During my recent visit to Portland, Oregon, my sister and I went on a wine-tasting tour, with her husband Nick graciously chauffeuring us from vineyard to vineyard.
Me, being me, I toted my camera around looking for photo ops while still savoring every glass of pinot noir. And I found my perfect op while enjoying the view from a terrace of one of the vineyards. The light was just perfect, I had my new portrait lens on my camera, and I was feeling very shutter-happy so I made Monica and Nick pose for some portraits.
Now, I'm a little nervous to post these photos without letting Monica and Nick see them first. (So, Monica & Nick, if you don't like these, sorry, but also too late now). But because Nick was so wonderful as our designated driver, I'm not posting any bad shots of him. Favor returned, I think.
