Away

Personal

Sorry I won’t be around for the next two weeks. I am going to Scotland on October 20th, returning to San Francisco on October 29th and flying out to Connecticut a few hours later to shoot a wedding on Halloween.

Unfortunately, my trip to Scotland is not one for fun or weddings, but to see my grandmother who has been struggling with dementia for the past few years and now looks to have lung cancer. She is actually my namesake as her maiden name is Lindsay. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of my family since my grandmother had 12 children and I have lost count of the cousins I have all over the world.

Hopefully I’ll be back with a few pictures of the beautiful green countryside and some of my relatives too.

Please keep my family in your thoughts.

Thanks,
Lindsay

O flower of Scotland
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen
And stood against him
Proud Edward’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

We chatted and agreed to meet at Tinto one year ago to ...

March Facebook Cover Images
Yes, my March post is late but, you know what? Spring is late and by more than 5 days! Enough!!!!I am pale and cold and so cantankerous right now! I haven’t run in ages because I can’t bring myself to get outside in the grimy slush that is everywhere. The season had better get its act together STAT!  This is my birthday month and I want picnics and daffodils, dammit!Every month, I feature new images for download for you to use as your Facebook cover photo. This month I offer up what we should be seeing outside right now. See that first picture? It’s dirt (dərt). You probably don’t remember what it looks like. Those other things; ...

May Desktop Images
Wedding season is upon us! May is officially my busiest month this year and for good reason – everything is lush and green. My daffodils are gone but irises are coming out and the whole area just breathes. Hopefully we’ll have more than a handful of days of that spring perfection before balmy summer comes along. And my couples hope so too. You’ll be seeing some incredible weddings and engagement sessions this season – I’ve got them all over Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. And that’s only in the next two months!I’m starting this month strong at the Broad Street Run. Are you going? Perhaps you’ll see me there ...
