Above is another watch slider bracelet I made for a commissioning. You know who you are and I sure do hope that you will like it. Its in the post on its way to you. Libby, if you are reading this post, yours is in the making and should be off to you early next week. Thanks girls I really appreciate your support. And of course I so enjoy creating these.
You regulars would probably recall that I mentioned during December that I was going to be one of the ad hoc photographers at my DH sister's son's wedding on 3 January. Not being the main photographer and having the liberty of setting up scenes for shots, I had to be satisfied with mostly side-on view points, I am not totally happy with some of the photos. But, I always say that even if there are only one good shot amongst 800+ photos (that's about the amount of photos I took), its all worthwhile.
Below are then a few shots I took at Angelique and Enrico Nell's wedding. Seeing that the colour combo for the wedding was black and white and Angelique's dress had black embroidery, I adjusted the colours of the photos to mainly black and white. The couple has not seen any of the photos I took as yet, so please bear with the long post, as I am sure they would enjoy seeing some of the photos here.
It was a pleasure to photograph Angelique as she is such a spontaneous person and naturally photogenic. And I can say the same of Enrico who is a real humble and down to earth guy.
Oh yes, whilst we on the topic of love, Mr Weaver was once again not lucky with his love nest as it seems awfully quiet in the vicinity. So lets hold thumbs that love is meant for him, third time round.
Thanks for looking. Wishing you all a fantastic weekend with lots of fun and rest.
