Aftershocks...


The big event of the weekend is over but, like aftershocks following an earthquake,  new words and images keep appearing.  Justin's older brother Ethan posted a really lovely piece about the wedding on his blog.

And these four night pictures were taken by our photographer friend Cory (his website is HERE) from up on a ridge behind Justin and Claui's house.

The weird wormy-looking things are time lapse -- oops, Cory says these photos are long exposures, shutter open for about 60 seconds each. Quite different from time-lapse photography in which one takes multiple images with time missing between each frame, in order to make a video that appears to move in faster than life speed --photography, tracing the path of big fire balloons that were released in celebration of Claui's niece's 16th birthday (which coincided with the wedding.) 

It was magical, to say the least.

Amazing pictures! How in the world did the photographer manage to get up that high in the dark?

Probably it was all that champagne, Merisi (ducking.)

Thanks for the links, especially Ethan's. It all looked like a wedding we would have enjoyed, full of family and friends, full of love, and completely unpretentious. Ethan's right; it's the human element that makes life special.

Fire balloons and a bonfire...oh,it must be wonderful to not have to worry about forest fires! The photos are magical, I love that blue glow of twilight contrasting with the warm colors of the fire and electrical lights.
