From the sideline

I just thought I'd share a few gems I captured while shooting a Fairfield University vs Canisius College game at The Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport.

National Anthem

Or perhaps they played against Yellow Mustard U.

And don't get me started on cheerleaders.

A little down time for the mascot. Go Stags!

Obi-Wan Kenecktie

The force is still going least it was at a fencing tournament I photographed today. Hot dang!

Skate Rat

A feature from today that I thought was interesting.

Don't you want some Lolly to love?

A friend of mine is in a bit of a predicament. She has a lovely poodle named Lolly who she desperately needs to find a new home for because she recently had her second baby and the two little ones are just too much to handle, leaving Lolly short on the love, attention and the time that she deserves. If ANY of you are interested in owning this sweet, loving and adorable poodle, PLEASE let me know. She's fairly young I think (maybe two) and loves to play and take walks. YAY LOLLY!!!

Leapin' Lizards

I was at the CT Audubon Society in Fairfield today and photographed kids interacting with the resident animals. This little girl was mesmerized by the Bearded Dragon---she wouldn't budge from the side of his tank. I really felt that they were having a moment of connection--like when Harry Potter spoke Parseltongue to the snake at the zoo.

Sign Crimes

"Tender & Care"? Huh?

Y'all c'mon down to PP Boys!

Indiana Jones works out

So I had yet another senior citizen assignment yesterday. Chair exercise at the Black Rock Senior Center. Don't get me wrong---I love them all but as per usual, the freak magnetry was working overtime and this guy approached me, saying that people are practically knocking his door down because he looks so much like Indiana Jones. It was hilarious. And he went on to say that if it's not Indiana Jones, people mistake him for Leonard Nimoy. Go figure.

Ye Yacht Yard

I've always loved this sign at Ye Yacht Yard in Southport, CT. It has a crusty old feel to it, just like some of the salty fisherman that frequent the place.

Bouncing Baby Bravo

One of my oldest friends David Bravo, also a photographer, had asked me a while back if I'd like to shoot the birth of his first baby. I didn't think much of it and assumed it would happen in the middle of the night or while I was working but alas, good ol' Molly just happened to go into labor on my day off. In the almost 9 hours I was at the hospital with them, I experienced many feelings.......amazement, awe, humility, shock (oh, the blood!) and huge waves of emotion (I was bawling like a baby). I feel blessed to have been included in the event and I thank David and Molly for letting me be a part of such an intimate experience. Molly is undoubtedly my new superhero. And cheers to baby Isaiah!

Yes kids, I finally leaped into the 90's and started a blog. I hope you enjoy it, as it will include current work and many a rant no doubt. And to christen the site, a classic shot of yours truly, circa '76. Sweet!
