Three Weddings In A Day. That's Amore!


There was lots of love and romance going on in Philadelphia this past weekend.

Much to my delight, Sunday was a very busy day in this city with couples having their wedding pictures taken. And I'm so glad I had my camera with me so that I was able to capture the love and romance being captured by their wedding photographers.

Not only did I spot one couple, but THREE! I swear to god, it seemed like everyone decided to get married on that day.

And in case you're wondering why these photographs were all shot in the middle of a busy street like Broad Street, the view of City Hall in the background are what many wedding couples like to capture within their photographs. Broad Street is very popular for taking wedding pictures.

Here's the view...


I noticed this first couple late afternoon and quickly grabbed my camera to get a few shots. And I wasn't the only one taking photographs because the sidewalk was filled with people holding up their iPhones; snapping pictures.

I first thought they were filming a scene from movie on the street, because the setup was so elaborate. Take a look...




What a handsome wedding couple, hu?




Isn't her dress beautiful? And I think she looked stunning in it!


LOVE the vintage car. It looks like a scene from the movie, The Godfather!

And no sooner had I turned away and walked further down Broad Street towards City Hall, I spotted this second wedding couple with their photographer...


Then later, early evening, I spotted this third wedding couple having their photographs taken...


And I'm so pissed because I missed getting a shot of the groom kneeling down on one knee; holding a wedding ring (in a small jewelry box) up to the bride, as he proposed...


Yes, it was a very romantic day here in Philly!

Ahhh....amore!

Have a super week, y'all!

Photographs: The Element Of Water


Out of all five elements, water is my favorite.

It’s ironic about the element of water though, because it can be adaptable, pliable and gentle. But in an overabundance, it can also be very aggressive; wielding great power when it floods and overwhelms the earth.

Water to drink:

For as long as I can remember, water has been my favorite thing to drink. Yes, I adore a good glass of red wine and a cup of dark roasted coffee, but other than that, I don’t drink anything else. Okay, I lie, maybe some Arizona Iced Green Tea occasionally.

Here are some other things I love about water:

  • I love to take baths and showers because water seems to both calm and refresh me. Whenever I get sick or feel out-of-sorts, taking a bath or shower makes me feel so much better.
  • I love rain. And enjoy walking in it on a warm day.
  • I love to sit on a beach and look at the ocean as it moves.
  • I love to sit by a lake or river. I find gazing at water therapeutic and healing.
  • I love to dive into a swimming pool of cool water on a hot, summer day.
  • And lastly, I find water very sensuous. And if you don't believe me, try taking a hot-soapy bath or shower, or sitting in a bubbling Jacuzzi with someone you like, and you'll know what I mean.

*wink*

So to honor the element of water, I would like to share several photographs today.

Please enjoy some agua...


These shots were taken in my bathroom.



I had off yesterday and oddly enough it rained. So I took my umbrella and camera, and went walking.


Peeking from under my umbrella.


Wet city streets.



A manhole cover.


Water drops.



A shot of my wet umbrella while sitting in Starbucks, enjoying a cup of dark roasted coffee.

Oh, and speaking of coffee, I found this quote online and thought it was brilliant!

"Water is the most important element in life...
because without it you can't make coffee."

-Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City)


Have a waterful weekend everyone!
