Arriving at Mr. Smith's in SF for Melissa's white-themed birthday party, she easily stood out with her pink dress amongst the crowd. Once she turned around, the sense of familiarity came over me and I asked her whether she knew of a Kathleen...turns out she did and that her Kathleen is my cousin!
Needless to say, the night started off with a bang!
The bar was rented from 7-10, and by the time 9 o'clock rolled around the place was packed with white suits and dresses. Eventually the familiarity of Melissa's face evolved into recognizing a few more friends and guests, including my cousin.
White is always a troublesome color when using flash since it reflects so easily...I was also trying out my new flash (580 EX II) for the first time that evening since my old flash (550 EX) was giving me some problems. Since Melissa was a good friend of Kathleen's, I ended up staying til about 1230, filling up my memory card with numerous model poses :)
