Picture Post, Sunday September 23, 2007

Has there ever been a wedding in man's recorded history that started on time?

I knew it was going to be a long day yesterday when I saw the bride of the wedding that I was photographing in the halls of the church in blue jeans and the very time the wedding was supposed to start.

It eventually began and was a truly beautiful wedding. I had lots of fun and shot 329 pictures.

They should have enough good ones from that many to keep them happy.

I loaded them onto the computer and immediately copied them to an external hard drive too, as soon as I got home.

It will probably take me a couple of weeks in the evenings to get them all prepared, some have red eyed people and some just need brightness adjusted, but that many is going to take a good bit of time to work on.

I had fun, and was glad to do it. Plus, they had lasagna catered from Olive Garden and I had a couple of hunks when everyone else was eating.

I'll try to put up a couple of the pics here as I get some prepared, and I'd like to ask their permission, though it shouldn't matter. It's not like any of you know this couple, but I'd like to be sure anyway.

So today I'm giving you a couple of other photos that I've worked on recently since I'm not going to put up any wedding photos for a few days at least.

Both photos were taken at different locations on the Indian River Lagoon, our section of the Intracoastal Waterway.

The black and white one looked like a moonlight on the water photo, even in color, so I adjusted it in Elements to kinda make it look like either one, the sun or moon.

I really like how that one turned out.

The second photo, I just loved the rays of sun on the left, but also that big mass of dark cloud separating the two lit sections.

Have a great Sunday folks.

I have a really nice photo of a flower growing wild in a vacant lot across the street from our home, and I posted it today on my John's Daily Digital Images blog if y'all care to go over and see it.

the BnW is really a classic wonder you are proud of it ....I love the way sun's rays are reflecting on the waters in both the shots!!!

Love the photos. I think anyone would be proud to have that top one on their wall. I like the frame effect, too.

pictures of family and friends are fair game...but if my wedding photographer posted pictures of me and mine without asking I would not be happy....just saying.

I love the top one.

Thank you everyone.

katherine, I appreciate your comment. Like I said, I don't think it would be a problem, I've known these people for ten years, but I want to make sure before posting any of the pictures. If they prefer I didn't, I wanted to ask about posting some photos like the bride's and groom's hands together showing rings, I got a couple of really nice shots of the train on the girl's dress and other photos with no faces or any way of identifying individuals in the photos.

Loved the canna lily shot. (You've just taught me a new flower name.)

I think there's some meaning to that picture. Sometimes beautiful things grow unusual spots. And if we stop to take a look...we are blessed...and uplifted.

So you did a wedding! That sounds fun...and busy! I just posed about a Funeral!

They are a couple of real beauties Jam.
