Weekend Shot: The First Fifty
Late last week, I did a post about how Leslie and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. (thanks for all the well-wishes, by the way.)
This past weekend, me and the family headed up to Northeast Pennsylvania to visit with – and celebrate with – another couple having a wedding anniversary.
My parents – They were married back on May 16, 1964.
Yeah, that’s 50 years ago.
Talk about a commitment and stick-togetherness.
When we arrived on Friday, my mom was wearing a t-shirt that said The First 50 Years Of Marriage Are The Hardest…. That I don’t doubt.
So, before we all went out to dinner, I wanted to make a nice portrait of them. Did a couple of shots in the backyard, battling the hard late afternoon sun and squinty eyes.
I brought out with me a couple of framed photos that my mom had out, one of them young couple cutting their wedding cake, and one of the wedding party.
I asked them to hold the one of the wedding party, and like it best. Liked it even better in B&W.
Congratulations, Mom and Pop. Here’s to another 50.
They should be easier….
