I did get a few good photos of the bride (my niece) and groom at the wedding Friday, July 18th. I was worried that I didn't get anything decent for them since it was a Catholic wedding and all the sitting, standing, sitting, standing was very hard on my already painful back. I don't know why this is my favorite - maybe because she looks so happy. They are going to have a good life and she's picked a good man.
And after some minor manipulations in Picasa (a free Google photo program) of the best ones, I came up with over 30 photos! Much better than I expected and that should be enough to put into a nice album for them.
Now today is the first day I am off all meds for my back. And I walked for 15 minutes yesterday evening with no bad results. Truly on the mend!!! I may just go down to my art room and paint for a while - timing myself in 1/2 hour increments so I don't get carried away. If I get anything to share, I will do that later today...
I so appreciate all the positive comments and concerns about my back and the problem I had - when you make friends like this over the internet, you know it's a good thing when used in the right way :)
