Hi, everybody! Sorry I’ve been so silent here on the blog for the last, or 12 days or so. I’ve been in France and London, and the pics above are from my Father’s Day dinner last night in London with my son (center) and two absolute strangers, better known as Dave Clayton and Peter Treadway. Top men for sure! Well, Dave did the whole walrus thing, but outside of that, top men.

I have so much to share…..

So many pictures and stories, but just about none of it is ready (I still have a ton of images to go through, and a Spark page to create, and hopefully I’ll have all that on Friday with any luck).

We had some blue sky and sunshine in London. Hey, it happens. ;-)

Had an awesome dinner with old friends and even made some new ones. :) From Back to Front: Piotr in the very back. Richard O’Keefe, Me, Jordan, Brigitte and Ben Gathercole-Day, Peter Treadway, and Brian Worley.

Spent a glorious Day with Dave Williams

Yes, that Dave. The “Capture with Dave” Dave. The Dave of “Travel Tuesdays with Dave,” Dave. We shot all over town; had a marvelous burger at “Honest Burger” and just generally had a ball. Dave is a boss! In fact, he has “the keys to London.” (wink).

Dave posing in front of the restaurant named after his nickname “St. Paul” named thus for his year after year inability to get me in to shoot inside St. Paul’s Cathedral, despite the fact that he’s done it himself, and sent me his great pics to shame me.
That’s me and Claire, Her Royal Awesomeness. I took the train to Ely to shoot the wonderful cathedral there with her, and we had such an epic day. Claire is the best! :)
We had lunch in a proper pub. It was yummy. Cricket was on TV. I don’t know what to say after that, but lunch was great; we had lots of laughs, and it was really fun shooting in the cathedral. It would be, once again, the only cathedral I would shoot within England (see how I managed to get a Dave jab in there? It’s a gift).

Le Mimo!

I got to spend a week in France with one of my favorite people — Mimo Meidany. Incredible photographer. Long exposure master. Composition master. Yes, all of the those, but one of the nicest guys on the planet, too. My son and I loved getting to hang out with him (it was my son’s first time meeting him, and he’s a Mimo fan now, too!).

OK, I gotta run. I am heading home today, and I’ll catch you up on all the other stuff soon, but I just wanted to let you know where I’ve been, and that I’m heading home. Can’t wait to see my girls! (Kalebra, Yittle, Maggie and Maki). :)

Cheers, and we’ll talk soon. :)
