I’ll show you some of the many images I took at Josh’s birthday party last Saturday. I never saw one kid get so many presents. He seemed to take it all in stride however and was appreciative of each and ever gift. With two loving parents, four doting grand parents and three uncles he does not want for presents at a birthday celebration.
Gabby took it all in and kept herself busy with her toys. She was passed from grandma to grandma so she never lacked for attention during the evening. We had a wonderful dinner with of course cake and ice cream. It was a great night and fun to be with Ben’s side of the family. Mark and Taylor also made the celebration.
As you can see I have some competition at family gatherings. For as little time as she has had to practice Angie does a great job with her photography. She made the croutons, Cesar dressing and everything else from scratch. I can say in total objectivity it was a magnificent meal.
Ever the attentive Father, Ben has some fun with Josh before taking him upstairs for his nightly routine. It was a great evening and fun to watch the little guy grow up.
I am off today as it is the day of my procedure lovingly known as the “rotor router” procedure. 😦 I don’t go to the hospital until Noon and then I am scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. session. So the last time I had anything to eat was yesterday morning’s breakfast. Now there is no concern about me starving, I could live for a year if I had too, but I can tell you I am damn hungry and probably will be more so before it is all over.
That’s all I’ll bore you with today. Enjoy your Monday. I doubt I’ll be taking any images today but you never know. Thanks for stopping by. Be careful.
HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY JOSHUA!!
What a wonderful day that was. We get to celebrate his birthday this afternoon. Hope to have some images for you tomorrow. The image above is Josh when he was about 18 minutes old.
Enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
Last Monday Jeanne and I went to the annual Dubuque Labor Day Parade. It is a nice parade and even though I know you cannot get quality shots because of all the background clutter and the time of day it is held, I still like to shoot images at a parade. Above Joshua is concerned about when the parade is going to start. He likes parades because of the candy he gets, the loud sirens, and the shiny flashing lights from the emergency vehicles.
Eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first parade vehicle, Josh peers down the street. Notice Angie’s hand firmly attached to his shirt. 🙂 It was a beautiful day with a bright blue sky and lots of puffy white clouds. The temperature was in the mid 60s and it was really comfortable except when the sun came out from behind a cloud and then it got a little warm.
Yes that is a little poodle with (I assume) food coloring or some other type of dye on it. It got everyone’s attention when it went by. He/she didn’t seem to mind the discoloration and just enjoyed the walk.
Well it’s off to Clarence Iowa this morning to shoot the wedding. What light set up should I use. Which lens should I use to get the best image. It’s going to be in the 90s and that means I’m going to melt. 😦
I was talking with two of my friends yesterday talking about my stress level with this shoot and one of them reminded me that it is a lot easier shooting a wedding with digital than with film. Can you imagine the film not advancing or shooting 36 exposures only to find out there was no film in the camera or it had come off the sprocket. I’ve had both of those things happen to me. I shot a whole roll of film in Yellow Stone only to find out the film had slipped off the take up reel. Ugh!
Thanks for checking in on the blog. I appreciate you. Enjoy your day and be careful.
