#OrlandoUnited

“I give you a new commandment – to love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
‭‭—John‬ ‭13:34‬ ‭NET‬‬

I had the opportunity to stop at Pulse while on an errand in Orlando on Monday. Out of respect, I did not wish to capture in photos any of the dozens of people who were there to reflect, mourn or add to the amazing mountain of candles and flowers and posters and stuffed animals that are there. It’s an emotionally charged scene that calls us to remember that in all things, love always wins.

Just Married

“Marriage is the golden ring in a chain whose
beginning is a glance and whose ending is Eternity.”
~ Kahlil Gibran ~

I had the pleasure of photographing my first wedding over the weekend and it was a beautiful celebration of unity, love and friendship. I have to admit I got pretty excited when I learned the newlyweds really like B&W. 🙂 I wish them heartfelt congratulations and much joy on the road of life they will walk together, hand in hand.

Yellow Dog Eats Statue

Yeah, I got your curiosity with that post title, didn’t I? The statue in the photo is actually located on the porch of a wonderful (and popular!) restaurant named Yellow Dog Eats outside Orlando in the small town of Gotha. Thus, while I’ll admit intentional misdirection in the hope of appealing to your curiosity, it should be noted that I delivered what the title of this post promised. I hope you like it. [By the way, what’s up with the funky fingers on this thing?]

Towering Shadows

“Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”

Orange County Courthouse

The downtown Orlando skyline has certainly changed over the years, and the Orange County Courthouse is one of the few buildings not yet crowded out of view by the further advances of progress. Completed in 1997, the current courthouse stands 416 feet tall. The 23-story building has 9,500 windows looking out on Orlando – a numbing fact considering how much I hate washing the 16 windows in my single-story home.

Concrete Parallels

“A farmer who had a quarrelsome family called his sons and told them to lay a bunch of sticks before him. Then, after laying the sticks parallel to one another and binding them, he challenged his sons, one after one, to pick up the bundle and break it. They all tried, but in vain. Then, untying the bundle, he gave them the sticks to break one by one. This they did with the greatest ease. Then said the father, Thus, my sons, as long as you remain united, you are a match for anything, but differ and separate, and you are undone.”
– Aesop

Cleo the Cat

“The cat is above all things a dramatist.”
– Margaret Benson

Tortie’s seem to have very distinct and vocal personalities. Cleo is no different. At 11 years old, she is very affectionate and very curious, but very specific about wanting things on her terms. It took a while to gain her confidence and peak her interest in what was going on, but eventually the moment came. Here’s the photo; I hope she likes it.
