Shadow Shot Sunday - 25 plus

Shadow Shot Sunday arrives in a momentous week - 25 years of wedded bliss with the always lovely Patti. The celebration this week was low-key, dinner at Antonio's, a new and untried restaurant in Ansonia. Excellent service and food and most excellently, our toast to a milestone. 


We marvel at how beautiful the day was, low humidity and 72° F (22° C), blue skies and nothing sunnier than Patti's radiance nor more brilliant than her dress. The day of 10 May 1986 was the nicest day yet!


Here, someone was getting to the church on time. I did not take this photo, as I was safely inside the church, per custom, awaiting the bride. But the excitement of the day begins at the ceremony - subjects and shadows, from limo driver to the attendants, are ready to begin anew.

Happy Anniversary! WoW! And it's wonderful to hear you call her the "always lovely Patti/" You are such a sweetheart, Ralph. But I think Patti already knows how lucky she is. :)

Long shadows tell me the wedding was not at noon though not knowing the position of the shooter I can't say weather morning or afternoon.
Congratulations on 25 years, though with the right partner and a little patience it shouldn't be difficult to achieve.

Happy Anniversary to you and Patti Ralph! It looks like a lovely day - I had a January wedding that was quite blustery and Karrie, a bright chilly day in March :) Wishing you both all the best on the next 25!

WONDERFUL NONSENSE

A shadow’s a wonderful thing;
O listen! Can you hear it sing?
It tells of a time
Before there was crime—
Trust that and you’ll trust anything!
