party at the park and a small treatise on photography
On Saturday, we spent the afternoon at Valley Fair, the local amusement park. We were able to go for free (there was even a meal provided) thanks to the incredible man you see below.
The incredible man is Tim's boss and a man who owns a small business. Dave is an incredible person who cares immensely for his employees and treats them well.
The incredible man is married to a remarkable woman. They are a blessing to our lives.
The woman hamming it up in the shot above is their oldest daughter Wendy. Wendy was a year behind me and attended the same college as Tim and I. Little did we know that someday, Tim would work for her Dad.
Dave's cousin is a funny man and works as a shop manager for the company. He talks with his hands and is always fun to photograph.
Dave's youngest son. His girls are great friends with our girls. When Tim started with Dave's company Evan was 16 and had hair. :)
We did buy a few drinks and one small pizza during the day. Here K gets a giant Icee. :)
As anyone who follows this blog for long soon realizes, I prefer black and white. I think that you can define what you are saying in a much more meaningful way in black and white when you aren't distracted by color. Sometimes I post images in color - because the image really is about color (such as certain flowers) or to show you something specific such as the fabric chosen for a dress. However, this shot is in color because the color makes the composition something beautiful. I don't typically find color beautiful in photography but here I do. :)
I am sorry, I've been nonexistent. School is going well but it is very busy. In addition, I've been trying to work up the shots from a fiftieth anniversary photo shoot. Here is a couple of candids of a grandchild that I really like.
