I had no idea why this damn tournament was called the Pilot Pen, I just thought it was some clever name. Nope.

More blueberries

with 2 comments

This is from shoot #2 of blueberry picking. There was a mix-up and they ran the previous photos as standalone art instead of paired with the story they were supposed to go with. So I got to go again, no complaints here.

First day of school

with one comment

This reminds me so much of my twin sister and I. It’s not the shot I had in mind when I set out to shoot this morning, but I liked something about it.

House fire

with one comment

I came across a house fire today when I saw the smoke from the freeway. This isn’t an award-winning shot but the family has stayed in my thoughts all afternoon. Luckily this husband and wife, their five kids, and two tenants that live on the second floor got out safely, but their house was a total loss. And it was beautiful. They handled it all with grace and dignity, much more so than I would have. To see more click here.

Blueberry picking

with 5 comments

Yesterday I shot blueberry picking in Cheshire, Conn. The berries were delicious and I made a great dinner with sweet corn, sweet potatoes and green beans. I love these kinds of assignments.
