I am still far

I think I made it. Both daughters were married yesterday. I am completely brain-dead. I crashed on the couch when I got back to the studio. Did not even unload some stuff...that is definately a sign of how tired I was.

From the WebShow at the reception, my new Fuji S5 camera was wonderful. Great images even straight-out-of-the-camera. Can't wait to enhance them and post some...oh, but that means a LOT of work ahead. I am going back to sleep for a while.

I did want to post a couple of formal photographs we took at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.

I woke up at about 4:00AM on Sunday. It is now almost 5:00AM and I am tired again and very sore. I will post more later. But let's just say a double wedding is definately an adventure NOT for the faint-hearted.

More later.

Almost time...

Both daughters are getting married Saturday (October 27, 2007). Is this what death row feels like? Must be close, at least.

I am very sad tonight, albeit a part of life that it is. We have been through so much together in the last few years. Time and events that have brought us so close. Closer than we have ever been. This special time together, I am so grateful I can be a part of and contribute the very best that I can, in what I do. All that I am and have become has brought me to this moment in time. I pray I am prepared.

I am preparing their reception WebShow. I have no doubt that is enhancing my feelings now.

That process is always a big deal, if I am using a new song. The files to be used must be prepared, the song played over and over to get the timing right and count the files I will need (or approximate number).

I tend to play the song over and over and over. Listening to every change, every nuance of the music, to determine how I want the photos to transition. I sometimes spend just as much time on a WebShow as I do on preparing and retouching the actual photographs. I actually started this process, of selecting the song and preparing mentally what I wanted to do, many weeks ago.

But this WebShow has to be special. It will be a Father's Farewell.

I love you both very much.

I had a booger of a virus on my main production computer. I think I have got everything back to normal but it has been a rough 24+ hours. Oh, and that is 24+ hours straight that I was awake and trying to get it removed.

I did take a nap today while the antivirus was running (over 4 hours). This is the 2nd time I think I have contracted a horrible virus from a link to "track this order". That is the only thing I can think of that caused it. It has happened before when I clicked on a "track this order" link.

Both times the viruses were ruthless. Just a total inability to do anything. It would not allow me open some applications, or do much of anything.

If you have been waiting for pictures or album design changes, they are getting done, finally.

Ok back to work.

Congratulations to Rachel!

Ummm...not sure if that is proper protocal or not, but CONGRATULATIONS anyway!
Rachel will be having her Bat Mitzvah in June of 2008. It will be my first one and I am sooo looking forward to it. I need to learn the customs and traditions so I can design a nice album for her.
Can't wait!
The update for my daughters (yes that is plural) weddings is: 16 more days until my life is over. Just thought everyone would like to know.
