Welcome to the Wedding

This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD IN AUGUST – YEAR 4.  The word is “connubial.”

Back in the day (not so long ago), we helped build a driveway Halloween haunt every year for the enjoyment of many neighborhood children (and from farther away when the word spread over the years).  The haunt of 2011 was probably the most ambitious and complex, telling a story of a jilted suitor, intrigue, murder, and lingering horror. The newly-wed couple posing in the photo below never left the wedding chapel, but graciously welcomed each guest.

This photo was taken on October 29, 2011.  Specs are:

Canon PowerShot SD770IS, ISO 80, f/2.8, 1/60 sec, 6.2 mm.

You had one job! — Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: January 28, 2018

This is our entry this week for  Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: January 28, 2018.

This photo shows an increasingly angry barefoot bride and her groom trying unsuccessfully to scatter pigeons for a wedding photo in front of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on a chilly and overcast day. Before taking this image, we saw them make at least a dozen unsuccessful runs through the disinterested pigeons. We have no idea what the bride was saying to the groom, but from the expressions and body language she shared between the runs, it was clear that the bride felt that the groom had just one job and that was to make the pigeons fly.


This photo was taken on September 19, 2016. Specs are:

Canon 100D, ISO 800, f/8.0, 1/160 sec, 40mm.
