Vintage Base Ball Portraits, with Mudville, Colorado, and Dirigo of Maine

Now THIS was fun!  Hanging out with the Vintage Base Ball teams for a weekend, featuring Sunday games on beautiful Georges Island in Boston Harbor.  Fabulous backdrops, gorgeous weather, and genuine great guys playing baseball for the love of the game.   These photos feature three teams, Mudville from Holliston, Mass, Colorado All-Stars, and Dirigo from Maine.

The Egg Rock Swim, Lynn, Mass, 1985

Here is an image of me finishing the Egg Rock Swim in 1985.  I finished in fourth place out of 10 swimmers with a time of just under 3 hours.  We were allowed to wear a neoprene vest only, no wetsuits allowed back in those days!  This was a beautiful day!   In my support boat was Rocco Coviello and his dad.   Historically, back in the early 1900’s the Egg Rock Swim was a 2.5 mile swim where a boat brought the swimmers out to the rock and they swam back.   But my good friend Tom Carmody had to best that!   He decided that we should start at the Nahant bath house on Nahant Beach and swim around the rock and back, making it about 5.5 miles as the crow flies.  But, I don’t swim as the crow flies!   I likely swam 6 miles that day.  Tomorrow, August 24, 2014 I will swim the 8 mile stretch of Plum Island Beach, from south to north.   I will have a lot of time to meditate on just how much my life has changed since 1985…

We spent the last 3 days in Ptown, the weather was spectacular and the place was starting to get that summer buzz.  And, lots of gorgeous dogs everywhere.  We took our favorite hike from Snail Road across the dunes to the dune shacks and the ocean.  Here I include my weekly indulgent dog blog including 81 photos of some of the Ptown dogs that we met along our travels…

Nikola Stajic, Berklee College of Music

Here are several quick edits of Nikola.  This young man was born to play guitar.  I had the opportunity to do a quick shoot with him around Boston yesterday afternoon.  Immensely talented, poised, and humble…a wonderful combination!   I edited these as fast as I could late this evening so that he could see them while on a 16 hour travel day tonight as he makes his way back home to Serbia for the summer.  Thanks for the memories Nikola!   Safe travels!

The Mudville Vintage Base Ball Team, Holliston, Mass

I spent an afternoon hanging with the Mudville Vintage Base Ball Team last Sunday.  This is how baseball should be!  Beautiful weather, fabulous athletes, great sportsmanship.  And the best thing is that these gentlemen simply love baseball and genuinely enjoy each other’s company.  Here I present 64 photos from the game against The Dirigo Vintage team from Rockland/Bath, Maine.  Of course, the day ended with some great beverages!
