So I’m hoping to see some of my favorite Irish friends this weekend if (ughhhh) it doesn’t snow. I haven’t seen too many people since the holidays for lots of reasons. Living in the Northeast one of those reasons would be snow… the new four letter word.
Thinking of bringing my camera. Yes I know I should always have it with me, and I usually do. Sometimes having my camera around friends makes them uneasy I think. Like I’m going to start snapping like the paparazzi lol.
Are there people I could just take shots of all day without pause? Absolutely. My daughter’s have been my muse since birth, and for the most part they entertain my obsession with them. I love to photograph dancers as my friends & many Irish dancers know. Many of the dancers now know me by sight. There is something about a person who is blessed with the ability to dance. The love of the dance comes through the lens in a magnificent fashion even when they aren’t performing.
I took the photograph above a year & a half ago. I’ve known Kerri for many years, & I just love this girl! The shot looks posed, but it isn’t. She was sitting next to me on the ground. When I looked down I saw her. As I grabbed my camera & looked down she looked up. With any picture that you love you know in that fraction of a second that it takes to catch the image you have what you wanted to capture. I hope to see Kerri this weekend even if I don’t take her picture (but I know I probably will).
So in awe of this cast. I have so many images to edit from this event & the week. My schedule is so messed up though. I caught a nasty fever virus right after the concert & we ended up leaving Boston early. Add in getting bursitis in my hip from sleeping with a 103 degree fever on 2 seats with a metal bar between them on the Amtrak train back home while on chemo really messed me up. I guess I have some issues!
In any event this was the second time I was able to spend time with Cherish the Ladies. Both times were fantastic for different reasons. The 1st time my oldest daughter was invited to dance with the cast at a concert in Philadelphia. The photo above is, of course, from the Worlds in Boston. Both times the show was fantastic.
