Wedding Albums

I have been working on some wedding albums recently. I hope to get the wedding website area polished up with some better examples over the next few months. In the meantime, here is a photo from the first page of the Brewer Wedding album.



In the kitchen area we have a basket that the cats take turns laying in. This time it was Ai’s turn. They are quite the models, don’t you think?


Chicago O'Hare

On our way out to Phoenix, we had a layover in Chicago. Long enough for us to venture down into the tunnel that runs between the concourses. I have always been fascinated by this light show and had to drag Lisa down to see it herself. The last picture is a self portrait of the two of us on the moving sidewalk with our reflection in the ceiling.


Jim Thorpe

It has been quite a long time since I have updated the blog. Have been real busy with fall sports, wedding orders, pictorial directory and Seniors. Anyways, Lisa and I took some time together to venture out to Jim Thorpe and do some browsing up and down the streets. While she shopped in some of the more odiferous stores, I spent some time with the camera taking some shots of the architecture. Well, I also couldn’t resist taking a photo of Lisa outside of one of the shops too. Enjoy.



On our way back home from our 21st wedding anniversary dinner, Lisa and I spotted this interesting cloud formation while we were picking up a movie at Walmart. Very interesting design, perhaps I may use it on a picture collage project in the future.


Another Cat Day

Spent a couple of minutes with Victoria and one of the cats so that I could post some new pictures. Sakura is in the clothes hamper on top of the clothes. We moved her around the house in this vessel until we got some good light coming in through a window and reflecting off of the white walls in the bathroom. She loves all of the attention we give her and is such a good sport to put up with our shenanigans.



Life hasn’t slowed down since June of last year. Until this weekend as I get ready for a wedding on Valentine’s day. So I did a lot of bills and catching up, such as cleaning the office and a little bit of the attic storage area. Got 12 hours of sleep last night and a good 1.5 hour nap this afternoon. So this evening I was not in the mood to continue doing bills. I took out the camera and spent about 3 hours taken pictures of marbles. This is a real challenge, as the surface is very reflective and getting glare and ghosting to a minimum takes some work. Put into practice some of my lighting rules, such as hard lights are best for textures and the further away the light, the harder it is. Anyways, that and a copious amount of black cinefoil and foam board with some tricky cutouts gave me some acceptable results. Still can’t get the full 3D look of the marbles into the pictures yet, but now I have a better handle on the lighting.


The passing shower rewarded us with an unexpectedly bright rainbow tonight.
