The birthday girl, my Mom, Hazel Louise Morris

Party Crashing Gear

On September 23 past, my Mom, Hazel Morris, celebrated her 90ieth birthday in fine fashion at Tate’s Restaurant in Nesconset, NY not far from her home in Holbrook, Long Island. Four generations were in attendance. I brought along the 24-105 zoom, the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, the EOS-5D Mark III, and the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. For the most part I worked in Program mode at ISO 800 adding and subtracting light as best I could. The flash was kept at -2/3 stop. Most of the images are straight out of camera.

My Mom loves doing jigsaw puzzles. Denise came up with the idea of having puzzles made from our photos. Here is my Mom with her Snow Monkey puzzle.

I am eternally grateful to Kenny Giles. He made my former wife Dana happy and is a great grandpa as well. Dana is the mother of Jennifer and Alissa. Dana and Kenny live near my Mom and Alissa and Ilene.
