Just Before The Dance of Death

The Dance of Death

Bloodless but Energized

Three variations on an original photo that I will not post at the request of those in it. And these are all processes that I haven’t used before….so all of these were experiments in how to mask who they are………….and obviously on a vampire-like theme.
Must be the evil in me trying to get out, eh?

Mattie and Lindsey got married a couple of days ago in the clock tower of the May D & F Tower in downtown Denver (open this link, then click on the resulting photo to get an even larger view for better detail).
It was truly an incredible experience and one I will likely never forget. I wasn’t their primary photographer and thankfully that was Liddy‘s job (whew!)…..but I took some shots that I really like quite a lot.
Enjoy!

As I do occasionally, I create posts for friends, who are special to me. This is one of those posts.

This one is for Gina V.

Because I just passed another year, the title of this blog has 2 meanings: I have found myself one more year forward and look forward to the one coming up.
The past year has had its ups and downs, as many do, but I like to base a year on the people I meet, more than anything. Events are one thing but meeting people who leave an impression are something entirely different. And while I have met quite a few people this year, meeting Gina has left quite an impression on me. I could list the reasons why but I won’t: she knows why, I think, and that is all that matters.

I consider the work included here some of my best work, either for personal reasons or because of feedback. The dates refer to the original date I took the photos.

So, Gina, these are for you….sort of a gift to you as I enjoy the entry of my next year on this planet. Enjoy!
