What a weekend, friends! Lights, cameras, and some serious action were the order of the day, chez English. Cameras on the roof, cameras on the ground, video cameras, polaroid cameras, iphone cameras-cameras, cameras, cameras!
It was seriously fun. I have a bit of camera experience under my belt from way, way back in the day, when I’d film a monthly news segment for West Carteret High, my ’94 alma mater, at the local cable affiliate’s offices. That said, it’s been, oh, almost two decades since I squared off with a camera and did my thing under its lens.
We had a blast. The weather completely accommodated and our pickling party on the patio (say that 5 times fast!) was a total success. Thank you so much to the amazing Dark Rye crew for including me, to Jen for her always stellar photo chops, for Ian‘s steady video hand (he’s working on a promo trailer for the new book), and for my incredible pals Greyson, Maria, Cat, Scott, Jen, Rich, Jenny, and Hannah for seriously bringing their A-game (look at that table spread for proof; I mean, come ON!). Lastly, but never least, thanks to my ever-faithful Hubs, who’s always got my back, my front, my sides, and everything in between. You’re the man.
Thanks to Maria for her own candid camera images pictured here!
