On Friday, 1 January 2021, one can officially say that 2020 was the year that was, adding a multitude of descriptors at the end, regardless of one's political, religious or philosophical leanings. It is not a period of time that will easily be forgotten, although the way in which time seemed to move with so much intensity, I am already losing details. But life continues. Many have perished this year. Babies have been born. And despite the upheaval, people continue to fall in love and marry. On a late autumn Sunday, I had the privilege to shoot the engagement photographs for Jessica and Joseph. It was a delightful session. We all wore masks, I used my faithful 70-200 mm lens for a majority of the photographs. It kept us socially distanced and allowed for a variety of depths of field. The Santa Fe River and its environs gave us some interesting backdrops. Since it had recently snowed, the river was gently flowing.
Since Jessica and Joseph are both avid tango dancers, we had to capture some of those looks as well on one of the many foot/bicycle bridges that cross the river.
May 2021 be a better, if not spectacular, year for all of you, including Jessica and Joseph, and those who stick with this blog, whether it arrives on time Monday morning or at a later hour, through thick and thin, literally. Thanks to all of you. And a very Happy Birthday to Ben on Tuesday. I wish I had a book of all your stories from nine decades!
until next Monday,
