The End of a Decade — 10 Years, 10 Elvis Pictures

How do you link Elvis and the years in the last decade? By finding pictures of Elvis with text on them that includes a year – calendars, Elvis Week logos, Photoshop creations, etc.

Then you remove all the text but the year.

 

These stamps come from Mustique, a small private island that is one of the Grenadines, a chain of islands in the West Indies. I wouldn’t mind having a strip of these.

 

You may recognize this as one of the many calendars featuring photos of Elvis taken by Al Wertheimer. They put a bit of color into this iconic Elvis photo.

 

I like the use of an Elvis silhouette in addition to a nice Elvis photo on this one.

 

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen this picture before, but it’s in my files now. I like the scarf around Elvis’ neck.

 

I cropped and deleted parts of the original to get this. Apologies to Sandi Fox. She does nice work.

 

It also took some clean-up here to result in this. I’m glad I could save the silver and blue swirl that compliments Elvis’ jumpsuit. 2015 is my favorite picture, so far.

 

In an ElvisBlog article about Elvis caricatures, I included a quote about his sleepy-eyed look. It said, “It’s the low riding eyelids… the confidence and control factor half-mast eyes seem to exude.”

Elvis had that going here, didn’t he?

 

How cool is this? 2017 is my new favorite, slightly ahead of 2015.

 

This is another picture I don’t have in my files. Elvis has got some big-time sideburns goin’ here.

 

You could Photoshop this one and have Elvis smoking a pipe. If anybody can do that, please send me a copy.

 

This must be a picture from “Love Me Tender.” Serious-looking Elvis.

 

While I was researching this, I found a lot of earlier years, too.  There will probably be other decade pictorials like this in the future.

 

 

 

And I hope 2020 will be a great year for all of you, too.
