I didn't have to go far to get my photo of a mom using facebook, just upstairs. The article was on social websites and how some people are eliminating personal contact for the virtual. Amanda, the mom in the photo, wants to make sure that everyone knows she is not addicted and uses the site to stay intouch with friends and to make plans in the real world.
This family portrait is of a newly widowed mother of 7, ages 7,6,5,4,2,1,7mon., they were fun to shoot and I love the fact I didn't need to use a flash, yeah for big windows and sunny days.
All week Danville's has had a festival celebrating the town's history and veterans. This is also the week that Rob is on vacation so I am the only second shift photographer so I got most of the events. Here are a few from the parade.
5 minutes till the rain started luckily they were almost at the end. The little boy in the yellow is priceless. The reenactor was going after balloons the kid was conserned for his life.
These two were taking their job seriously.
My personal favorite of the crowd and parade. These guys are the United States Army Old Gaurd Fife and Drum Corps, they were impressive.
Sadly because of technology this photo did not make it to the copy desk before the deadline and didn't run in the paper today. Everyone had a great time at the movie although we are all a little sleep deprived today. And to Amanda, who hasn't read all the books yet and didn't know Dumbledore died, I know its sad but life will go on...
