High School a la color!!

Ben and Forrest took over my camera and studio for a few days, Beth, Ms Sally and I got out the LED lights, and I, in photoshop,  added a bit of color.

Lucky me! I had the privilege to photograph this fabulous, colorful, great design of FFF, inc. of the addition to the Rumford Hospital.  

 Everyone found something to contribute to the new addition, which was "sans" furniture except for 2 hospital beds when I arrived.  John Welch, nurses, staff, doctors, pharmacists, PT, and especially Jane Bubar at the hospital, worked with Steve Mosman, Jesse Beck and Tonya West at FFF to follow my instructions for images. 

 The icu really shown with its new monitors, red cart, and patient's room, so the nurses brought everyone down to see it. They just loved it. Especially the stuffed animal that would sing and sing and sing and dance on the patient's bed to everyone's amusement (thank you Jane).  As the camera angle was hidden in a nearby closet, I got to listen to this song for 4 hours and I still can't remember what is sang.  Well, I am over 64! Does that count?  

Enjoy the photos.

I had the great fortune to be asked to take Andy Monroll's portrait and family photos for his campaign running for Mayor of Burlington.  Here is the first one.  Stay tuned for more Andy For Mayor.

"Being Eighty" published by Carolyn L. Bates Publishing

I just published my second book within a year.  It is all about:

Three days of festivities with my uncle's Nearest and Dearest. Elegant dinner at the Harvard Club on Friday night, grand tour of  THE garden lead by my uncle in his white spats, and a five star brunch by Chef Chava kept everyone laughing and eating for days.  My aunt Joanie was behind the scenes, including bringing in several surprise guests.
