I shoot a lot, but I take surprisingly few personal photos.  Perhaps it's because the idea of schlepping around a much loved (but rather heavy) camera, or just that I shoot so much for work that a little break is in order.  Regardless, I was recently inspired by Karleen (and ultimately Susannah) about sharing one image every day for the rest of the month of August.  

So here's to a little more randomness...

I love twilight, there's something very peaceful and mysterious about it.  Maybe it's just the idea of kicking back and drinking a cup of hot chocolate and watching the last vestiges of light leave the horizon.  And of course it never hurts to have a dramatic mountain landscape and fluffy pinkish-purple clouds.

Karleen:

Gorgeous twilight image! Yay!! I'll be checking here regularly for your August Break posts and personal work!! And you're totally right, it was the glittery logo that dazzled me and lured me into joining (again, didn't realize that til you brought it to my attention, just like that FB thing ha!).

The theme of the day was love - from their engagement photos at the JFK park in Philadelphia to the candy filled LOVE letters at their reception.  But it was more than just about two people, but rather two families coming together.  It was a very joyous occasion that I was privileged to witness.

The basketball was probably one of the stranger things I've seen in a bridal prep room, but I love that it represents all of the girls.

The newly minted ringbearer also took over the role of laying out petals for the bride - with a little help, of course.

Happy Friday!  This is my second set of Boston photos from this past spring, you can see the first set here.

Besides the requisite Freedom trail, here are a few other personal highlights:


*  Breakfast at Mike & Patty's 

 It's located in a cute little neighborhood with some really tasty twists on breakfast classics.  I kid you not, it's a tiny joint (seats maybe eight people total).  Savvy locals call ahead but this little tourist cooled her heels for a solid twenty minutes before chowing down on their North South Classic.


*  Boston Harbor Islands

We were able to see firsthand the reclamation project on Spectacle Island, which has essentially seen everything from hotels to a horse processing plant to a trash dump.  Now it's a lovely little recreational area very similar to the Berkeley marina.  We also stopped by Georges Island, well known for the Lady in Black (a ghost of a Confederate prisoner's wife).  An impromptu tour by a friendly ranger let us play with the large canons around and temporarily get lost groping around one of the pitch black tunnels that run throughout Fort Warren (mind you this was right after we heard the ghost story).

*  Boston Pops concert

This was definitely a pleasant surprise.  How often can you sit at a concert hall like Symphony Hall listening to music while drinking and eating?  Not to mention during a pops concert you're encouraged to make friends with your neighbors (I heard quite a few FB connections) and, for better or worse, to also sing along.

*  Boston Public Gardens

After reading The Trumpet of the Swan as a child it's hard not to fall a little in love with the idyllic Boston Public Gardens.  It's a perfect place to sit and enjoy the sun.  I wouldn't recommend dangling your feet in the water, however.

Beautiful pics of Boston, Pheebs! You certainly continue to capture more and more of what may seem like nothing to the naked eye. G'job! By the way, love the picture of the old man in the park!

It's hard imagining a cuter (and sometimes funnier) couple than these two, so it was a pleasure to be able to capture their wedding day.

Gifts, smiles, and occasional physical feats (in this case a few one handed push-ups) were necessary to gain entry into the house for the tea ceremony.

Apparently Huy has a distinct dancing style, which allowed Liz to identify him despite the Gumby suit. :)

It was a lovely, fun-filled night full of laughter, cheers, and one awesome surprise flashmob dance.  Congratulations Huy & Liz!
