#044-365 Chains

I warned you early on that I witnessed strange rituals, being performed on the mountain, here is one that the censor will allow (See Julie I do listen). With all the excitement of the pending Fireworks, these two have opted to don "Ball and Chain" and although the setting could not have been better, the day was hard to figure.
I have explained that It took me more than an hour to get out of the little car-park after the show had finished (The fireworks not the nuptials, it would be rude to peek) so Heavens knows how the many guests who crammed into the Restaurant, that had been booked for the affair (Sorry marriage), got home after all that toasting and such, I have no idea.
The shot was an interesting happenstance, in so far as I had the long lens on for shooting the fireworks, turned the camera quickly as I noticed this only out of my peripheral vision, and had to adjust quickly, the light was bad, auto focus a hindrance because of the close foliage, so I only got off three shots, this was the middle one the other two failed on focus and were ditched, a little exposure adjustment in PSE and I think I ended up with a pretty good Snap Shot, just seconds before they left to do I can't imagine what! (No it's true I can't - I am that OLD! LOL)

What a beautiful spot for a wedding - I can't imagine it w/ the crowds, but from this image it looks cozy!

Certainly a quirky interpretation of the theme!

One fine theme stretch! Just think how easy it will be to remember their anniversary.

Wow, Ron...this is a theme stretch even for you! (But it made me chuckle...very creative!)

Well, despite your troubles, I think it was a worthwhile shot! You have so many great levels of depth here... very nice for a "quick shot".

Nice catch, Ron!

Hi Ron,
Great shot, it came out looking good. The bride and groom are very good looking. Have a great day!

You didn't throw your back out stretching the theme did you? Still, a great shot. This was a great event to attend.

You've been talking to my DH haven't you - he would have put you up to this stretch of the theme (not to mention a bit of party crashing - he would have had you both off to join the reception!) Good spy shot - have you thought of joining the papparazzi chasing the rich and famous?
