Meet Devy

He was holding up really well, considering that he had cut his nap short. And even thought it was not cold, the air was crisp, and all the adults tried really hard to make him laugh ... tell you what: That'll make a little guy tried.

Quiz: Two of these picture were not taken by me, but by Nele ... can you find them?

La Paloma ohe

Wikipedia says: “"La Paloma" is a popular song, having been produced and reinterpreted in diverse cultures, settings, arrangements, and recordings over the last 140 years.”
Having grown up near Hamburg, Germany, with it huge port and seafaring history La Paloma is a sea shanty that I have been humming ever since I was a kid.

It has been stuck in my head for two day now due to a recent sailing trip. I have to say there are worse songs that can get stuck in your head.

forest nymph

There is a forest nymph
A tannic, secret child
Crowned in white and dancing
Can dance the trees a smile.

Lukas - You Rock!

Lukas you rock!

I really enjoyed the day at the beach with you, and I am absolutely thrilled that I did not use a regular camera to capture the magic of the day, but instead grabbed 'my old toy camera' that shoots medium format film. Yes, FILM!

Today my fingers are smelly of good old fashion chemicals, and I am in love with the mementos they gave me.

Viva Barcelona - Viva Vicky & Ed

We're back from Barcelona.
Actually, we have been back for a while, but I am still trying to catch up with all the photos I brought back.

Most importantly with the pictures of Vicky & Edward's Wedding in the beautiful mountain setting in Montseny near Barcelona.

Congratulation again.

... and while you two enjoy being married, I will work frantically on your wedding album, which will be the best I ever made.

The place is pure magic.
I can never leave under 3 hours.
And the moment I walk out the door, I am ready for the next visit.

Two Birthsdays are better than One

Happy Birthday J.R. !
Happy Birthday Grandma !

Last weekend J.R. celebrated his second birthday and Mommy threw a surprise party for Grandma into the mix. The weather could not have been better, and a big family definitely helps with the action and fun of the event. (Even if it doesn't make Mommy's work easier, it was well worth the effort.)

As if it wasn't unforgettable anyway, there are over 200 pictures of happy kids of all ages playing, unwrapping presents and enjoying a summer day in April spent with the family.

I hope to see you all again next year ...

So I don't know nothing about football

Last night I learned that ...
  • Linebackers are big and slow - not very tall though
  • Running Backs are lightning fast
  • Deep down inside they all are kinda like the basketball people I grew up with. They have the same team-fun-sport spirit that you can find in any athlete who is serious about their sport, but doesn't forget to have fun.
  • They seem to be really nice, fun, down to earth, patient, team people who enjoy a nice game of hoops.
OK, so they are in incredible physical shape and they do not make their money playing Basketball (I have seen better) - but that was the beauty of it.

The game last night was a fund raiser basketball game for the Westwood High School between the High School Booster All Stars and the NE Patriots.
They were not seriously playing - just a relaxed fun game.
Here are the pix:

The Pats players who attended were:
I am really glad I went to see this event. Thanks Adrienne for thnking of me, and for letting me borrow your D200.

Jazz @ Lou’s opening reception

I am not the kind of photographer who carries her camera everywhere she goes and photographs anything, all the time. But I happened to have my camera with me when I went to Lou Jones’ opening reception of his latest show REDUX ii in the Gallery at the Piano Factory in South Boston last weekend.
And when I heard Jazz being played and I saw the Bass and the Saxophone ... I just couldn’t help it.

Why is it that I am so drawn to musical instruments?

Thanks Lou for this wonderful opportunity to meet interesting people, great music and for sharing your wonderful photographs with us.

PS: Arnold Cheatham - the Saxophone player - is an accomplished photographer himself.

Enrique Peñalosa At Bikes not Bombs

Oops, I have some catching up to do:
Bikes not Bombs had approached me to ask if I could cover another event for them, and I was delighted as their events are always interesting and fun (and loaded with good Karma)
Enrique Peñalosa is a former Mayor of Bogota, Columbia, an accomplished public official, economist and administrator. While mayor, Peñalosa was responsible for numerous radical improvements to the city of Bogota and its citizens. He promoted a city model giving priority to children and public spaces and restricting private car use, building hundreds of kilometers of sidewalks, bicycle paths, pedestrian streets, greenways, and parks.

During his four day visit to Boston early February '09, he participated in several events, one of which was the afternoon with Bikes not Bombs. He saw the BNB headquarter, went on a tour thru the Southwest Corridor Park in JP and returned to BNB HQ for his inspiring presentation.
I am thrilled I got the chance to cover the event, and I am looking forward to the next …

"Public space is for living, doing business, kissing, and playing. Its value can't be measured with economics or mathematics; it must be felt with the soul."

To see more photos of Enrique's visit at BNB check out the album below.
