Prepping the Getaway Car for Departure
Nikon FE, 50mm f/1.8, Kodak Portra 800
Balloons, streamers, ribbons, ice cream, and smoke bombs…what’s the worst that could happen? There’s something about being in the bridal party that conveys this feeling of, “Anything we do is totally awesome,” I think. Am I the only one that gets this narcissistic rush?
I wasn’t there when the unfortunate couple made their getaway; I had cranky children that were out way past bedtime. Sadly it didn’t sound like the smoke bombs did much - just sort of fizzled out some smoke right as they ran to the car, and that was it. I almost wish they hadn’t told me, then I could’ve kept the image of the car speeding down the highway with smoke pouring out from the hood, blinding the drivers so they end up…eh, well, okay then maybe I am glad they told me.
