Fun in San Francisco-with my Lens Baby

OK, this is just for fun. I was in San Francisco on my way to Napa for my 6th wedding anniversary and my husband and I stayed with some close friends Brian and Tami in SF. Brian, friend and fellow budding photographer took us for a walk in his neighborhood. I decided to take my Lens Baby - a funky little special effects lens- OK lets say a toy- a fun toy- with us to capture some images along the way. Here are just a few shots from our walk.

Congratulation to Queta & Frank -Lake Tahoe Wedding Photography

Congratulations to Queta & Frank, or is it Charles, or is it Chuck? I am not sure, but the groom does respond to all 3 names. They were married in South Lake Tahoe on a beautiful sunny September 29th. Although a fluke cold storm came in the night before and I awoke to a snow covered Tahoe, thank goodness it all melting away before the outdoor ceremony began.
