Tallulah’s Afternoon Photo Session

She’s calm. She’s patient. She’s photogenic.

As photo models go Tallulah is great. She’s calm. She’s patient. She’s photogenic. She’s here for the weekend!

Dog Sitting For Tallulah–Let The Photos Begin!

We love having Tallulah around the house especially since she’s such a wonderful model for my photography!

We’ve got a visitor this weekend. Tracey is off to a wedding her high school reunion and she’s entrusted us with Tallulah. We love having Tallulah around the house especially since she’s such a wonderful model for my photography!

Let the games begin. Tallulah’s on the sofa resting. I hope the clicking doesn’t disturb her.

The First Snow

We seem to go from summer to winter more quickly with each succeeding year.

Winter hasn’t officially begun, but game on–it snowed this morning. This wasn’t your Currier and Ives snowfall. It was as if Mother Nature couldn’t make up her mind and infused the snow with ice.

There wasn’t much of it. I’ve posted two photos with this entry because the snow is so well hidden.

This was one nasty morning, but the first of many.

Connecticut Fall Foliage Photos

On our way home from Dr. Mel’s birthday party Helaine suggested I stop for a few foliage shots. It’s tough to go wrong with those!

Saturday was a beautiful October day in Connecticut. If the fall colors haven’t peaked we’re getting awfully close.

On our way home from Dr. Mel’s birthday party Helaine suggested I stop for a few foliage shots. It’s tough to go wrong with those!

We got off I-91 and cut across to the ballfields at Wilbur Cross High School to shoot East Rock then on to Lake Whitney. I took a walk around my neighborhood to get a few more.

Dr. Mel: Birthday Boy – Party Pictures

Though Dr. Mel often claims we’re in prediction and not production it’s tough to believe he didn’t have some hand in this beautiful day.

Today’s Dr. Mel’s 65th birthday. There was an even more important occasion for the party he and his wife Arlene threw. It’s 165 months since Mel was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

The disease develops in 1–4 per 100,000 people per year. It is more common in men, and is twice as common in blacks as it is in whites. With conventional treatment, the prognosis is 3–4 years, which may be extended to 5–7 years with advanced treatments – Wikipedia

If there’s a single reason Mel’s still alive it’s because of the relentless advocacy he and Arlene have shown. The Goldstein’s have made sure his treatment has been thorough. There is no slacking off with a very educated patient.

The party was a great celebration held in Mel and Arlene’s beautiful house on-the-water in East Haven and attended by many of my co-workers and friends.

Though Dr. Mel often claims we’re in prediction and not production it’s tough to believe he didn’t have some hand in this beautiful day.

Fall Photos Come Easy

I’m sure there’s some advantage of using my Canon DSLR but today I could see none.

This time of year is made for picture taking. That’s why about 45 seconds after I left my driveway I stopped to take this photo. It’s a small mill pond surrounded by old trees. If I’ve taken one shot I’ve taken a thousand shots from this vantage at the side of the road.

This photo was taken by my iPhone camera. I’m sure there’s some advantage of using my Canon DSLR but today I could see none.
