FOTOoftheDAY160: Let them eat cake… New wedding folio has landed on a new wedding photography services page. Since I was designing and building a new weding services website, I decided it would be silly to use my old weding portfolio. New Website… new portfolio. Made sense to this photog. I’m excited about all this new media! The folio features 5 of my favorite weddings. It is important to tell the story of a wedding properly. The new folio displays a few of these stories. Check out michaellongweddingphotography.fotograffic.net And if you are planning on getting married and are shopping for a photographer or if you know someone who is, let’s talk!

FOTOoftheDAY159: From the Creepy Church Files. Maybe its all the Slayer I listen to, or the similarity of the phrase on the marque to the title of one of my favorite movies (City of God). I simply, couldn’t resist this shot as I drove down Lancaster Ave. It made me stop. Over the years I’ve photographed a lot of churches. I like to present them in a dark, dare I say almost gothic light. Admittingly, I’m hesitant to use such a culturally loaded term. I’m thinking Heironymous Bosch, not pale 17 year olds named Asriel in combat boots and black lace. I like to show them in the same medieval fire and brimstone, black and white language so much of religion is spoken in. Hmm…maybe it is all the Slayer…

FOTOoftheDAY158: Its a cold day in hell… In fact its so cold that the can of Seltzer in my truck froze. This kind of thing generally tends not to happen in Philly. Its unusually cold here right now, even for January. As I write this the thermometer outside of the office is reading 19F. For you Celsius and Kelvin fans thats -7.6C and 265.93K. On the colloquial scale I believe its ”Below Ball’s Cold” out. -In a strange sort of way I am actually enjoying this weather. Its extreme and unusual nature is a reminder to my body via that painful cold feeling that I am alive. That’s at least what I tell myself before cursing the high winds and low temps. Just a thought… Its only 54 days until spring. And think, just 147 days from now, as summer heats up, it will likely be a 60-70 degrees warmer and we will be cursing the heat.
Regardless of how truly obvious it is to point this out, but DAMN ITS COLD!
