Upstate Weekend Part Two

Ok, this post is a little side story to the rest of the weekend upstate, before and after Kristine and Warren's wedding day. James Ravenell, who acted as my guest photographer at the wedding, had a wedding of his own to shoot the day before, where I acted as his quest photographer.

Everyday you should try to learn something new. That weekend I learned a few important lessons that I want to share with you. The following I picked up at the wedding I shot with James that Friday.

1. While going down the stairs of the Groom's townhouse, look out for uneven
steps. You just might sprain your right ankle in the process if you're not careful.

2. While taking photos in front of the church after the ceremony, during
the Fall season, keep an watchful eye out for a honeycomb on the ground
that have fallen from the nearby trees. You just might sprain your
right ankle for the second time in the same day if you're not careful.

3. While limping along, holding an off camera flash for the main photographer,
on a well kept, sloped lawn, in front of the Bride's parents home, keep an
watchful eye out for dips under the grass. You just might sprain your already
swollen , pain laced, right ankle for the third time in the same day if you're
not careful.

4. After spraining the same ankle 3 times in one day you feel like a total a@#!

Almost done.

My last lesson of the weekend I also picked up with James, are you starting to notice seeing a pattern? Thankfully, I think, this lesson came the next day on the way home, after Kristine and Warren's wedding.

Never, Never, Never leave Rhinebeck, New York 12:30 in the am and get on the Taconic State Parkway with the needle of the gas gauge sitting on "E" That's really not a good thing to do.
No.... We didn't run out of gas, if you count fumes as gas. But we came close enough that while taking 3 to 4 mile drives off exits, and down roads that look like outer space minus the stars, thoughts of movies like "Wrong Turn" and "The Hills Have Eyes" came to mind.
Not a good thing.

I need to be attended to mentally. If you don't mind, who are you TD?

Whatup Rob, we never actually met back in the day (late 80's), but I'm sure our names came up in conversations with a mutual acquaintance. Anyway, just wanted to say that I really dig your photography. It is on point.
