long day

Brunch at Karl's with my SIL and BIL and my daughter's family. medium_2006-07-29_018.jpgWe love that place. Out in the country, nice people, excellent food with an Austrian flavor. The venison and apple salad was wonderful. M ate blintz after Grandpa told her they were cheese pancakes.
Do I have to admit I ate too much? Of course, I did. And drank mimosas. Then we cruised around old town Richmond and headed back for home. Took a break from visiting and made up some photo album pages of the pictures we took in the morning for my SIL to take home to great grandma. Maybe next time she'll feel like coming along.
Spent the evening at J's house. She worked on her torch making beads. We watched "Miss Congeniality" and rocked the baby. Then we watched a CD of all the photos of the family wedding from last May where M was the flower girl. Are all photographers taking odd angled shots on every other photo? medium_bruce_diane_slanted_1965.jpgWhen I was in school, we learned that approach to graphics is to make the viewer feel uneasy and off balance. Not something I think you want to feel when looking at your wedding photos. Stability, constancy, not Hitchcock-type foreboding. Cue the soundtrack for the shower scene in Psycho, please, it's time for the bride to walk up the aisle.
