    some shots for a friend

    two young birds in love...my friend's son and his chickie who was visiting from the southwest.

    I think we hear wedding bells in the distance...(hoping)

    It was my first attempt at taking pics of a couple...I found that good shots quickly turned to bad shots when one person's expressions (blinking funny faces and such) is off.

    (which generally tends to be why Larry and I hardly have shots with each other that are worth looking at. In 5 years we have been married ---there's been maybe 6 or 7 where we are both looking at the camera and we look undrugged-lol)

    Any way...I thought these weren't too bad for a first go at a real attempt and shooting a couple...opinions ot thought s are ALWAYS appreciated...especially in this land of the unknown...vegetables are so much more predictable...

    Oh I love these

    Such a dreamy romantic feel. I think your friend will be very pleased.

    And I completely agree with you on the good shot/bad shot thing. My husband and I have about 2, been married 5 years, together for 8

    I'll bet they absolutely love these shots. Each one captured the same emotion(love) but in different ways. Nice work.

    Great work, they all have a nice feel to them. I like the first shot the best too - maybe the background is a little distracting but the expressions on their faces is excellent. I'm sure they will be very happy with all of them.
