Fripp 2010

Well, here they are. After hours and hours (days? weeks?) behind the camera and in front of my Mac working with my images, I’ve finally gotten my annual family vacation pictures online… again. Sound familiar? That’s what I wrote this time last year but it’s just as appropriate this time around. And with the beach trip lurking in 12 days (Kiawah this year), I had to get them posted before the next thousand new ones arrived.

2010 was a great trip with not only family being there, but 2 sets of friends to share it with. The Fenwicks were with us the first week and the Pughs were there the second (although they stayed with Mom & Dad that week since Tre/Jen were in the house with us). It was a great 2 weeks with great weather and no illness/injury to really ruin anything, what a blessing!

So, here they are. I’ve setup a SmugMug account, so the links below will take you to my account there. (Smugmug is great when you have a lot of pictures so show.) You’ll see some thumbnail pics with a single picture enlarged. What I’d suggest is clicking on the first thumbnail, and when the picture loads, use the navigation at the top to look at each picture. You can select larger pictures by the way, so if you have a 19-inch monitor or larger, I’d suggest clicking on a larger size.

I hope you enjoy them.

Fripp 2009

Well, here they are. After hours and hours (days? weeks?) behind the camera and in front of my Mac working with my images, I’ve finally gotten my annual family vacation pictures online… again. I love it but sometimes it really is a labor of love. I took hundreds and hundreds of pictures so I had a lot to wade through. Some of them are just so-so and some of them I’m really proud of. I’ve separated the black and whites from the color photos because it makes more sense to view them that way. Lots of work goes into this endeavor of mine but my hope is that you too will enjoy these pictures and they’ll bring a smile to your face like they do me.

Fripp was, again, great this year with wonderful weather and wonderful memories made. We are so blessed to get to take this annual trip and spend time at the beach with my brothers, sister-in-laws, mom and dad, nephews, nieces, the whole lot of us. What a blessing! We’re already looking forward to next year.

So, here are the pictures I shot of our trip. I’ve setup a SmugMug account, so the links below will take you to my account there. (Smugmug is great when you have a lot of pictures so show.) You’ll see some thumbnail pics with a single picture enlarged. What I’d suggest is clicking on the first thumbnail, and when the picture loads, use the navigation at the top to look at each picture. You can select larger pictures by the way, so if you have a 19-inch monitor or larger, I’d suggest clicking on a larger size.

I hope you enjoy them.

Finally, another blog post! And this one with pics from several months ago. Yes, I know… I’m lame…

We went to Angie’s good friend’s wedding in mid-May in Lexington. Spent a lovely weekend there and shared a nice room with our good friends Joel and Lee-Anne Fenwick. Joel’s buddy worked for the hotel chain and was able to supersize our room at no cost to us. Suh-weet.

Andrea and Kevin got married on a horse farm in a renovated barn next to a country house with several barns and horses nearby, a beautiful area known as Agnus Dei Farm). The storms mostly held off except for some crazy wind. Angie and Lee-Anne both played in the wedding (piano and violin respectively) and did a great job despite the hurricane wind. You can see from the pics that, while some sun was out, the storms lurked in the background.

I didn’t take any pics of the event since the pros were there and I didn’t want to be in their way. Ironically, I don’t have any of Kevin and Andrea, they were running around rehearsing, taking care of things, and such. So, here are some shots of us hanging out, getting ready, some horses, barn cats, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera…

(Click on the first thumbnail and the picture will load on the screen. Then, to change pictures, put your mouse over the upper-right or upper-left of the photo to see the “next” or “previous” photos in the set. No need to close it each time and click on the next thumbnail.)
