“And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say “Man what are you doing here?” – Billy Joel

I had a great time helping Jessica photograph this wedding. These are a few of my favorites from Brian and Daniel’s wedding at the Four Seasons hotel in DC.

The Fours Seasons Magazine wedding blog post from the wedding can be found here.

A major dilemma with many photographers is what camera to bring on an excursion that is not related to work. iPhone? SLR? Leica? Medium Format? Well when kayaking a river even I don’t want to put a Leica close to the water so for the 4th of July in Washington DC I opted to use my FED 5b. It’s a Russian knockoff of a Leica rangefinder with a fairly decent 50mm f2 Industar lens. I wasn’t concerned if this camera got wet or if it fell into the water while kayaking. eBay is full of them and it’s easily replaceable where a Leica is not unless you have lots of funds available.

Now the FED does not have IS or VR so bobbing up and down in the water even when attached to a tripod is going to bring interesting results. This image was about a 10 second exposure using Kodak 200 Gold film.

Google Maps shows this location as being in Newark, I’ll take it’s word for it since it was after midnight leaving NYC on Amtrak to head back to DC. Spent a great but quick 13 hours in the city of blinding lights.

This is the second year I had the opportunity to photograph La Vuelta cycling peloton in Puerto Rico. Probably one of the most physical shoots I’ve ever experienced. I’m riding on the back of a motorcycle for 3 days covering 375 miles while photographing cyclists just a few feet away that can exceed 35 miles per hour.

The event tests your photography skills for sure, knowing your craft is a must. The day starts in darkness and will turn into extreme bright sun within just a couple hours. Each day consists of : Get on the bike, photograph the cyclists as your motorcycle whizzes by, get ahead of the riders and scout a location to shoot, get off the bike quickly, get in position, check your gear, check the light, shoot the cyclists, run back to bike, get back on bike, adjust gear, go go go! Great team we had again this year Chris Pike, Kip Pierson and myself. Thanks to Kip and the La Vuelta team for bringing me back.

Enjoy. – Chris

“Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
All of my dreams just fall like rain
All upon a downtown train” – Tom Waits

I thought these lyrics fit perfectly.
