Nope. Not on Vacation.

For those of you who follow my blog, you may have thought I had taken a road trip or was just taking a break to enjoy this New England spring weather. Well, if you live here, you are probably not buying the latter. This spring is not very friendly at the moment. I am still hopeful. But in actuality, I have been busy shooting and waiting for much of it to get published so that I can show off my work. In the mean time I can show you some hints of what will be coming out in print in the next couple of weeks, as well as some shots that I took for the Cultural Organization of Lowell at the city's 175th Anniversary kickoff event.

The Lowell, Massachusetts 175th Anniversary kickoff event consisted of a short parade down Merrimack Street, followed by speeches on the steps of City Hall and a cake cutting reception inside City Hall. The weather was great that day. Unfortunately, we haven't seen such good weather since.

I shot several venues and people for about a half dozen magazine articles that are in the queue to be published. Here is a taste, but there are restaurants, condos, personalities and more. Stay tuned!

Tonight I am also wrapping up my Photographing People course. Here's my crew!

And after much deliberation and procrastination, as well as some other "ations", Amy and I finally painted the outside of my studio and re-hung some work.
