End of the road

So the New England Patriots lost on a nail biter in the Superbowl.  Well they still had a good season and I was lucky enough to cover almost all of their home games again.  Saw some great games and some well.....iffy games.  I will put together an end of the season gallery in the next few days to showcase some of my favorites but in the meantime enjoy this photo.  It's not new for anyone that is friends with me on facebook but I never posted it here so here you go.

Back in the day

I am in the process of adding some new content to my website to showcase my portraiture and more commercial style work.  So I have been digging through my archive of photos.  My lovely wife Christine, who is also a photographer offered to help, so we tackled the digital mountain of images together.  It was refreshing to have another person look through photos that I have stared at for hours and hours.  She came at them with a new fresh eye which gave me a fresh appreciation to photos that I had grown tired of looking at.

One of the photos is posted below.  I remember the assignment, I was asked to photograph a small tight knit neighborhood located in Brookline Village.  It was effectively a group photo of some of the neighbors.  But I was just starting out as a photographer and always wanted to go above and beyond on an assignment (still do!).  I took a few photos of the handful of neighbors that had gathered for the story and then went and hung out on the quiet street with them for a little while.  I attempted a series of portraits against one of the remaining brick row type homes that lined the street.  First up was a woman who was walking home from grocery shopping.  She was a little shy in front of the camera but I think it worked.

*****UPDATE**** There was a cat too!

Just found another photo from the same take.  Sorry there is no name but that was scrubbed when I re-saved the photos years ago.
