Hanging onto the day

Hanging onto the day, originally uploaded by Photomike07.

So, after putting the finishing touches on the lighting we were doing for a wedding tonight, I said goodbye to my lighting director for the evening and my client, and headed out the door in hopes of catching a cool sunset. Well, we have some fickle weather here in South Florida. I eventually did catch some unusual color down by the new city piers, but that will have to wait for another post someday. This is a little peek at the color that I love to catch though…..captured a couple of months ago just off of one of the bridges to Palm Beach.

As I was driving back from the wedding setup, I was thinking about a couple of things. First, if you really think about it, even if there is total overcast and clouds, above all that is a beautiful sunset in hiding. Kind of a stupid thought actually. Second, and a little more comical, is the following scenario. Imagine a drunk relative at a wedding (hmmm, that always seems to happen doesn’t it?) lets call him uncle Ted, who’s profession is a divorce attorney. There is a pretty good chance that if intoxicated enough, he could consider slipping either the bride or groom a business card. Hey, 50% failure rate, the odds are pretty good for locking in a future client, right?

(Geeeez, Mike, was that necessary?)

LOL….Enjoy the weekend 🙂

    LOL, some of our best sunsets out here in the desert look like crap about an hour out. Our problems are not enough clouds and a bland/same sky.ReplyCancel

    Fantastic sunset shot and your "thoughts" and description are just too funny… the firts part goes quite well with what I usually tell people when they ask me "if there will be a sunset tonight." (happens a lot when people see me sitting around with my camera in hand around sunset time watching the sky). "Of course there will be one, the question just is if we are going to see it." 🙂ReplyCancel
