When is a Wedding Photographer not.......

.......a Wedding Photographer? When he's off duty and just shooting pictures for fun. And such it was when Sue and I went to Craig and Laura's wedding on Saturday. "Uncle John," said Craig, "We're not having any wedding photos, you are having a day off to enjoy the wedding!" And so it was. Karl attempted a discrete image of the ceremony, which he followed up with a spectacular leap into thin air and a crash to the ground, sending his chair flying at the same time. Awesome photographic technique and his Pentax camera survived it all. Sue thought we should shoot some fun pictures anyway, and I always have a camera attached wherever I go, so we shot some images as well.

Sue was using a Fuji F50 compact with flash and I took the Pentax K-3 II, with SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm and SMC Pentax-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited lenses. Travelling light. In the event, a good time was had by all and the albums of images on Facebook seem to be liked as well. So, no stress, no expectations and a few good pictures, many shots at very high ISO as I didn't want to use flash. Oh, and a wedding as well! What better way to spend a Saturday. Congratulations to Craig and Laura! Smile

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
