Lets see... a bounce castle... Mickey Mouse everywhere... Super Mario Brothers... overall youthful attitude. Yep, must be Stephanie and Gary's wedding.
I've known Stephanie and her family for at least 15 years... I think it's closer to 18 to be honest. I probably would have never met my wife if there hadn't been that connection with Stephanie and mutual friends. Over the past few years I've come to know Gary and his circle of friends quite well and I consider them some of my favorite folks to hang with.
Another co-worker of mine got hitched, and I was there to shoot a photo or two! Diana and Roger were married on March 2 at First Presbyterian in downtown Columbia. It looked like it was going to snow that afternoon, but fortunately the weather stayed pleasant!
I really needed a bigger lens, but I like the flat, sharp look that the 100mm macro provided. The comet was tough to see, even with binoculars. I only managed to see it with the naked eye using averted viewing, and even then I only saw it for a split second. The comet is the smudge to the left of the Moon.
For me, the Moon was the real spectacle of the night. It was the thinnest sliver I've ever seen and the way the camera picked up the earthshine is really magical.
