Wedding July 23: Elise and Dave

On July 23, I was a second shooter for Mike Nyman. Elise and Dave had their ceremony in Templeton, and the reception at the Colonial Hotel in Gardner.

The first wedding I photographed TEN years ago was for Dave's bother, Peter. Wow! Basically, I have this family to thank for my career. They had to really talk me into shooting that first one.

Baby Photos: Rafe!

Rafe got to explore Institute Park today...he was fascinated by the grass. :)

This kid has an amazing...presence. There's no other word for it. Some of the looks he would give me, he's quite a character!

His mom calls him her chunky monkey. The boy is a strapping 6 month old. :)

India Holga Photos: Spring 2011

The trip to India this winter/spring was 3 months long. I brought 2 Holga cameras and about 125 rolls of film. It is NOT easy to bring film thru airports, especially this much.

The days in India were 100 good for storing film.

I had to lug it all BACK with me.

At the end of the trip, I decided "That's it. No more Holgas to India". I processed my exposed film (I only shot about 7 or 8 rolls) and when they came back at the end of April, I completely ignored them.

I was feeling a little resentful that they were (indirectly) the cause of so much airport strife, took up valuable space in my luggage, and hadn't even really been used. What a waste of time, I thought.

And so it took me until just the other day to scan the negatives in.

And now I am in love again.

And I want to keep shooting holgas.
