Catching Up

Anyone out there still reading? I wouldn't blame you if you weren't. :-) If blogging was a job I would have been fired long ago. But once again I am resolving to do better. I even have a few blog topics I am putting in reserve for the moment.

But before I move on to any of those topics I thought I would share a few events from last weekend. Last Friday afternoon, my friend Andrew and I took engagement pictures for my roommate and her fiance. Andrew ended up taking most of the pictures and I became more of the photographers assistant... and the getaway driver. :-) We went to a couple of fancy areas of town (including a golf course and yacht club) where we weren't technically supposed to be... and we certainly couldn't just park in the grass... so I drove around part of the time while they took pictures. Here is one of the pictures that I took.

Not the greatest... but not terrible. The ones that Andrew took are much better. I have a very nice camera... but I have serious lens envy. My lens is not bad... but it is not as nice as I would like either. Here is Andrew's lens... and Andrew.

I have already added it to my wish list on Amazon. Now I just need to come up with the $600 and the justification for purchasing it. :-)

We took photos for probably two hours in different places in town and in several different outfits. It was a lot of fun and I think they got some great pictures to use.

On Saturday my parents came into town and my brother offered my parents tickets to the home opener for my college alma mater... the University of Alabama. My mom wasn't interested in going so my dad and I went to the game. We won 52-6 so it was not the world's most exciting game but we had a lot of fun.

I hope everyone else is having a great week. On top of being post lazy I have also been comment lazy... but I promise I am still reading.

That lens is huge! I guess that's not really a good one to just throw in the diaper bag. :)

I have definite camera envy too! Mine is puny :o)

I like your picture, I thought it was something off photobucket or something until I read the text.

Nice to read your voice.
