“To remake the young flyer
Yes we must define his high desire
Stand erect and not detect
The anythings that we could not admire”

Thunderstorms rolled in bringing Reagan National departures to a stand still for nearly two hours last week. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many departure planes parked so close together and not at a gate before. I could hear Fred Thompson say “stack ’em, pack ’em and rack ’em”! – from Die Hard II.

Caroline and Brian held their ceremony and reception at the House of Blues in New Orleans Louisiana. The first look was photographed at the Monteleone Hotel on Royal St. The ceremony took place outside in the courtyard followed by a traditional New Orleans second line jazz parade leading up to the Parish Room. The reception was non-stop dancing by what seemed like everyone in the room! Just a wonderful wedding to photograph.

I left out the “e” in Monochrome on purpose this week since this image was created using the Leica Monochrom M rangefinder camera on loan from Leica during the Leica Akademie Monochrom workshop last week at the Leica Store DC. Yes that’s a lot of Leica in one sentence! Tom A. Smith of Leica and photographer Quinton Gordon lead the workshop.

I’m usually a 35mm or 50mm lens user so I challenged myself by using a 75mm lens on the Monochrom for the day. Focusing through a smaller viewfinder window is a challenge in itself not to mention photographing at a wide open aperture with a telephoto lens. I came across this guitar player performing downtown and experimented with different focusing points from his hands,face and guitar strings.

 A brief stop at Valley Forge National Park before heading to a photography session in NYC. This is the National Memorial Arch at Valley Forge. Trying out a 21mm 1.8 lens on the Leica and thought the Arch’s lines would be a great subject to test distortion.

Days leading up to this wedding had the weather as being real bad the day of the wedding. Luckily Southern weather is constantly changing as the bad weather stayed away until the very end of the day. The Burrus House is just a great location for a wedding. The Bride & Groom drove away in this car at the end of the night. More later!
