Wedding Party. Edison Estate on the Caloosahatchee River. Fort Myers, Florida. March  2011. Re-posted by Paul Goldfinger- 2018—-Blogfinger.net ©

—Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.

This photo requires a bit of narrative.  It’s a gorgeous  Saturday in Fort Myers, Florida, at the Edison Estate  (the winter home of  Thomas A.).  We’re milling about, sizing up the tour which we are about to take, when a white limo pulls up.  Out spills the bridal party. The wedding photographer is fumbling with his equipment, and the women form a protective ring around the bride.

So here I am with my camera, and this scene unfolds right in front of me. I pick up my Leica and start shooting. I’m caught up in the event; I’m a paparazzi, circling the scene like a shark—moving in with my wide angle lens.

Just then, a cell phone rings multiple times, with the sound coming from the right side.  It’s  the bride’s mother’s phone.   I snap the photo, and then the bride says, “Mom!! I think your phone’s ringing!!”

Editor’s note:  The bride was so beautiful;   I can’t leave it like this–with Mom’s phone ringing.  Let’s fast forward and imagine a moment later in the day when all attention is focused on the bride.

Here are the JAGUARS:  This is one of the all-time great love songs—-By Jerome Kern  (music) and Dorothy Fields lyrics.  She said that she cried when she first heard Kern’s melody.

Speaking of bike riding, this guy in Asbury Park was following the white line all the way, not distracted by the events to the left or the right. Personally, I would have stopped and taken a picture. Uh…. actually, that is what I did, but I was walking.   The bike rider was illegal at that time of day, while the wedding party was OK.

One time I walked onto the OG beach to watch and photograph a wedding party that was having a photo shoot by the jetty near the pier.   The father of the bride came down from the pier to yell at me for taking pictures.  I pointed out to him that they were in a public place, so I had every right to take pictures.

He was really mad, and, for me it wasn’t worth having my Leica digital camera tossed into the Atlantic Ocean, so I gave up being a wedding photographer that day.  After all, it is sort of trite.  But who can resist a wedding, especially when it is on the beach or inside the Casino or on the boardwalk?  —-not me, but the biker?  He seems immune to the distraction.    —Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.net

For a while…”
