Last year one of our nieces asked me to take pictures for her wedding and I agreed. She wanted some posed photos of the wedding party. She also wanted a group portrait of all of the brides family. Since she is the youngest of seven; and aunts, uncles, cousins were in attendance; that made for a large group and was my header.
At our oldest granddaughter's wedding, I also took some group portraits. Above, the bride and her brothers posing for the official photographer. And below her son, held by her Dad and two of the brothers.

And finally, a group making a self protrait in 2004.
Brother-in-Law and his wife host
a CELEBRATION of the end of the school year. Friends, neighbors, and
family are invited. Sometimes called a "pig picking" - Barbeque pork and
chicken, corn on the cob, etc. are served. Guests also bring additional
dishes and desserts.
Games are set up for both the adults and youngsters

Spring finally reached Maryland and freezing weather is unlikely, so we have been adding color to your yard. Marianne will plant some of the above plants in a large pot. Others are in hanging pots in the back yard.
I joined the Header Challenge team in November. We post a new header each week on a suggested theme. Imac is the founder and head of the team. The members vote for best header and the winner gets the gold. The links above will take you to the other participants.

I am retired, married to a smart, talented lady who once thought we computer people were geeks and now is one of us geeks. I have a long time interest in photography. We live in Maryland, about 50 miles from Washington, DC.
My main camera is a Nikon D3100 with two zoom lenses (18-55 and 55-200).
