Hugs and Sloppy Wet Kisses to all!
