OK. If you read my last post, you will know this is my last photo post for a few days, unless my ankle gets better or my Dell tech shows up for the 4th time to fix my computer. And if you read my last post, you will know that the only reason I had these photos to post is because I forgot to format one of my cameras last night.
Also, if you read my last post (perhaps you should read my last post) you know that, whenever I can, I like to give back to my community. So last night, I hobbled over to Somers Cover Marina to shoot contestants in our upcoming Freedom Fest contest (you will really have to read my last post for all the details on that).
I can't post the photos because the newspaper has not run the story yet, but I can show you Miss Maryland USA 2009, Gabrielle Carlson. She lives about ten minutes up the road. We are all so proud of her.
"Gabi", as her friends call her, had come down to show the girls some pointers and talk to them about the pageant. She was so sweet. I know she will go far in life.
Miss Maryland USA shows the girls how to walk for the camera.
A gracious pose.
Another wonderful pose at Somers Cove Marina.
John John Crabby Crab is getting pretty popular around these parts. Before I left for the shoot, he jumped into my camera bag and popped out just after the shoot, wanting a kiss from Gabi. She was kind enough to make an old crab happy. I think Crabby had actually hoped he would be turned into a prince. No chance now, Crabby. If Gabi could not do it, you are stuck being our town mascot.
Thanks to Gabi, all the Miss Freedom Fest contestants, and to Allison Castellana, our event's coordinator.
Good luck to all the contestants!
And yes, John John Crabby Crab, may decide to write a book one day. Umm? But where will he find the time?
