Mother’s Day is a day of celebration.
We bring Mom a present, maybe some flowers, maybe some recognition for putting up with us. And just maybe we take a step back and realize how important Mom is to us.
A couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me to photograph her and her Daughter on Mother’s Day. I agreed. I hadn’t seen her Daughter is quite some time and I had never seen them interact.
The day came and we just went for a walk to find a good spot for the session.
There is a bond between Mother and Daughter, unlike any other. They understand and respect each other. I think that there’s a secret code they have as well.
One that I was not included in.
But it sure did make for great images. And that my friend is all I ever want.
For a few years now, I have been photographing the plays at Norwood High School in Norwood MA. It all started when my Daughter was in the plays there and I’ve just kept doing it.
Orange County, it’s got a ring to it. It sounds warm and famous. movie stars …swimming pools
I had the pleasure to work a corporate event in Irvine Californina … Orange County a few weeks ago.
Somehow I expected to see Tom Cruise or Sylvestor Stalone or maybe Julia Roberts driving by. But no, no one drove by, I didn’t do lunch or “have my people call your people”
There were a lot of palm trees though. And that was nice.
My Father was a pastor, I never knew him, he died many months before I was born.
I don’t claim to understand the pain of a disease such as AIDS, or the dedication of those who are trying to cure it, or those who are trying to help make a difference in any way that they can.
The theater … ah the theater! Actors and the theater
I spend a fair amount of time capturing theatrical productions. Yes, that’s me – in the back of the hall with a long lens snapping hundreds of images. Beautiful costumes and lighting, striking poses and expressions make memorable images.
But the images that I capture after the production, when the actors have left the stage often produce some incredible candid shots. Because actors just keep on acting.
Recently I photographed a production by the Prospect Players, a community theater group in Norwood MA. After the show I was speaking with two of the actors, snapping a few more shots and they just couldn’t come out of character.
I think it was more an appreciation of each other’s talent. But for me, it was an opportunity to capture some magic.
