More fun chasing these gorgeous animals around lately…thank you to all who allow me the privilege!
…it is almost spring in Massachusetts! Temperature has gotten up to 50 this week! And the dogs are loving the beach! So many magnificent beauties here…from Oregon to Washington State to Plum Island…
For the first time in 10 years I had Patriot’s Day off and I decided to take in the Boston Marathon. I didn’t feel like dealing with the crowds in Boston so took a spot at the 8 mile mark where there is lots of space to roam around. The weather was cold and rainy, temps in the low 40’s. But that didn’t affect the spirits of the runners. The Boston Marathon is always an amazing experience. There are so many stories, so much inspiration, so much laughter and tears everywhere you look. Everyone is invited to participate in this incredible annual ritual. This blog post is my vision of this day. I didn’t want it to end. I captured the military who guard the course, the disabled, the wheelchairs, the elite, and the everyday runner. I hope you are inspired! Thanks for viewing!
This is my annual indulgent blog post with my personal favorite photos that I have taken in the past year. I do realize that 100 photos is a bit much, but when I reviewed the year, there were just too many photos that made me happy that I couldn’t leave out. I would like to thank everyone who said “yes” to me and gave me the privilege of shooting these intimate moments. It has been another fabulous year of happiness and health, of personal growth and creativity. I am forever grateful for my sobriety, for without that there is no story. I am blessed to have so many wonderful people on “my team,” especially Debbie Feinman, Milo Muise, Dick Flaherty, Laura Weltner, Patti Haggerty, Cindy McIntire, Pepper, and Helen Hynes. Thank You!
I had the pleasure to meet Melissa Frydlo, vintage base ball player, great athlete, wonderful spirit. She showed at a recent cancer fundraiser in Newbury, Mass called “Jan’s Pitch.” Always smiling, always bringing her best, adding so much fun and energy to the games. Thank you “Moxie” for your contribution on this special day! Born in Amherst, New Hampshire, she now plays in an overhand league as the only woman, where they play by 1886 rules.
