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

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 M-9 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.)  Dorothy said that she cried when she first heard Kern’s melody.

LANA DEL REY “Blue Velvet.”    This song is from 1950, and Tony Bennett was the first to have a hit with it.  Lana Del Rey is a currently active recording star who made this version first in 2012, and it was well received.

David Lynch, who made the movie of the same name, liked it very much. Del Rey is a glamorous star who wore an off -the-rack dress from the mall to the Grammy Awards.

The version of Blue Velvet below is from her album Born to Die–the Paradise Edition (2018)

Her latest album was nominated but did not win at the 2020 Grammys. It is very good.
