50'th Wedding Anniversary.

83rd place
I have never actually sold an image, but I have occasionally acted as photographer for special occasions on a gratis basis. Soon after my first purchase of a DSLR I was asked to photograph the 50'th wedding anniversary of this delightful couple. It was very much a learning experience for me. This was one of many images that I was able to hand to them as an album of the occasion. That Christmas I received a substantial and unexpected gift that I converted into a small collection of lenses.
