I’m close friends with two generations of a family. The younger generation invited me to a surprise fiftieth wedding anniversary party for the older generation at H2Ocean Restaurant and Raw Bar in Cedar Knolls, NJ. Coming as a guest, my intention was to enjoy the party, not photograph it. I happened to have my equipment with me because I arrived directly from photographing an event that afternoon. I couldn’t resist making a few photographs as a gift to my friends. I got to enjoy the party, too.
