good party, bad photos

I’ve been busy since coming back from our trip to Philadelphia, having work begin to heat up, a business trip to Toledo, and then (the day after I returned) playing pit crew at two regattas for Ted But here finally are some photos from my parents’ 50th anniversary party. I have to say that I’m not too pleased how these came out; I don’t know if the camera was having a bad day or if it’s just that we aren’t as good at photographing people as we are at landscapes, but I didn’t get as many good shots as I hoped for. Of course there’s the usual problem with getting a snapshot of someone just as they were talking, but also, a disappointing number of the images were blurry. Here are a few of the (somewhat) better ones (I do really like that one profile shot of Dad, at least). Click on any photo to see it larger.

(If you were there and don’t see as many photos of yourself as you’d like, trust me, it’s for the best. You’re way better looking than that photo came out, I promise.)

And for extras, here’s a photo we took later in the week, of Boathouse Row from behind the Art Museum.
