Yes, this is a tarantula. It was huge and it was in Austin. Shake are your shoes kiddies. You never know what’s in them. Remember that in additional to the spiders, scorpions like to hide in cool dark places. Like your sheets and your shoes. It’s Texas in the summer and the creepy crawlies are out [insert full body shiver here].
We shot a wedding in San Antonio that was beautiful and over the top. It had everything and MORE. Including Al Green (the man, himself), flown in from L.A. to sing “Love and Happiness” for their first dance…
Then at the end of the night, SPARKLERS were given to all the guests (that had been drinking for 6 hours) for the exit of the bride and groom. One of my FAVORITE things in the whole wide world is to stand in the middle of a bunch of drunk people pointing fire at me. It only singed my eyebrows a little this time. No serious harm done.
Then, the couple left in a helicopter. Remember that everyone has fire in their hands. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced a helicopter taking off – it’s really really windy.
Then people kinda freaked out…
Don’t mess with this guy. He’s serious about not letting people close to the helicopter. He might have been there for crowd control.
Then it made me look like this. Not my finest moment.
This is most certainly effective. But it’s making me really nervous to watch. Pretty impressive though, eh?
We photographed this little girl today that seemingly had no smiles in her. For a solid hour we watched her check out her surroundings and look curious, but nothing else. Seriously, it was mostly deadpan. Finally after sweating in the summer heat and a bit of quiet frustration, we got this sweet photo. I knew it was in there.
Due to my new toy, the Canon SD850 IS, I’m now armed with a delightful point and shoot camera that allows me to take pictures from a moving car. This may seem mundane to you (guy pushing a VW bug, fancy mohawk dude, or just a nice sunset), but it is thrilling for me. I took these three photos in 60 seconds from my car. While they aren’t stellar, they’re interesting goings-on in South Austin. This is something that I appreciate. So, here they are and I promise much more to come. If you have something fun to share that you caught on the fly, let me know.
I’ve had a myriad of problem with my house this spring. Mostly due to the large amounts of rainfall we’ve had. Trees keep falling, roof keeps leaking, dryer is broken now. So, Aaron had to dry his clothes outside. But it rained. So they’re still out there. He’s thrilled. I’m working on fixing these problems just as fast as I can. I’ll be starting a fund soon to save my house. OK, enough of the pity party.
