That is the case with Chris and Ellen. Chris and my husband, Charles, are "brothers from another mother." It's quite a wonderful relationship they have and I've really enjoyed getting to know Chris, mostly from afar, as Charles and I moved to the West Coast less than a year after we started dating. Through Chris, I've had the opportunity to get to know his wife Ellen and, two years ago, Charles was the best man at their wedding. I was not the official photographer, but as the wife of one of the wedding party, I had a lot of time on my hands so I brought my camera. I had a lot of fun snapping pictures of the two of them at such a picturesque location, the Rosemont Manor in Berryville, Virginia.

365in2015: 6.16.15: Kayaking in Elliot Bay https://photos.mrtoomey.com/blog/2015/6/365in2015-6-16-15-kayaking-in-elliot-bay I have a really great day job: The Seattle Aquarium. That means that I get opportunities to go kayaking in Elliot Bay in order to bond with my co-workers and to speak more fully about the education opportunities during our summer camps. Obviously, amazing.

On this particular adventure I took my older Canon body and lease expensive lens and shot 7 pictures. These three were the only ones that turned out because, well, it's hard to pay attention to aperture and shutter speed AND not getting wet AND maybe, possibly, not angering your fellow kayakers. But, hey, I think these are pretty awesome! 365in2015: 6.16.15: Mooring Bouy365in2015: 6.16.15: Mooring BouyElliot Bay, Seattle, Washington 365in2015: 6.11.15: Mooring Buoy365in2015: 6.11.15: Mooring BuoyElliot Bay, Seattle, Washington 365in2015: 6.16.15: Bell Harbor365in2015: 6.16.15: Bell HarborBell Harbor, Elliot Bay, Seattle, Washington

Here are a few of the pictures before the festivities. She and her best friend Grace Miller, just hanging out before the big moment.

It was such a pleasure to capture her movements on her unicycle, hijack some prom photos, and have a great time at Gas Works Park.
