I did it. I was a guest at a wedding, and I took pictures on my cell phone. It was a lot of fun. Here’s a few pictures!
Joy and I drove to Visalia, CA this past weekend where she used to live when she was really young. (You’ve either heard of Visalia, or you haven’t. Strangely, I somehow know a TON of people who’ve heard of, been to, or lived in this tiny little town in the middle of central CA…) Anyways Joy still has lots of family in Visalia so we go there often. But this time we made the trip with our puppy Chloe, which was fun. Chloe chased a frog and a toad, which was very cute. But of course I didn’t let her harm them, I caught them and released them to a safe place. :-) (I still haven’t heard anybody vote for puppy pictures on the blog yet… :-P)
…And I got to be a guest at a wedding for the first time in 5-6 years.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, check this out- Joy made the jewelry for her cousin Emily (the bride) The necklace and the, um, bangle… Everybody complimented the bride on how beautiful she looked, and Joy got lots of compliments on the jewelry. I think it might be time to get Joy an Etsy account, mmm?
Some of the following images were taken on my new Samsung Galaxy, (phone) and some were taken on my normal camera.
I also shot a bit of slide film on my circa-1980 FM2, and we’ll see how that turns out.
Check back soon for more recent wedding photos!! I’m going backwards in chronological order here, and I’ve got a TON of stuff to post… ALSO, since we’re kinda on the topic of cameras and getting images with whatever camera you have laying around: I will be giving a “CameraTalk” lecture / discussion next week at the Riverside SMUG! Click here for the Facebook event page… It will “focus” (pun inevitable) on the subjects of metering and exposure, autofocus and camera “processing”… (white balance, picture styles, etc.) It should be an interesting evening! (It’s free for a reason, though! No guarantees on my abilities as a public speaker! I’ve been known to describe complex camera functions as “thingies”, “etc… ;-)
