Default People in my life recently

Just a random assortment of people that are important to me.

1). Girls in the hood, came by to honor this old Vietnam vet. Vey humbling, they are very sweet girls. The one on the left, Cailiegh's grandpa was a Vietnam vet. He died suddenly of a heart attact about two months ago. Age 67. Too young.



2). Cailiegh by herself. They did this on their own, and got help from Cailiegh's grandpa, John for the boonie hats and camouflage.



3). My brother in law, Mike. He has written and published four books, three satire and one romantic comedy.



4). He is an avid photog as well. His dad was Walt Disney's personal photographer. Mike owns some priceless pictures, and has his dad's camera collection.



5). This is Roccio, our waitress at Hooter's on Pensacola Beach. She was a sweetheart, but my pictures were very contrasty, to say the least. What's the old saying? Some days you're the windshield, and some days you're the bug.



6). Roccio, emptying the pitcher, and Mike, looking like the cat that just ate the canary.



7). Couldn't resist...A recent picture of my granddaughter, Bella, at the beach.



OK, that's probably enough. Thanks for viewing. Comments and critiques are always appreciated.

Thanks Mike. My brother in law is my wife's younger sister's husband. Lucky me! Think about that one...

Haha! What I meant by that was..I'm glad my wife took after her sister, and not Mike. Mike would make an UGLY woman.

Mike lives in Orlando, and we get down two times a year, or so. On one of our trips he got out a large trunk that was full of one-of-a-kind memorabilia, pictures, and Life magazines. All the pics for the magazine covers were shot by Mike's dad, Carl.

That is a great set Hawg, really well done candid photos and I really like that theme, people in your life. This kind of photography is sooo much more interesting to me anyway than "studio shoots". One thing though, those girls in the first photos need serious help with their makeup.
