Chicago to Boston to Chicago

Tuesday, November 14, 2006


I took this picture on Saturday. It was the last time I used my camera.

It was a beautiful day, 60 degrees and sunny, so I took a long walk through the Boston Public Garden. I've never seen so many people here, a few of them were taking pictures of their own.

Highlights:

A couple, who looked a lot alike and wore matching sweaters, were getting professional photos taken in front of a willow tree. The photographer had them pose in an uncomfortable position, sitting 'Indian style' and turning their backs all the way around to look into the camera. Their faces reflected this in forced smiles; it kind of looked like they were in the middle of an argument and someone snuck behind them and took a picture.

Two separate times, I saw a man taking pictures of a woman provocatively posed in a pile of leaves.

But this was my favorite (pictured.) I, along with a lot of other people, took pictures of this wedding party taking pictures. They walked all over the garden, taking pictures under different trees and on bridges. Every time I saw the groom he was holding the bride's flowers; the first day in a long life of holding his wife's belongings.

Do you think they'll hire a photographer for the first time he holds her maxipads at the drug store?

I would prefer if you had a fall wedding. I mean it really is only about what I want.
