I noticed this road sign at a wedding today but did not have time to look at the front of it. I spent odd moments during the rest of the day wondering what it could mean...eventually just as I was dropping off to sleep I realised it had surely once read "school". I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer...

I really enjoyed the wedding as we managed to do plenty of outdoor shots. My boss entrusted me with the signing of the register pictures and most of the group shots. I am just praying they turned out all right.

I had some problems with my flash again and I'm not sure if it's me doing something wrong or the flash playing up.

Sometimes I wonder why on earth I'm trying to do this - one of the most pressured and stressful aspects of photography - when I know so little. Many of the photos I took last weekend, I hate. Sometimes I feel I'm going backwards...

Oh CG! Don't get discouraged! I'm sure you are much harder on yourself than you should be!!

It takes so much courage to do what you are doing.....I would be scared to death! I admire you for that courage!!!

See now I thought the 'choo' was a cute railroad crossing sign.

I can't imagine you going backwards. We all do the dance of 1 step forward, 2 steps back but then moments come along and we skip ahead.

You my friend are most definitely a skipper.

Hi Julie - I can sympathise with how you feel. Steve says to me, you always think other people's pictures are better than your own. If you are doing group shots already, I would say he's more than happy with what you are producing.

Ah...Choo. I get it. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
Great shots and I'm so glad you are persuing the wedding business. Great pictures and your kind manner must put the bride and groom at ease.

Diane and I must think alike -- I also thought the sign was some cute English saying "choo" for train...
