    Default Photos for PP's

    So I just got a letter from my main PP 'R' and I am really surprised at how much he liked the photos I sent. He told me in a recent letter that he has always wanted to visit Puerto Rico, so I sent him some photos of the beaches there and such. I told him I sent them so he could have a mini-mental vacation lol He really seemed to enjoy them. More than I thought. I wasn't sure if he was going to thing that it was lame! He even said that he was going to visit the beach there "very soon". haha R said he loves getting photos of things outside and away from there.


    What have been you guy's experience with sending photos? I'm curious!

    My R LOVES pictures of anything and everything. I take him on day trips with me. Last set he got was of my trip to GI visit him. He likes everything.

    I got asked to send some prints of my art and my cat. But not outside places (so far). He gushed over both. I expected a passing "hey thanks!" but his reaction was very nice. I had told him I know he doesn't have a lot of space, so he can trash them when he's done looking at them. He told me I was crazy. lol I like it when people surprise me in good ways.
    How did your horse go over btw? My pal loved the raccoon doodle.

    I've sent all of my pp's a "trip to Vietnam" with some truly spectacular photos... everything, people, marketplace, street scenes, temples, Buddha statues, everything. One of my pp's told me it made him get a tear in his eye. The other one said he shared them with other guys and they all liked it. I've also done this with "the Oregon coast."

    I'm not very into pics of myself at all so I try to keep that to a real minumum as in one per lifetime is enough, lol, here... look at the pretty trees, ha ha ha!

    lol he wrote in the margins of the paper,"The drawing looks like a zebra lol JK It's cute."


    And yeah, I sent him photos of my dog with her head out the car window with the wind in her face. He thought that was really funny lol

    I don't take pictures unless told to. It just doesn't occur to me most of the time. The only pictures I have of my only sister's wedding, are ones other people took. ><

    It all depends who i am writing but basically i send pics of just about everything, trying to share a story. I have made a cuppa and cake and invited him to share, sent pics of our "dinner date" while we were on the phone together. Sent photo's of holidays, birthday, Christmas celebrations, family gatherings and BBQ's, improvements i have made around the house. The area i live, bird parks, animals parks, wildlife, flowers and anything he has sent as a gift. I have taken pics of nature at it's finest, a large spiders web full of dew on a summers day. Fireworks celebrations, carnivals, a clear night sky full of stars, my animals, including the snake, lizards, guinea pigs and what was the new chook house the kids built etc. I do not restrict myself on the pics i send because i know how valued they are and what may seem silly or insignificant to us many times is relished by them. So many times i have known my mate to go over pics i have sent years after the fact and just have some quiet time and place to escape when the going gets tough.


    Sometimes the simplest things we forget they do not see.....i cannot tell you how many times i am told to send more pics. So snap away and send what you see through your eye's as well as the things that may be of interest to them, as i know without a doubt it will be appreciated.

    The PP I mostly send phtoto's to is J and he reaaaaallly likes it. He carries them with him to work the first couple of days when he receives them. For the inmates the photo's are a way to be in the outside world for a few moments. so yeah, they are happy to receive them.

    I always try to send B. a few pictures with every letter.

    With my last letter I sent her some pictures of my vacation on the little greek Island where my parents are building a house. I made pictures of the ocean because she loves the ocean very much. One picture is showing a ferry boat and she said to me that she is having this picture standing on her table in her cubicle because that way she can dream herself out of prison and to the ocean.
