“Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current.” -—Marcus Aurelius
There’s no one more hopeful and happy than a bride about to get married. They have an unmistakeable radiance that shines not only on their world, but on everyone around them.
It was the perfect early autumn afternoon in Novi Sad, Serbia. The temperature hovered around 90, but the bride was cool, calm and collected standing in the shady courtyard by the church, chatting with friends and posing for the camera.
Our blogging buddy Carol at Which Way Now 101 invited us to participate in a B&W photo challenge. We don’t use many black and white shots in our blog posts, so it sounded like an interesting challenge.
There’s something irresistible about a bride, decked out in her wedding finery. Whether she’s wearing a silken sari in Sri Lanka, or a lacy gown in Spain, you can’t help but smile.
When we arrived at the temple we could tell that a celebration was taking place. Blaring music, people chatting, and kids scurrying about wearing special-occasion clothes. A Buddhist wedding.
