Latest project!

I was commissioned by Boston Culinary Group to rephotograph some older pictures of Sugarloaf. They wanted to redecorate the Double Diamond. So I photographed about 15 pictures and restored some that had rips and tears in them. We printed them, and framed them. Marie and I went up Friday morning to put them on the walls. We hung 10 pictures altogether. I am really pleased with how they came out, the frames were gorgeous. It was the first time I ordered from this framing company and I have to say that I am really pleased with them.
Friday evening was the Franklin County Relay for Life. We were a part of the Princess Savannah's Court team. If you have never been, let me give you a little background on this picture. At 10 pm they turn all of the lights off and around the track are about 1000 luminary bags. Each bag has someones name either In Memory of... or In Honor of.... They then proceed to read a list of names, first the list of non-survivors and then the list of survivors. We sat on the track next to Savannah's and listened as they read her name, "In Memory of Savannah Hurley."
I wanted to capture a picture that showed the beauty of all of the luminary bags, this is the one I liked the most.
I did ok most of the evening, the part I had the hardest time with was when the survivors took their lap around the track. Also, there was one woman I noticed who was obviously going through treatment, her head was bald. Seeing her bald head put tears in my eyes.
