Finally over!!



Gerry has been photographing the drama John Edwards creates since 2005, and finally today, the jury ended the nonsense trial that has been dragging Gerry out of the house at 5am for too many mornings. Also over, at least for a couple of weeks of vacation, are basketball games, hockey, football, golf, Nascar, storms.....when did sports and celebrities become such a focus for news organizations I wonder? I remember when Gerry used to shoot real photojournalism stories and now all he shoots is sports. Why is this such an important thing in our world? Surely there are important and interesting stories my husband, who is one of the most talented photographers I know, could be shooting......
Anyway, here is a little clip from one of the slow days when the news media could find nothing else to report on but themselves and Ger got interviewed. He's in the green shirt, black glasses, the really hot guy:)
We were married in Myrtle Beach 27 years ago on June 1, met five years before that in college, and we have been best friends for all that time (well most of it anyway, haha. Here's to at least 27 more years!!!! We have some friends we have known since college coming to the Lark and Key show tomorrow night, so if you are there and we are loud, I'll go ahead and say, sorry, but we like to have fun, ok?!

Oh those must have been long days for Gerry, glad it's over. I don't get the whole professional sports thing either, but at least for a photographer it must be exciting when you get a great action shot.
Happy Anniversary and best wishes for your opening tomorrow night.

Back to Maine? You lucky guys. We'll be up there the weekend of the 22nd. Let's see lots of pics. Drop in at the Cape if it's on your way.

Hey Michele, yes, very long days, glad it's over! and yep, Gerry still loves it when he gets a great pic no matter what the subject is.
Hey MK, thanks, and yes Gerry does rock :)
Hey Hollis, yes back to Maine, probably a different route this time so we will miss the cape, maybe next year?!
