I'm in

Guess who the newest member (as of a few days ago) of the WPJA is?? That's right, it's me. I recently submitted my application for membership to the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) and after reviewing my website and image portfolio, they have accepted me into the fold. The most exciting part of it for me is that I get to put my images up against other top photographers in their quaterly contests. If I win, you'll hear about it here first!

U2 Comes to Town

The Boston area has been buzzing the last few weeks with the news that U2 was planning a visit and concert in a small, intimate venue. But the location was top secret. The Paradise? House of Blues? Nope, in the end it was Somerville Theatre right here in my back yard - Davis Square. And folks were out and about hoping to catch a glimpse of Bono, The Edge, and company. I saw no rock stars, mostly cops and news trucks, but you could tell something big was upon us.

The local businesses were feeling the vibe:

Davis Square Art

Last spring I was lucky enough to have this Davis Square street scene chosen to be part of a permanent installation on display down on the platform in the Davis Square T station. They chose my image along with the work of several other local artists to create a more vibrant feel within the station. Here is an article describing the project and unveiling ceremony. If you ever find yourself in Davis and waiting for a train take a look around, check out the art, and give some love to my photo.

So Much Orange!

We made our annual pilgrimmage up to the "Harvard of Central New York", aka Syracuse, a few weeks back to take in the Georgetown game along with about 32,000 of our closest orange-clad friends. My uncle came through with his usual great seats and we were first row, directly behind the 'Cuse bench and right in the middle of all the excitement. The Orange squeaked out a 98-94 win in OT and Judy and I were on the "Kiss Cam" (basically we had to kiss in front of everyone on the Jumbotron) and we were even seen be various folks on national TV. Quite the day.

Judy's handiwork - I've taught her well in the rules of composition:
