Grandma Got Bank

Clearly I have been off the blogging track for the past week or so. The only explanation is that I’ve been busy with other things. Isn’t that weak? Well, to give myself a bit of a motivational boost I’m lowering my goal from posting every weekday to three times per week. That seems reasonable doesn’t it?

The photo posts are pretty quick to present, once the shot has been taken, edited, and uploaded, but it has also been requested that I write more like I used to or at least diversify my posts. I can’t argue with that and in fact, had been thinking the same thing myself.

For now, enjoy these photos of my grandma with a handful of one dollar bills. That ought to tide you over until I get some writing time. Just ask yourself, what was grandma doing with all those singles?

It’s Like Rain on Your Wedding Day

September 13

I planned this post in honor of what was supposed to be another rainy day, although it does not appear to be raining at the moment. It was a beautiful day that Dave and I took advantage of as we walked to downtown Mountain View for some gelato and to inquire about flu shots at the pharmacy. Sitting on the patio outside the gelato place after searching in vain for some shade, I remarked to Dave, “I feel like I’m on vacation here.”

I have to admit that, although we do need the rain, it is so very nice without it most of the time. Like, when one is in the mood for a walk or just simply needs to run an errand within walking distance and realizes, “pshaw, what the hell do I need a car for?”.

Despite another gorgeous day here, I once again post a photo from a rainy Minnesota day. The photo features the photographer who shot my cousin Rachel’s wedding, the bouquet, program, and I think even their rings. The light from the large looming window beside her and the rain drizzling down the glass made for a more emotional feel. Of course, I took a handful of shots to finally get this one, as is always the case.

The People at the Party in the Park

Since I’ve been running around Minneapolis and the surrounding metro area all week I haven’t been keeping up with my goal of daily photo posts. Therefore, I’m going to take a stab at posting this weekend in order to make up for it.

One of my goals in regards to photography is to improve the shots I take of people. Following are a couple of my favorites from the wedding:

Dave and Sarah congratulate each other on their achieved hilarity.

Spy!

Have I interrupted the pre-officiating conference? Maybe I have caught an attempt to convert Al to the church of officiating officiants and their official coefficients.
