Best of 2013

2013_BestOf

Here’s a summary of my life in photos for 2013.  It started out with my usual trip to Cannes and London but this time Janet came which made it a bit more fun.  I got to show her a tiny bit of Europe and London.   She was in awe and I loved it.   In April I took a trip with Megan and Katy to Paris.     I took a trip to Virginia to visit my Aunt Carole and get her stories.   Which was wonderful.   Kauai in July was as beautiful as ever and NYC in October was busy with work.   I did take a few days to visit with the rellies in upstate NY and got some great stories (although I need to do it again…don’t ask).   I did a few portrait sessions and got into studio lighting a little.  I will explore that more in 2014.  I really like it.

So I wanted […]

I was running errands during my lunch break and saw a parking spot right in front so I decided to run in and grab something to go so I could take […]
