I got you

I got you

Who knew the undercarriage of a bridge could be so romantic?

In 2007, Mark and Sara had a courthouse wedding with themselves, their two best friends and me. It was my first wedding and I was a complete stranger to them all. I remember being nervous but after the awkward past, we quickly became friends.

That day, we ventured all around the city of Milwaukee taking pictures. Eventually, we came to the Marsupial Bridge, a truly unique and beautiful pedestrian bridge suspended within the steel support structure of the Holton Street Viaduct. We didn’t stay long but sometimes a moment is all that matters.

For such a spontaneous kind of day, we couldn’t have planned this much better.

How neat is this? She landed right on my hand! On a snowshoe hike around Trillium Lake near Mt. Hood we ran into these friendly fliers. Of course I didn’t feed it but pretended I had food so I could get a picture.

I guess animals like me.

What an outrageously beautiful creature.  There were quite a few peacocks at the “farm” I visited and all the males were showing off their colors.  There was even an albino male there but he wasn’t very successful in attracting the ladies.  No colors were adjusted / edited in this photograph, only a slight tweak of shadows.

Hard to believe it’s been over two years since Kendra and I moved to Oregon. I remember our first few months like they were yesterday – the day captured above being no exception. It was a cold and windy day at Cannon Beach but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the remarkably beautiful scenery.

Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to come away with any great photographs when we rolled up on the beach. The sun was all but completely lost behind thick clouds and the light was pretty much as blah as it gets. We waited it out though and as sunset approached, everything changed. The clouds on the horizon dissipated, a bit of sunlight shone through and I had all the drama I needed for a spectacular photograph. The father and daughter walking along the beach near Haystack Rock makes it even better.

It was a great day.

For being such a cloudy day, I sure got lucky with this burst of sunshine on the marigold field. Talk about a magical moment! Sometimes things just work out.

Taken atop the sand dune cliffs along the Pacific Ocean in Montana de Oro State Park, this photograph recalls one of the most ridiculously beautiful sunsets I’ve seen.
