A good friend of mine lives in Providence, Rhode Island and invited me to join her for an evening of free swing dancing to a live band at Waterfire.  Well how could I resist such a fun idea?

There was much fun and dancing up a storm.


There was also a procession of torches...

and of course, fire along and on the river (hence the event's name)

All in all I had such a lovely evening with fun and good friends.  It reminded me that I really need to go out dancing more often.  And that there are fun affordable things to do all around New England this time of year.  I hope to take part in more of them.

self portraits past

It has been a while since I've done much photography.  But for a few years I was taking a self portrait every day as part of the 365 Days project on Flickr.  I am still very happy about what I learned doing that (about photography, but also about body image and about myself in general).

Today I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite self portraits was chosen to be featured on the Flickr blog.

Here is the photo on its own:

The left half is a photo my father took of me when I was around 8 years old.  I get any hint of photography talent I might actually have from him so it seems only appropriate that this image should get the most attention of pretty much any one that I have taken.

Happy Easter!

Sorry for the radio silence the last few months.  Getting settled into my new job and setting up shop there has been more time consuming than expected.  My online presence has suffered greatly, but here are some pretty photos of the early blooming cheery tree that my hubby planted for me last year.  Happy Spring everyone!
