We'll miss you, Bucky.

This past weekend, Buck Franzen, my father-in-law passed away.  Bucky was a lively spirit and kind heart.  He will be missed tremendously.  What I will remember most about Bucky is his zest for life, and ability to make people smile....well except for Slick the cat, but that's another story.  We will miss you always, Bucky.

Bucky and Marcella

A few of my favorite Bird inspired art pieces dedicated to the memory of Bucky.

Door County Trip

Mark and I recently went to Door County for our 5th year anniversary.  It was so relaxing, but too short of a visit.  Stayed at a lovely inn called Lodgings at Pioneer Lane, would definitely go back.  I so enjoy the quiet time we can spend together.  These are a few pictures from our trip.

More Trash the Dress.....this time with Steve Chesler!

So, my second attempt at shooting a Trash the Dress event.  The only water involved this time was the rain.  Fortunately, the many other pro photographers did an excellent job posing the models, so it made it much easier to shoot.  Again, a very fun, and enlightening event.  Steve and Ellen (of Steve Chesler Photography) had so many useful insights.  I'm thrilled that they were able to visit Milwaukee.
