The Father's Day Crash

Today is officially a down day for me. it is a down day not because it is Father's Day, but because the last few weeks have been a constant go leading up to yesterday's climatic cresendo.

Each year, our photography group,, does several big events, Help Portrait in December, our recently added annual swap meet in February, our annual BBQ event in June and the State Fair over Labor Day. Yesterday was the annual BBQ event in which we went bigger than ever this year. We had tons of food, drinks, volleyball, horseshoes, a photo scavenger hunt and a raffle.

None of this would have been possible without the help of everyone involved in planning and executing it; Rick, Shawn, Nathan, Heather, Michael, Hermie, my wife and my kids and the other people it took planning the menu and events, Peggy and Jim. It took a small army of planners and executors to make this happen and I appreciate each and every one of you. 

As a result of being so busy that day, I like several others didn't shoot a single shot that day. As a matter of fact, my camera never left its bag, but I wasn't there for me. I was there to make sure everyone else had a wonderful time and outside of some mosquito bites and an army of dancing blue dirvishes that invaded the park, we were successful.

Here are a shot I captured during a BBQ planning field trip with Rick and Nathan.
