Mel and Dan – Behind the Evening

without comments

Some of you might have seen some pre-wedding photos of Melanie (aka Beautiful) and Daniel (aka Francis) on my Facebook Page. Wedding photos are gonna come up later. Much later, so hang on for now. Here is what went on behind the scenes on that day when we were by the Mandovi.

The freaks, Francis, Beautiful and Ernest dropped by my place and decided to give me a ride.

We were on our way to Panjim. Beautiful, just back from her visit to the church was complaining about all the crazy questions the priest was asking her. We had a good laugh and then indulged in some banter about the Vatican. Shhh!!

And that’s the Ernest we talk about. Ernie the man. All too happy to be sitting around and doing nothing.

We passed by Sangolda.

And in a short while we were passing through Porvorim. The sun was beginning to set. We were racing the clock. Guess who was not too pleased to be losing light. Okay, no points for the correct answer. Me!

Under the Bridge. I always think of RHCP each time I go below the Mandovi bridge. Always.

We zoom past the Panjim jetty.

And then, finally, the Mandovi. The barges had taken over the landscape. Got some test shots though.

You guys might remember this lighthouse from the “Lurking Storm” photo I posted some months back.

There were some birds in the sky.

And an Ernie on the sand.

I told the clowns to take a walk and pretend I’m not there. Told them to indulge in some PG13 activities that would not get any of us arrested. So that’s them, taking a walk by the shore.

Ernie on the other hand took a walk with my tripod.

Oh yeah! Ernie and the tripod. So beautiful. Made for each other.

This stray fellow tried to disrupt proceedings. But was scared away by Francis. Who just showed the dog his face. The rest was history.

The clowns headed towards the rocks.

Ernie headed to the shore.

In between all this nonsense, I did manage to get a few decent shots of the clowns. And then we just decided to goof around. Something we are pros at.

Here are Ernie and Francis. This shot was taken so that I could lock focus points. It was pretty dark btw, the autofocus was going crazy when those amateurs (read Francis) tried to use the camera.

Autofocus locked, and this is what Francis managed to click. Ernie parting with the tripod. It was a sad moment, but what was just had to be done.

And then one shot of Beautiful, me and the leaning lighthouse of.. oh wait, the lighthouse is, no way.

Finally, we called it a wrap and headed off towards what we call home. Beautiful punched the air coz I guess she found a keeper. Amen.

+1 or/and Like this, and create some hype for me. If you’d like me to do a photo story of something in particular, please leave a comment or get in touch with me, I shall try and work things out. Thank you for your patience.
