2015 Photo Some Days – Photobomb for Charity

IMA Dallas’ annual Sandblast charity event took place on September 17, 2015 and was a smashing success. Benefitting Junior Achievement of Dallas and the IMA Foundation, we moved our venue this year to the Sandbar Cantina & Grill in Dallas’ Deep Ellum neighborhood. Several of IMA’s business partners and clients participated in the event. I was particularly impressed with the skill and stamina of many of the volleyball teams, as they continued to play hard as the mercury climbed into the mid-90’s yesterday afternoon.

Sandblast Photobomb!

Of course, we managed to have lots of fun in the process of raising money for these worthy causes. For me, the personal high point of my day was FINALLY delivering my first-ever photobomb! Indeed, I have attempted to bomb many a portrait as the phenomenon has gained in popularity, but have always managed to be busted prior to the shot. This, however, was perfectly timed as two of my coworkers posed for the camera. We work hard at IMA, and I feel particularly blessed to work with a group of good, fun-loving people.

But all joking aside, we raised $15,000 for Junior Achievement, and that is a worthwhile achievement in and of itself. It is indeed a blessing to work for a company that gives so much to the communities in which we live and work.

IMA Sandblast is an annual event. If you have interest in joining us next year, give me a shout. It’s lots of fun and supports a very worthwhile cause.

2015 Photo-Some-Days 5.18.2015

I love weddings. They are one of the happiest occasions we as humans celebrate. My niece was married in Georgetown, TX this past weekend. During the photo session after the ceremony, I handed my iPhone to one of the groomsmen and asked him to take a photo of our family with the bride & groom. As we were being positioned by the photographer, he snapped this candid with a very nice “Hook ’em Horns” in the foreground. I really like this shot, as it takes me back 20 or so years to the time in my life when I served as a groomsmen in several weddings. This is something I would have done had the uncle of the bride asked me to snap a pic on his cell phone. It brought a smile to my face when I first discovered it in my camera roll late last night. To the anonymous groomsman I say, “well played, sir!”

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.¬† For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. ~ Genesis 2:22-24
