Wedding photos

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on July 25, 2008

Building a website, I’ve found out, is no easy task. I feel guilty about leaving my blog completely dead, so here are a few of my wedding shots that are ready to go on the site.

Also, does anyone know where to send camera equipment to when it needs to be fixed? I need to ship of my camera and lenses calibrated… they were all purchased used and have ceased to work quite right.

Yesterday was my last day at the Messenger-Inquirer. It was hard to say goodbye.

Next task: Get my web site up and running. No more relying on wordpress. So, if there aren’t any posts for awhile, you know where I’m at and what I’m doing. Also, I’m back in Lexington, so if you’re around, we should hang out and take pictures.

Dumpling, an 8-week-old Dachshund puppy, survived a fire in a trailer home today.

I haven’t had a chance to go through my entire take from Christina’s wedding, but I did find this shot and thought I’d put it up. So… more to follow.

The Moose Lodge caught on fire yesterday. It was abandoned, however, so no one was injured. Firefighters didn’t know what started the fire. The light was spectacular, though I’m not sure how good of a job I did in trying to capture it.

Prior to the fire, I feature hunted.

And I also shot little league.

happy birthday, america

Today I shot pictures of Fred Hina, the former fire chief of the OFD. I’ve been feeling like my photos have been looking too point-and-shoot, so I was really trying to get something different.

I was out early Thursday morning last week, hunting for a feature for the paper. I saw two women sitting on a swing in front of their house, and stopped to snap a few pictures of them. Well, once I was done we got to talking, and it turned out that one of the women, Margaret Newton, was expected to meet her grandson for the first time that weekend.

Her grandson, Steve, is 36. When Margaret’s son was stationed in the Philippines about 40 years ago, he met a woman, fell in love, and had two kids. Well, once his time in the service was up, he was forced to leave them behind. After being out of contact for all these years, Steve, who had been told his father died in Vietnam, had no idea his father was still alive until a week ago, when his wife started digging to find his father’s side of the family. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the actual reunion (it’s a long story), but I was there the day after.

It has been awhile since I updated, and most of what has kept me busy is feature hunting.

It even included this man with a 12-year-old Hardee’s Bacon Egg & Cheese biscuit.
