Little Drummer Boy

Leif rocking it out.

This is Leif.  I met his mom about 12 years ago when we were both in college to be photographers/art teachers.  We were great friends back then and photo lab assistants which meant we had keys to the darkroom so we would work on  assignments until very late at night, sometimes all night.  We printed, collaborated, procrastinated and just had a lot of fun.  After graduating, she moved to Northern Michigan and I moved to Philadelphia.  We lost touch for many years but as luck would have it we reconnected shortly before I moved to Northern Michigan.  Now she has a beautiful family and I was very pleased to photograph her pride and joy today.  Leif is sweet, smart, funny and has his Mama's crazy personality.  Both mom and dad are very talented musicians and play as a duo called The Hand Me Downs.  So of course he inherited their passion for music, but his is for dancing, singing and playing the drums.  He has his own drum set but would rather play it indoors instead of outside.  Today he just wanted to run around and throw rocks so dad played the drums instead.

Brittany and Josh

As I edit these photos, I am reminded why I do this.  Congrats to Brittany and Josh, two people who are obviously meant to be together.

This is Venus passing in front of the sun today.  I wasn't planning on shooting it, but I found out that I could look at it through x-ray film.  I just happened to have my old MRI films lying around so I gave it a shot and this is what I got.  The little dot is Venus.

Another year of the Hell's Half Mile Film and Music Festival in Bay City, Michigan has come and passed.  It all goes by too quickly.

 Morning commute

day three

I shot in my back yard because I didn't leave the house before noon so this was my favorite.
