What a beautiful setting ... wouldn't you like to photograph a large wedding in a setting like this? ;D

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks Judy! No, I would not like to photograph any weddings at all..ever! I do not like photographing social events, or people, in general. Even pictures of my kids I do not take often... :(( But definitely this is a lovely place for people to get married, and I assume many weddings are going on in this place, as it is a famous place.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Maybe i should rephrase my comment ... would you take photos from THIS vantage point while a large wedding was going on? The festivities from afar could be interesting. <grin>

@Judy aka L@dybug: that would probably be nice...and even nicer if he was just him and her in miniature (due to the distance)... you took me too seriously Judy, is not like I never had people in my images, occasionally I allow one or 2 to intrude :)) or even took a few portraits as well.. Thanks! Have a wonderful week!
