I can't wait to meet Maddie the Coonhound when she is in Boston this week!
I usually don't update my blog with my Jewish Boston event photos. Honestly, I'm not sure why! (Probably because I'm in such a hurry to get the posted for Jewish Boston that I forget to reflect on them here). A week ago, right before Boston got scary, I joined a dozen toddlers for some sing-a-long fun. And... it was really fun. Fun enough that if you have an under 5 year old in the general Boston area and want to go have some sing-a-long fun on a Sunday, I'm going to ask that you bring me with you.
This past weekend I joined Adam and his family to celebrate his becoming a Bar Mitzvah.
Adam's family was warm and welcoming, and I found myself laughing and clicking the shutter along with the beat of the music during the party. It was fun watching the entire family relax and get into the spirit of celebration; I had no idea when I asked Adam if his family could be silly just what was in store. Here is a small preview of some of the fun that was had as Adam reached this amazing milestone.
Needing a break from this week, we headed to Holyoke to photograph an abandoned theatre. The Victory Theatre was built in the 1920s; the theatre is an amazing relic of the grand years of art deco architecture. The theatre closed its doors in the late 70's.
Today is really scary. But what is awesome is when people like Mikey Neumann, an author and the creative director for a video game company located nowhere near Boston, stand in solidarity.
Mikey and his team at Gearbox Software are drawing things for folks in Boston-- and I requested the best thing I could think of: Duncan the Cat fighting evil.
(Okay, it really doesn't look like him, but the sentiment- and the stripes!- is there).
