A Place to Get Food- #2 in a Series- Wenatchee, WA

Wenatchee, WA.  This photo is now hanging over my bed as of last week.  Not sure how my dreams will be affected.  I like the colors. Full name is EZ’s Burger Deluxe on Wenatchee Ave.  I was visiting my brother in Okanogan, WA.  Shot it from the parking lot across the street.

Selected by Juror Chris Jordan for Works of Man show- Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. Spring 2009


Backlit Bridal Party in Baseball Dugout

 

 

Juniata College, Huntingdon, PA.  A relaxed bridal party shot on campus, Saturday’s wedding.  Both bride and groom are alumni, as are some of the attendants, too.  The groom played baseball and football and the bride a serious runner (just signed on to run the Boston Marathon again, oh my)

Bright sun, green mountains and blue sky. A happy couple.  A perfect day.   Wishing them every happiness, always!  


You know you make me wanna (Shout!), Kick my heels up and (Shout!)

“Throw my hands up and (Shout!)”

SHOUT- Originally recorded by the Isley Brothers in 1959- Here Nancy and friend Eric kick up their heels at Lauren and Jesse’s wedding in Alexandria, PA. It was fun to catch them mid-air.

(I know, the woman’s legs under Eric confuse the photo but I liked the effort and energy of their enthusiastic dancing)

Bridesmaid Nancy and friend Eric dance to SHOUT!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces

A flash in the dark.  I try to use available light most times and avoid flash.   Uncle Matty in from Zagreb with an armful of two nephews and a niece. Jack, Anna and Michael.  Maura Clare looking on from the front porch steps at La and James’ home.

I chose this one for the weekly photo challenge because I thought the faces expressed the most emotion, even if the light of the flash wasn’t the best light on them.


Uncle Frank Put the Engine in the 1953 Chevy

It is an amazing skill Uncle Frank has- refurbishing old cars. Did you see his 1933 Buick?

The car he is working on now is a year younger than me!   He’s got the engine in now. I am fascinated by the ability to do such work.  Watch for future updates as he takes this baby on the road.

And the interior is from a Cadillac.  I wouldn’t know where to begin.  It is going to be a beauty!  Shot in his West Mifflin garage.


What I Found Across from School

If you have followed me in the winter you might have seen the pink toilet in the snow.  I saw that one on the way to school.  This one not quite as dramatic and a different season but the view is directly from the school parking lot and the art room. You know how people’s garbage fascinates me!


Places to Get Food- #1 in a Series- Seaside, Florida

Another little project I started a few years back.  This one is in Seaside Florida.  Not a WordPress challenge, but my own. I love the table and two chairs.

And thanks for taking time to vote- 330+ blog views on Monday- Poll results- 12 people voted for Octopus photo and 8 voted for the Sunflower Seed Roll.   


Weekly Photo Challenge: Textured

How something feels.  Or looks like it feels.  That’s what I teach the kids at school as texture is one of the art elements.   Sometimes we rub a crayon on paper to capture texture, like the bottom of our shoes.   Perused the WPC posts for inspiration and a lot of ancient stone walls, Roman ruins were possibilities from the archives.  Murphy the airedale’s coat came to mind.  I was in the Croatian files last night and found something from the Zagreb Fish Market.  Then saw the breakfast roll.  Remembering how Matthew went to the bakery and brought it back.  Difficult to edit myself this late evening.   Decided to add the poll today as I would for the Keep or Pitch blog (on temporary hiatus)  Cast a vote- which photo exemplifies the  Weekly Photo Challenge: Textured ?  


Adriatic harvest.

Bumpy top breakfast roll.


Croatian Advertising

I had to look twice. Fortunately I was a passenger and could photograph it!


Vicky and Justin Get Married 9-10-11

Succop Butler Conservancy was the Venue

A beautiful day, filled with love and joy. Surrounded by family and friends, Vicky and Justin exchanged vows at St. Sebastian’s.  Almost a decade of loving one another and now they are married.  The rain held off and the sun shone down upon them!  It is fun to be a guest AND the photographer.  They gave me their gracious permission to put up a wedding photo for today’s post.  She wore her mother’s gown which she had altered.  Just a lovely day of being together and celebrating their marriage. xxooxx I wish them every happiness, always! The food was delicious(mushroom risotto, grouper stuffed with spinach, stuffed eggplant, roast zucchini and yellow squash and onion medley and the cookie table another post for another day.
