The course was incredible – I had my own cart. and I was driving like a mad man!
My job, find the gophers … I mean golfers and take team photos. I can do that.
I just can’t show you any of them.
And then there was the food … it was so good. Just look at this – cooked on the “patio” with this view.
One day I too will have a bed room window that looks out over this type of view … yea right!
Ok, that’s my official first paragraph. But to be candid, it was a blast to be there and volunteer to photograph the event. It was also sad and happy and “eye-opening”.
The event was held on the tiny wiffle ball field behind the hospital which is named after Boston Red Sox player Tim Wakfield .
It was sad to see the children and adults in wheelchairs, happy to see all the corporate sponsers and their teams hitting that whiffle ball with a yellow plastic bat. Eye-opening to hear Travis Roy during his opening remarks say “I would like to be on the field with you, maybe one day I will”.
(footnote – Travis was injured during the first 11 seconds of his college ice hockey career) \
OH! and it was delicious. The food – hamburgers, hotdogs, etc was … Excellent!
Here’s a video look at the day.
I drove into town, but I still took the subway up from where I parked my car to Kenmore square where we were going to meet.
This huge sign greets you in Kenmore Square as you come out of the subway – it was so colorful that I had to take a shot.
I think what I like most about photographing couples that recently got engaged is learning about their lives together.
Mike is a postal carrier, he told me that he walks 10 miles a day. As we walked the streets of Boston, if Mike got too far ahead Kelly would just say “slow down mail man …” and we’d all just laugh.
We walked from Fenway Park down though the Public Gardens and on to the Charles River .
It was great day with this incredible couple.
