Halloween Wedding Bells

Soho, New York. Lately, I have been the unintentional witness to several weddings. My recent posts at Bear Mountain and Smorgasburg attest to the fact that it is a busy season to get married. This is certainly an unusual venue. It is a small triangle park below Spring St and along 6th Av in Manhattan. And, it’s Halloween where a large crowd is quickly filling the available space in preparation for the parade. The lucky couple led the parade in a horse drawn carriage. I would guess that there were about a million well wishers and it even had television coverage. I missed the televised portion because I was still in the staging area photographing the evening’s participants. Congratulations.

Bear Mountain

Bear Mountain, New York. This has been reliable haunt for fall foliage pictures for many years for me. Too many prepositions, I know. But it has a sort of lilt. Global warming? Well, for the first time, it was disappointing. Some trees had lost their leaves, some were completely green, and the rest had flat color. I gunned up the saturation but really didn’t see much. Details, reflections and so forth got some images. Otherwise the best event was the bridal party on top of the mountain, in a stiff cold breeze, taking images. I shot from the side and got some great images. If the couple finds me I would be happy to donate the images. Meanwhile I have involuntarily added to my wedding portfolio. Anyone?
