Most of my pictures from Las Vegas were taken on the last day. I did take almost a whole memory card on Saturday, but we were at a private wedding and this wouldn't be an appropriate venue to display the pictures without consent.

Not sure if this is my most artistic pictures, but I was really excited when I saw it.
This shot was taken from the observation deck up inside the Eiffel Tower at the Paris hotel.
Here's a list of things to remember when attempting this shot that will hopefully allow us to improve on it.
- Dress warmly. It was freezing up there with the wind in December.
- Camp out for the good hole. The whole deck is surrounded by a cage to keep people from falling. There is one really good hole pointed at this hotel...get it early and don't move.
- Bring extra memory cards. I only had about 50 shots left when we got to the top. D'oh!
- Pay the extra for the night shot. Enough said.

Is there a busier time of year for a parent?
The Mrs. and I have decided to take a long weekend to Vegas for a meet up with poker bloggers. You know, one of my many other blogs?
Before we take off for one of my favorite photo ops (I love shooting in Vegas!), I wanted to share a picture of my youngest getting ready to hang one of her favorite ornaments.

More pumpkins from the pumpkin patch.
I found this huge pile of pumpkins just fascinating. I also really like saying the word, pumpkin.
I'm trying something new with Picasa in hopes that these pictures quit sucking when posted with this tool. Photoshop is running so slow on my computer that it is almost unusable...thus, yet another picture posted "As Shot".
New puter is in the plan...now to get it push out of the merely spoken of plan and into the getting action plan.

I took this picture last weekend while taking the kids to the pumpkin patch/orchard. It's a family tradition for us. Hopefully, not too many of my readers/viewers are save the pumpkin people. I like me a good slice of punkin pie!
As is typical with me. This photo as shot. Fxmixer...I haven't got a new puter yet. This is all I got. It's age and lack of sofistication seems to be rubbing of on me writing too.

It seems I found myself in a church again today, a family wedding. And for a guy that doesn't really fancy himself much of a church goer, I sure do take a lot of pictures there.
This shot just kinda fell into my lap. I'm sitting there, the service was beautiful and my youngest daughter can't behave and I see it: the stained glass creating this magical lighting and a lonely foot to tell my story.
I'd love to hear stories about your pictures that just seem to fall into your lap. Some people like to tell me, I have the eye. I have no idea what that means, but I think it's because I sometimes see the world in a 3X5 frame.

In this next photo, We found this beautiful stone arch door. I decided to use it to frame the couple. The black zoot suit did make this whole day a challenge. It was almost impossible to get the exposures to show him clearly.

In the garden at the Plummer House is this fountain. I really wished I could spend more time shooting just his, but alas, someone was paying me NOT to do that.
I tried 3 different poses. I'm thinking I like the top right exposure the best, but I'm not sure.
If you ask Mark, at Mark Parry Photography, I can be very frustrating when judging my own photographs.
This shot at the right was done with a longer exposure then the other with a much tighter look.
This last frame is a wider view of the pond and fountain. Later, you will see that this was the backdrop chosen by the bride and groom for many of their posed portraits.
Which fountain do you like best? What are your favorite ways to photograph scenes like this?
