THREE DAY THRESHOLD - MIDDLE EAST DOWNSTAIRS - JULY 7, 2007

It sure is great getting back to these flashback posts!

July 7th 2007 was an extremely busy day for wedding photographers everywhere. 7-7-7 was just too good a date to pass up for all that souvenir wedding swag.

So I found myself at a familiar stomping ground photographing an even more familiar band: Three Day Threshold led by my former boss in Northeastern's mail room Kier Byrnes. While I only took a few "good" photos, this certainly will not be the last you see of TDT!
