the night was young

My 'third' daughter Samantha got married last Saturday night in Waterville, Ohio and although I've just begun to edit the photos (Maggie & I backed up Brian) I came across one that caught my eye.  Taken as I was leaving the wedding tent and wandering up the hill, it was one of those "just one more photo" moments.  Knowing this routine quite well, my wife Elise fanned away the mosquitos as I auditioned possible tripods (upside down trash can, stump and finally a chair).  Before I go further, let me say a word about the Maumee Valley mosquitos - they are a magnificent breed, as big as small birds & able to sustain multiple beatings and even though our host claimed they went 'away' when the sun went down, we came to the conclusion that this was a myth and marveled at their tenacity. After firing off a few shaky frames I finally got what I was looking for and hurried off to the car. And the wedding?  A simple and wonderful affair, with more photos to come...
