Photo: Reunion

Reunion
I think Brice and Kayla were just meeting up after a long vacation. I didn’t ask, but either way they’re a nice couple.

This isn’t a candid shot, but their smiles are authentic because I said something funny… I can’t remember what.

I let the camera auto-expose, and it was too dark, so I upped the exposure afterward in Adobe Camera Raw. Though it was bright and sunny out, there were no harsh shadows so this is still a great portrait.

Kayla looks a bit like the actress Adrienne Shelly. I don’t know who Brice looks like.

This reminds me of one of those stock photos you see in the picture frames at Wal-Mart… except they always seem like fake people. I only take pictures of real people.

  1. Well taken. Caught your comment on mcawilliams. I liked the two header as well, but something about this one just reminded me of the Neil Young lyric from After the Gold Rush.

    ‘All in a dream, all in a dream
    The loading had begun.
    They were flying Mother Nature’s
    Silver seed to a new home in the sun.
    Flying Mother Nature’s
    Silver seed to a new home.’

    Oh but my that’s from THIRTY EIGHT years ago! Getting old, man. Anyway, enjoyed your silver seeds.

    1. Thanks, Mr. McGivney. Those are some good lyrics there; I’ll have to listen his music some time. I like the “silver seeds” idea. Might have to use it as a title when I come up with another idea involving dandelions. 😎
