Robinson Family Medicine Ribbon Cutting Event

Jo was really excited as Dr. Robinson cut the ribbon on her new business!

 There was a very large turnout for the Robinson Family Medicine ribbon cutting event.  Much more than I expected.  This was the second ribbon cutting in as many weeks that I photographed for the Saint Petersburg Chamber of Commerce.  Each in a totally different setting and offering its own photography challenges.  However, I was allowed to choose the spot for the actual ribbon cutting and had ample time to dial in manual settings on my Nikon D300 and SB-600 Speedlight to get the above shot.  I could not have asked for a better reaction from Jo to make the shot have a little something extra.

There was a raffle after the ribbon cutting . . . 

 An unwatched raffle bowl is a vulnerable thing . . .

. . . someone may just sneak a hand and, but they were caught!

It was my first time inside Bank of America Tower, which is not that much to look at on the outside, but has an impressive lobby with great light beaming through during the golden hour.  I will return to photograph inside there some day.
