I think every year I have photographed La Vuelta Puerto Rico it has rained at the start of the event.

Usually it’s a light rain and maybe last five to ten minutes. Not this year. Tropical downpour from the start!

This is when you find out that “all weather” light jacket you purchased is not really rain proof and how much water can your gear take.

Turns out cameras will absorb a lot of water, perhaps have a few quirks with rain and humidity, yet keep on shooting.

Good thing along the way the rest stops had automatic hot air dryers in the bathrooms.

Once again it was a privilege to work with the Vietnamese Community and the Prajna Upadaesa Foundation

to photograph His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama while he spoke at the Wang Theatre in Boston.

And once again I worked with a great crew consisting of Kyle Cassidy, Tina Manley, Emanuel Lowi, Phong Doan and Suzan Doan.

Special thanks to the US State Department and His Holiness’ own security team.

The Horah –

“To start the dance, everybody forms a circle, holding hands, and steps forward toward the right with the left foot, then follows with the right foot.

The left foot is then brought back, followed by the right foot. This is done while holding hands and circling together in a fast and cheerful motion to the right. ” (wikipedia)

Always a fun part of Jewish weddings. It’s fast, it’s crazy and everyone is having a great time.

As a photographer, this dance keeps you on your toes for sure, even if you are tall!

Thanks to Jessica Del Vecchio Photography for having me help out at the wedding.

Marie and Ken hosted an amazing wedding at Race & Religious in New Orleans.

As I’m just a photographer telling stories with images, the NY Times article on this wedding is much better with words than I am.

Thanks to Marie & Ken for allowing me to photograph their special day

and thanks to Jessica Del Vecchio for helping me with the photography.

“Every drummer that had a name, had a name because of his individual playing.

He didn’t sound like anybody else, So everybody that I ever listened to, in some form, influenced my taste.”

– Buddy Rich

Quote fits great with photography as well.
