Whenever I go to a funeral it always amazes me that in one minute, everything is perfect for one person, and yet in that same minute, life completely falls apart for another person. All their hopes and dreams gone. And yet each is oblivious to the pain, and/or joy of the other. Amazing.

But sometimes, maybe we have gone back too much...

Let's Dance...

A cool shot from the wedding last Saturday.

I have a new obsession. It's social/ballroom & swing dancing, and I'm totally absorbed by it.

Big & Rachel...

I haven't posted anything in a while, because I've been crazy busy with several projects. The last two weekends I shot weddings.

The first one, was a disaster. Unfortunately, once again I allowed myself to be intimidated to the point that things just didn't go at all like they should have. But I'd rather not talk about it much.

This last one however, was probably the most enjoyable wedding that I have ever photographed. For the most part, it went pretty well. There were some things that I was not happy about, but we live and learn. "Big" as we call him, is my Nephew. He also used to work for me at the golf store, so we go a ways back. The photo above was one of my favorites from the event.

I bought four used Photogenic strobe lights the morning of the wedding. I got a great deal on them and they really saved the occasion. I shudder to think of how it might have turned out otherwise. But in any case, this is really cool, because I now have enough lights to completely set up a studio.
