Bridal Shower - November 2010

so in November I attended a bridal shower.  I took my camera mostly for my own practice.  I walked in and asked the bride's mother if I could take some photos.  She was so excited that someone brought a camera to the event and asked if I could take photos for her daughter.

Unexpected, about a week later, I received a $100 gift certificate from the Bride to be and her mother to the restaurant where the shower was held.    I think I had my first photography job!

afternoon lensbaby shots

Still practicing with the Lensbaby.  Since I was home today and it was another beautiful day, I took advantage of some afternoon sun.

A friend from work, as seen here--rob castro--let me borrow his lensbaby this weekend.  I had the a large part of the day to myself, so I went outside to my front lawn where there appears to be a crop of mushrooms growing. 

These shots of Savannah are her on the couch being a perfect blurred model for me.

just a series of black and white

I love black and white.  It seems, to me, so exposed; so simple.  It's there in front of you without color or distraction.  Simplicity in it's true form.

These were taking at the Huntington Library in Pasadena.  Enjoy more macros on your Monday at Sunday Stills.

How long can such beauty last when it is just  barely hanging from a vine?
