Hi all, We just got back from a much too short vacation and then had to deal with the depressing fact that we had to go back to the daily grind. So I havn't been on very much lately. Anyway, I took these while in Destin, Fla. except for the thumb "Christmas Sailboat" which I took this evening on Christmas Eve. Hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas.
Holiday Snap Shots
So after some serious thought he asked Me and Birdie to do a photo shoot of him and my daughter.
We were busy setting up different lighting situations and taking practice shots of each other, all the while thinking that Leslie was getting ready for the shoot.
She appeared suddenly checking out the scene, far from ready...
Some women need a little more prep work than others. Leslie
It was Christmas Eve and we still had lots to do and places to be , so off she went, finally, and returned in better form!
We set the SB800's as slaves on tripods and bounced the light off the ceiling for these. Leslie and Kevin
Trying to stay warm and sane.
Here are some shots so far.
And of course Buck had to be in the photo shoot.
More Family Shots
Do I Dare Take It From Her This was taken during the kids version of the present stealing game. Beau is the youngest cousin who was playing and he was a little intimidated by his older cousins.
Let Me Tell You A Secret Grandpa This was taken just before the shot I posted yesterday where Dad was hugging the present.

Hope for each yesterday was a day of good cheer,
To all of my friends--those far and those near,
I pray you take Christmas blessings into the new year.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I have been going like crazy, but thought I would take this moment to say you have all been an inspiration to me in 2007 and I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful photographic experiences you share with me in 2008.

Merry Christmas To Everyone At PhotoGraphica
Christmas Eve, San Francisco-style
First off, we have no snow. We haven't had snow in San Francisco in about 100 years. Secondly, it was almost 60 degrees and sunny today. Not very Christmas-like weather.
And then there are these other problems to deal with:
this is not a partridge in a pear tree
However, despite all these logistical 'challenges', Santa still manages to figure it out and come in for a landing anyhow ... I just hope he remembers to bring his sunglasses this year.
(and my apologies to any one of you who are currently spending Christmas eve in a blizzard.)
BONUS: Merry Christmas from the cat Bah Humbug...
Happy Holidays, everyone...
