In the spirit of October, I bring you…
A fun shot of a strangely sad scene… the dying field of sunflowers was so solemn, so strange to view, that I had to stop and take some photos of it. Usually they are the happiest of flowers, you know?

Bridal photo- This photo was taken right before the ceremony, and the bride (who was quite nervous) looks confident and radiant as she waits in hiding for the ceremony to start. I love her style, she made the beautiful photos very easy to take!
This one is headed for the wedding portfolio on www.kelleybard.com.
I was woefully late (almost a full week) in posting photos from last weekend’s wedding shoot, so here you go. Great, relaxed couple that I’ve been blessed to photograph several times. They wanted an autumn-ish wedding, so I processed it with a warm glow to show off all of the flower colors and such. Fun to shoot, for sure!

BTW, I’m sitting here late at night, downloading music, listening to much more awake tunes than I should be at this hour, working on photos. How lucky am I?? Life is great.
Sometimes you just see beauty and want to capture it, so that you can remember it later. That was the deep down feeling I had when I saw this rainbow. This was actually part of a double rainbow near where I live, but I focused tight on the brightest one. And boy, did it just keep going brighter and brighter… for almost an hour. Very impressive.

The first photo has gotten many early positive reviews from others, and I’m glad- it was a bit of post-production work and I’m always happy when that goes off well. The second… well, it’s todays photo so I’ll report back if I get lots of responses. Or if YOU respond, which I always love! Also, with these moments into people’s lives photos… if you know who this is, I would love to be able to contact them. I was glad to get to photograph this moment for them and for others.

Just a favorite little spot, and a beautiful flower from there.
Filbert St. Steps in San Francisco. Ever heard of it? It’s the best secret spot there. Guaranteed to be tourist free most of the time, mainly because it is STEEP. But it’s once in a lifetime. A tropical secret path on the backside of the Coit Tower hill, kept up beautifully by the people who live off the pathway. Quiet, green, beautiful views… it’s got it all. I love it. Also absurdly romantic… But the best part is something I haven’t even seen, which is the flock of wild parrots (pet escapees for 40+ years) which lives on this hillside as well. So you have views of the Bay Bridge, the wharf area, Coit Tower, and beautiful, unimaginably tropical foliage and animals. All on a deserted San Francisco street. What’s not to love?
I’ll post a pic of the pathway soon… I was just so in love with this flower against the palms that I had to show it off.

So, what do you think? different crops, images, processing… Up to you, really. Let me know your thoughts. I know that I think the out of focus B&W is my favorite. But all are enjoyable.
More at www.kelleybard.com. I’ll be gone for a few days but back bursting with new, exciting travel images and a new wedding in early Sept. So come back soon!
