his daughter's wedding and collected the cameras afterwards. Each 
guest got the photos he had taken. My friend had a copy of each and 
every photo taken. Among them some of the funniest and nicest and 
most relaxed wedding photos you ever saw. And there was no 
photographer to blame for all those photos that were not, shall we 
say, up to expectations.
