Arlene asked if I was interested in seeing the Blue Angels. I already had plans to photograph them but it was a chance to hangout with her.

I shot approx 600 photos and most of them had motion blur. I’m getting old and losing my touch.

We had the neighbors over for a small get together. After we ate I asked for portraits which is usually hit or miss… that is til Sandy had the great idea to take shots with Stinky. Everyone jumped at the chance.

Today we attended Connor’s 3 month old party at the Grand Palace Restaurant. We ate so much we succumb to a food coma. As it came time to go around for the photos at every table Connor was out cold too.

While the others were at church, I shot some beat up old houses nearby.

Then it was on to Mono Lake. A very unusual place. Highly recommended, just go there when the light is good.

We also took a very relaxing trip on rafts into June Lake. I almost died as I tried to jump into the raft and went face 1st into the 3 ft deep stream. What do friends do when you have a life threatening experience, point & laugh or grab a photo? They did both.
