I’ve just come inside from the front lawn where my husband had called me to watch purple martins who were swooping low to the ground. A thunderstorm had just passed through and there seemed to be a hundred of the birds. The rain had caused thousands of gnats to hatch and it was a feeding frenzy out there. Quite exciting.
Tonight I’m posting people shots from this year’s Blog Fest which was held last weekend in Mathews, VA. I’ve never considered myself a portrait photographer so if you see yourself here and you dislike it, e-mail me and I’ll take it down.
I took many photos of people this year but not all of them came out to my liking which was disappointing. But here are some of my favorites.
Meg from Soup is Not a Finger Food. This was one of the first photos I took when I arrived. We were still wearing our name badges, I see.
This is Diane, from Asthma Girl. We were heading out for a sunset boat ride. I really love this photo of her.
Shelley, the Baroness. She always looks like a million bucks.
Anne Marie from Hillbilly Gothic, one of our co-hosts for Blog Fest. Fun fun fun.
Annie from The Tombstone Chronicler. Annie was one of the very first visitors to my blog back in late 2007. She’s got the most beautiful blue eyes.
Beth attended Blog Fest last year and came just for the beach party this year. I could never imagine myself going to a beach party in a bathing suit, but among this crowd I somehow felt fine about it.
The margaritas helped.
And finally, Laurie from Fooleryland, who came with her husband Chaz and their two beautiful daughters. This was taken at the White Dog Cafe in Mathews. In the background you can see our waiter, Eric who is excellent at what he does for a living. He kept us laughing. (As if we needed any help doing that).
Until tomorrow (hopefully), my friends . . .
PS – I am having serious issues with the AC power cord and my laptop in general. I could barely post this tonight because of the cord not staying in and the extremely low battery life I have. Time to buck up and get another computer, I should think. If I’m not back tomorrow, this is why.
