Today was Save A Dog’s 10th annual Paws in the Park event at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury.  A beautiful day, a gorgeous location, a fun-filled event for dogs and dog-lovers alike.   Andrew, Max and I spent the day working the Photo Booth to benefit our beloved Save A Dog, the adoption agency that brought us Max!  So many beautiful dogs it was a pleasure to take them all in.  Not nearly enough coming in for their portraits, sadly.  I really wish we could have done more to raise funds for this truly amazing cause.  But I’ve got plans for another year …

The best part of the day?  Max’s reunion with his brother who he was rescued with down in Tennessee!  A very cool thing!

Please come!  Join us!  There will be music and art, delicious things to eat and activities for kiddos!   Not to mention the many other worthwhile exhibitions within walking distance from our location!  This year I have expanded my collection of panoramic photographic collage reflecting on the memory of place.  I have taken images, random and assorted, to create a stitched, imaginary landscape from several of the places I have traveled.  There will be a collection from Ghana, West Africa.  Another from Israel.  Also I have one from Mexico.  The one used in the promotion, seen below and on the cards, is the unique item of the collection in that is a representation of truth and not imagination.  It was taken on the Cape last November.  I look forward to hearing peoples reactions to this particular style of work!  So come!  And bring your family and friends!  For more information on the featured artists in our exhibition please scroll down or click here!

Another year at my favorite preschool for their annual picture day.  The little ones came, some running and jumping, some slinking and hugging to parents knees, some with siblings just crawling or toddling and they all came oh so cute!  I find it endlessly enjoyable to witness these particular portraits unfold each year as personality is so transparent and unique at this early age.  Truly this is a shoot I look forward to each and every year.  Want to see a few more?  Click here!

From the pile of forgotten films I have found some remaining shots from The Boston Flower and Garden Show in April!  I’m afraid that’s the end of this pile … but it just makes me itch to get out and shoot more Black and White, my original photographic love!
