Let me tell you that some days it’s tough to come up with a theme. That’s why I love it when people suggest them to me. Today no one sent me any ideas so I had to come up with one all by myself. I have no idea why I decided to go with plaid but it is what it is. I hope you enjoy the photographs. Be a pal though and send some suggestions my way, OK?
This is the third set dedicated to a single person but there will be more! The first was my darling wife Wendy, next came my pal Karyn and now it’s Scott Damgaard’s turn. I met Scott on March 12, 2008 – coming up on four years ago if you stretch it. He plays guitar, sings and hosts Boneoke at the Bone in Framingham. He plays all over Boston and is a great guy and a lot of fun.
I’m very lucky. Years ago I got connected with MIT by chance and that has led to a number of cool opportunities for me to take photographs of some very smart and interesting people. The Communication Forum, Media in Transition and most recently the Emerging Technology conference are all events that my camera has taken me too. Here are some shots of speakers I’ve taken over the years.
First, I feel terrible that I didn’t post yesterday. It’s the first time since I started that I haven’t posted. Boo me. But . . . today is a new day!
One thing I’ve noticed as I’ve looked at the thousands of face photos is the number of people who tilt their heads in photographs. I can’t figure it out. Does anyone have any ideas? If you do let me know. I’m stumped.
It’s been long enough since the season ended to create a little Sox content. There is perhaps no more ubiquitous symbol of New England than the Red Sox cap. The dropped “r” is a close second but come on, the blue hat with the red “B” is like a beacon. Here are a dozen photographs of fans from over the years. I haven’t limited myself to the classic cap but have a variety here that show the range of Red Sox fandom.
Summer is a memory here in New England. Sure, we’ve had a few warm – even hot – days recently; but we’ve also had frost on the windows. To keep that summer feeling alive for a little longer I decided to pull some shots of people wearing their sunglasses. They have it made in the shade and I hope you do too.
