The Flower Girls


Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time.  Last weekend I was taking photographs at the Cathedral Church of the Advent when I noticed the doors open.  As luck would have it,  a wedding was concluding and the wedding party walked right passed me.  These two flower girls were just adorable and I couldn't resist sneaking a photo!

The Tune du Jour is " Pachelbel: Canon in D" by Sally Harmon

A miracle.

This one you ought to print for your b&w vertical series, you want to look at it every day. It's an absolute joy.

This is just gorgeous. I'd not have thought to print this in b and w but it really works.

These are my kind of wedding photos- caught of guard and natural. Monochrome is so right too and this could also take sepia. Girls with curls Victoriana stlylie. I really do enjoy your human shots.

Carpe photo. Always pays to be ready. I like the combination of softness and motion.

Oh, to be a little girl in a pretty dress. I went out today and thought of this photo. I didn't get any flower girls but wish I did.

Bob ,
Capre photo. Oh how I love that one my friend. I wished i had it on AUTO! Damn, i was grappling with my settings! If I had been more ready I would have the bride and groom to show. Sometimes auto is what makes the day.

Blognote, I bow to you.

Virginia said...

Blognote,
Grazie.

The lighting is perfect on this one - and makes one think not about the photo but of the joyous event and the pretty girls - that's what photography is all about, n'est pas?
