a little bit of ordinary in mendocino

hello moon

this weekend we went to a wedding in mendocino.... weddings can be nice.... weddings can be gruelling.... lots of repetitive info shared with almost perfect strangers.... if you know the couple really well and are happy for them they are magical. our wedding now 2 years ago [!!] was a great day for us... i can still call up small moments and grand feelings....

i did not know the bride and groom so well for this wedding... and there were 238 folks there. it was still nice - but me being me - i just had to find something to keep myself occupied... the bad? it was cold... and the band played a cover of U2's vertigo [i almost lost it there - i can handle predictable sort of middle of the road music when in this type of situation, but that sent me over the edge. i was reminded that i can be a wholehearted music SNOB!!] and so i looked for small moments to photograph. i thought - why take the "normal" wedding shots?? so i took very few of people... instead i looked for what i liked in the surroundings. if you want to see them all you can go here

i am trying to recoop today... i am trying to get ready for class tomorrow where we start working in photoshop... i am so unmotivated - it's not even funny. i would rather sleep.... i'd rather poke around on flickr.... i'm being a bad bad teacher.... the plan? eat dinner and then pull it together....

drawings hopefully tomorrow [like i can manage to photo those?? :) ]

oh, yes. 'unmotivated' so accurately describes my current state. so much easier to get lost in the eye-candy world of flickr (it's absolutely ENDLESS, isn't it?)... I can't believe the weekend is already over, uuggghhhh.

love the shots you got at the wedding... guess where I'm headed now to view and comment and get lost...? even though I have a million things to do.

Yay! two years for James and me, too! yeah, weddings...um we wanted to spare people some of the boredom, had a (literally) five minute private ceremony and then just had a giant party. Yeah..U2?! You may as well be playing Dave Matthews Band-ugh! I've been lost all day on flicker-making myself craft and do chores before I can have a little "flickr" break-seriously-this has got to stop! Let's swap-I'm up for it-good luck with teaching-oy

weddings and flickr...I loved your flickr shots. Magical and so much better than grinning great-aunts. Jan-Uwe and I are married two years in december and the thing I remember most about the wedding is being totally exhausted :)
flickr just sucks you in, doesn't it? I had more time before flickr, but now I have much more fun.
