This is a short video that I have recently added to my website for all those who love weddings. I made this with the help of Amanda and my friend Miquel for our friends Inés and Carlos. They were married on the 21st of September and we were there taking photos and video. There is one small section in Spanish but I am sure everyone can figure out what they are saying whether you speak Spanish or not. It was a great wedding and party afterwards and I hope that I have captured a little of it here. Click here to see it at the multimedia page of Edwin Toone Photography.
The Arab Spring, the Indignados and Occupy Wall Street were all effort to give more a voice to the people. The Procés Constituent is a legal means by which to do it here in Catalunya. It is not as much about independence as one might think but it is a new anti-capitalist program to reverse public spending cuts and nationalize banks and energy companies. Currently there are more than 45,000 people signed up as a part of the Procés Constituent in a Country/Region that has only 7 million. They may not be there yet but they are moving fast.

I headed over to LES Coleman Skatepark under the Manhattan bridge with my nephew Noah and photographed and videoed him tearing it up. It was lots of fun and I only have a few bruises to show for it. When I was 13 I skating all the time like Noah but I was never as good as he is. Now that I am older it is still fun to get out there but I definitely take less risk and enjoy being behind the camera almost as much as being on the board.

Our time in New York is coming to an end. It has been a wonderful month with friends, museums, shows and shopping. The good thing is that the adventure is not over. On Friday we leave NYC for San Francisco. We are very excited to see our friends there and return to the city we called home for 6 or 7 years.
When I can squeeze a little time out of my busy fun schedule I will try post a few more photos from NYC.
