    My wifes uncle Rick Wilking (Reuters) and family were in town over the weekend for what they thought would be a 29th wedding anniversary for some other family members. Little did they know that it was actually a surprise b-day party for both of them (since they both turn 50 in a month or so) so I got to play photographer for the day :shock:

    It just felt really strange being on the opposite side of the camera from someone who has spent their entire life crossing the globe with a camera in hand. Almost seemed sacreligious or something :lol: In the end I snapped off a few that aren't too bad but unfortunately I had a good deal with camera shake in them :(

    Sharon, Me, Angela (my wife), and Rick . . .

    Not the best stuff but at least I learned ALOT about my new flash. It is definately true what they say about E-TTL being inconsistant in harsh backlight/fill situations :confused:

    Oh, the first makes me happy to see, for I get to see you yourself, Canon Fan, and your wife. She looks wonderful in her present stage. The last time I was expecting, I found the last 4 weeks hardest to stand, not because I was so big and everything felt so heavy, but because I was so curious! I so wanted to KNOW at last the little person who had been living inside me for all that while by then ;).

    Rick has the same look on his face that I get whenever I see a camera - "I'm supposed to be behind that - not in front of it!"

    Glad the party went well!
