I had a great time marching with my little league team at The Westport Memorial Day Parade. It is a great way to honor our veterans who gave their lives for our country. The turn out is always huge and the participants have such a great time. With two more boys coming up the ranks I think my duties for marching and honoring will continue for some time. I love a parade.

Twenty years ago I helped my father plant these gorgeous Peonys. The past three years have been really rough on them because of either heat or torrential downpours ( last year, remember?) I really appreciate these wonderful flowers, they look great in any bridal bouquet. The Iris was my mom’s favorite and they bloomed at the same time as the Peony.

The secret is out now. I love Burrying Hill Beach. My kids love playing there, the cookers are always available and the jetty is really cool. Their are fisherman trying to get the catch of the day and then there is me with my camera grabbing pictures of a couple’s engagement photos. You have to check out on top of the hill, there is a big grass field for wiffel ball and soccer. Don’t tell anyone I told you. Enjoy.

Judy and Mark were married this past weekend at The Red Barn in Westport. I have known the Crowley family for many years. I was so happy they had me as their photographer. The day was gorgeous and the bride looked fabulous. Yes, the groom did also. It was a very intimate setting with their closest friends. Congratulations on your wonderful wedding!

Finally! I don’t usually write about equipment but now that I waited three months to get my baby repaired I feel I have to. The shutter on my Leica M8 busted so I had to get it repaired. It was worth the wait. The great thing about this camera is that it is really small so I can get nice candid shots and be very unobtrusive. The quality is awesome. The lenses are unbelievable and I can shoot wide open and blow out the back ground. Here are some test shots with my boys in the backyard. I am so happy to be back with my Leica.
