A Symphony for Love

Imagine a symphony on the beach. Imagine a glorious October day at that beach. One planned and the other pure and outrageous luck!

The rain was sideways as we drove to this wedding in Gearhart… buckets of rain, huge driving sheets of it. The living room at the beautiful beach house was staged for the inevitable indoor ceremony and three members of the Oregon Symphony were setting up in a tiny corner near the kitchen. Upstairs, the family members were all in varying stages of preparation… including Ali. She was pretty serene as the makeup and hair stylists finished their work. She can see the ocean from the second floor and the wind rippling the long stretch of tall grasses. She didn’t say much… she was still working on her vows as the ceremony time inched closer.

About the time she pulled on her dress, the sun came out. Downstairs the house was filling with her guests. She came down the stairs, traded her sweet pumps for the black Wellies by the door and declared that the ceremony would commence on the beach.
It was an incredible day!!

I come to every wedding ready to document the day… the things requested and the many pieces I see that make the story. The random parts that appear in front of my camera, the ones that make my senses sing, are the ones I live for.
This little procession up from the damp beach in Gearhart… ecstatic mom on the rise and Symphony Guy waiting for the couple and their furry companion to pass… I couldn’t have planned for this in any way… just have to track it through the eyepiece. It is a very favorite image of mine and I can’t imagine the day without it.

I Am Staff

Frankie pretty much runs the house. He certainly tries to run my office as well. Part of his job description as Office Manager is to exercise me. I have to get out of my chair at regular intervals to feed him cat crackers. We also have an aerobic routine involving mopping the floor every other day because the muddy footprints are becoming dimensional.The Stand in Front of the Monitor pose is the cracker request mostly, although he will use it to ask me to get off of the phone, too.

The other day, I rearranged some of my shelving so that I could put my external hard drives in a less cat accessible space… Frankie decided that he had a better use for one of the empty cubbies.

I have since taken that space back but you can bet there is a new mutiny brewing in his furry brain.
