- Dreams of butterflies flitter through his dreams, accompanied by a few snorting rattles borne upon too many “sugar plums” lulling this grandfather/uncle/Aunt Mabel’s boyfriend from the Shady Oaks Retirement Center that you simply had to invite…and a sharp-eyed photographer shoots the frame more as gag than anything else. And then, drum roll please…it wins in an international wedding photojournalism competition. Damn the butterflies. Full speed ahead to the end of this infernal wedding.
