History does indeed repeat itself...

Generation after generation have come and gone like the birds of the field and the lilies of the valley... Yet to seed and be reborn.

The human difference is mentoring... the passing of more than the intuitive drawing of the first breath... but the noble thoughts: do unto other as we would have them do unto us.

Art & architecture classified, Music has been codified, as has medicine, math, chemistry & physics...

To probing into the very architecture that is our creation. To decipher the mystery of our own creation. learning and notng as we proceed so that subsequent generations can START with the lessons of Plato, Socrates, Galen, Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Tesla and the likes of Einstein ...

The compassion & empathy of Churchill at Dunkirk & Lincoln at Gettysburg...

All cataloged and sorted onto tedious fields of civic & science called modern education... Would be meaningless... had not their nobility, relevance & compassion had not been imbued by my loving PARENTS.

The significance of those DEFEATED crusaders returning to Europe after the crusades... Protesting the abusive taxes and devastatingly feckless leadership that brought GREAT SUFFERING to the peasants... PROVOKED the magna carta...
and those first notions of people NOT BEING BIT PART PLAYERS in some one else's EXISTANCE & Divinity.

This is the epitome of parent-hood... of gentility & chivalry
belonged not just to the NOBILITY... but to the plebiscite (all GOD's creatures) as well.

Those parents then...
and these parents now taught their children to expect more...

That notion that as a family... we humans can nurture, teach, enable & empower our children to rise above and beyond those barriers we though impregnable.

A global community so enamored of itself... that we forgot
we were in the icy waters of the NORTH ATLANTIC... No longer
in the warmth of the (illusion of the) UNSINKABLE Titanic...

But ready to hit those waters... where without a life boat... one could expect to survive less than a minute...

Because I am well equipped by my parents on the art of humanity & survival... I am able to discern that CRITICAL MOMENT
when OUR LIFE-BOAT is at capacity... and must be withdrawn in order to save some.. Rather than FEEL GOOD and kill everyone.

While leaving behind those NOBLE CREW & MUSICIANS who sacrificed themselves in the last few moments of a horrific human tragedy... Played on to the comfort & safety of others.

For these insights... and the wisdom required to survive the crisis of each & every life... and the Right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness... (that obligation)...

I toast my wonderful parents for imparting the wisdom of science & the arts handed down through generations... to me... for my children... History can be a little more than just thoughtful.

Bless my parents & Thank God.

I'm afraid to walk down the aisle at my wedding, what can I do?

Have someone walk with you. If you focus on the person you are about to marry, this anxiety will be very short lived and you will be happy that you got through it. Treat it like a rehearsal, not the actual ceremony. Having someone along side will ease your tension greatly! Best of luck!

Assay about graduation.... give me a example of assay of graduation

Prior graduation arrangements include student's responsibilities. First, provide the details to registrar department to compile academic resources requisite. For example, informing the school registrar about intentions makes certification documentation either in pursuit of career or reacquiring advance education on same campus or elsewhere. Prior graduation arrangement from school requesting student participation would be attainable. For example, among mentionable are request participation to ceremony of graduation. Details about the process are attainable from registrars also from academic counselors from students departments. Third, participation at the entire events is organized by students department also from the school in recognition of completion of academic processes. An elaborate description of the event includes graduates presence at gathering comprising school staff among which student's department officials.

I was somehow roped into shooting a friend's night wedding this weekend, even though my photography "expertise" is entirely limited to shooting in natural light. I am a total amateur (and my friend knows...

First, you MUST practice with the flash before you shoot the wedding. If at all possible arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony with a friend/model to pose for you so you can practice with the settings until you understand what will and will not work.

Use manual exposure settings (e.g. 1/60th at f5.6) on the camera, and let the flash work in automatic mode to provide the light needed to shoot with the manual settings. Don't try to use flash on subjects further than about 10-15 feet as it won't provide enough light to go that distance - light falls off according to the "square of the distance", so the amount of light you have at 10 feet is 1/4th the light you have at 5 feet (rather than 1/2 the light like you might think). Practice with your model to learn how far your model can be before the flash falls off too much. To shoot at the greatest distance, open the aperture (e.g. f2.8). You can use a smaller aperture only when your subjects are fairly close.

I can't give you exact settings for your flash on a Nikon as I'm a Canon shooter. Look in your camera manual and the flash manual for iTTL.

Do NOT try to shoot in aperture priority. The camera will use a very slow shutter (appropriate for that aperture) to gather the background light, and the flash will provide "flash fill" and you will get motion blur from your hand-holding the camera and from the subjects moving during the long exposure.

Most ministers don't allow flash photography during the actual ceremony, so you need to shoot in available light during the ceremony. Normally you can use flash during the procession to/from the altar, but once the bride reaches the altar you need to stop using flash. If the ceremony is in a dark location (dark church) this can be very VERY difficult. You need fast glass, an f2.8 (or faster) lens for this and will need to shoot at the highest ISO your camera offers. You may want to return to the rental place to rent a fast lens if you don't have one already.

Obviously you need to stay ahead of the action. This means you need to get into the aisle near the end of the service and shoot the kiss from that location, and then shoot the couple as they proceed down the aisle after the ceremony.

If at all possible, take posed photos BEFORE the ceremony. Try to have a 1-hour window to take these photos that ends 1-hour before the ceremony starts. If you can't take the posed photos before the ceremony, try to limit the after-ceremony photos to just a few groups - some photos of bride and groom, with the whole wedding party, with the bride's family, the groom's family, and everyone (all family members and wedding party). Take 3 or more shots of each group so you can swap in eyes or faces if someone looks great in one shot and someone else looks great in a different shot.

Good luck!
