Benshoof New Year Gallery

Here are some belated pics from my (Christopher’s) New Year’s Eve 2008 in Lutsen, Minnesota.  It was an amazing collection of people; many strangers who were brought together simply by being a McKeague (my (Christopher’s) mother’s side of the family) , or being a close friend to a McKeague.  One of said friends was Tony Benshoof, childhood friend of Jake McKeague and thus, a family friend.  Tony sports the sumptuous Canon 5D and is, in my estimation, a self-taught photoshop connoisseur.  His photos truly captured the ethos of our trip.  And even if you weren’t there or don’t care about the bunch of strangers in his pics, they have an aesthetic value worth your gander.  Enjoy!  Thanks Tony!

    Nice pics, he’s good. Korbel should use the first one in its marketing. The one with Zach in the top hat makes me imagine Abe Lincoln as a beatnik, and I like what I see.

    Yeah Jake was saying he thought it would be a good Korbel Ad also. Zach is Abe Kerouac!

  3. Great Pics! Looks like a bangin get-together. More often then not my new years celebrations are a bust. Maybe I should change my last name to McKeague . . .
