My wife has a good eye!

Jo is a good photographer!  She has a real natural eye for an interesting subject and has especially shined through the years with candid portraits.  She has a way of making the person comfortable then catching just the right moment to get that great expression.

Recently she ventured into digital photography and has been unofficially the official photographer for our band.  Last night we were playing for a fundraiser in Freight House Square, downtown Tacoma.  She took some colorful pictures of each of the band members then turned around and started watching the crowd.   A cute, spirited gal with bobby socks and red shoes was really stealing the show.  Jo loved the way she danced and how her red shoes sparkled when the light hit them just right.   After taking a few shots she timed it perfectly and caught this image.

When we were all done for the night I stepped outside onto the deck to cool off.  She stood back with her wide angle lens and made this photo with me framed in the doorway.  I love it!  Both images are visually interesting and capture the flavor of the night perfectly.
