I post photographs here from time to time for those who are interested in a bit of the story and the locations behind the pictures.

I shoot most of the photographs on on Martha's Vineyard.

Wynton Marsalis at the Tabernacle

1/80 second at f/4.5
I got a dream assignment this week. I interviewed Wynton Marsalis briefly on the phone, then got to meet him and listen to a two hour jam session at the inn where he stays when on Martha's Vineyard. He is a tremendously talented, very humble and likable guy. At the concert Saturday evening with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, I got this wide shot from just off the side of the stage. The Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs is a wonderful venue, and Wynton Marsalis spoke about it in my interview. He loves the feeling of community in this place.  Wynton Marsalis sits in the trumpet section at the back of the orchestra, so despite my best attempts to wrangle a spot where I could get a shot of him playing his horn, I didn't get much. No disappointment, it was a real thrill of a weekend.

The Zipper

8 seconds at f/13
I had a fun night shooting long exposures at the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Society Fair.  With a lot of people walking around, I was careful to avoid the dreaded tripod crash by keeping one hand on the sticks at all times.  This shot reminds me of the Spirograph toy I used to play with as a kid. 

I love the pattern and color in the picture below, but it's not recognizable as a carnival ride.
