Beer Me

A few weeks ago, my good friend Carm and her sister planned a lovely beer tour of the City of Brotherly Love for her brother-in-law. I don’t remember all the places we went, but I remember that we rode around on a school bus, and that they thought of everything.  They even made labels for everyone in case we got lost and needed to be returned, and made snacks we couldn’t lose.

My favorite shot of the day is still this one.  I love the way that no matter what else is happening, Carm always looks fabulous.  Also, it’s typical that all the dudes that have no idea that a camera is pointing their direction.  Dudes.
