Well, this is one of those "must sees". Yesterday Liz and I went on the tour of Philip Johnson's Glass House in New Canaan, Ct. The Glass House was the house that Johnson built and lived in from 1949 until his death in 2005. Originally on five beautiful acres, the property grew to 47 acres with fourteen amazing Philip Johnson structures, all of which he bequeathed to the National Trust for Historic Preservation and much of which is now open to the public on this great tour. Be prepared, however, since the tour is seasonal and only in its second year, we reserved our tour date a year ago, and you'll probably have to do the same. Well worth the wait. For my many photographer friends, please note that you can only take photographs on the two hour tour, not the ninety minute tour that we went on, thus my borrowing these terrific images from photographer Eirik Johnson which appeared on their postcards.

I had the wonderful experience on Saturday of photographing The Connecticut Challenge
bike ride. Over 400 riders, young and old, each choosing their course from 25-100 miles, raising money and awareness in honor of cancer survivors.
And always fun to see friends Alan and Patti (Alan's the tall one in tights and helmet) and Erin and George (I photographed their wedding), Erin putting in her 50 mile ride. Congrats Alan and Erin both.

Congratulations to Heather and David. Neither the heat nor the traffic
stopped this from being a most incredible wedding. And thanks to
Cathy at the beautiful Tappan Hill for taking such wonderful care of us
and for make sure that everything went so smoothly.
Looking forward to creating a memorable album for both of you.
Enjoy their slide show!

Congratulations Ella and Rich, What a wonderful wedding day. Rain couldn't stop us. The very cool location of the Boat House in Central Park, incredible couple that the two of you are, and your warm and loving families. Nothing could have been more fabulous.
Eager and excited for Heather and David's upcoming wedding, we recently spent a little time taking these photos by the water in their adopted hometown of Larchmont, NY. A little warm up for the real thing, just a week away!

So much catching up to do with my blog entries. It's been a wild couple of weeks, filled with beautiful weddings, but while I'm finishing up the editing of last weekend's nuptials, I came across this picture that I shot last year of actor James (Jim) Naughton for a Westport Magazine cover. Not actually the photo they used but thought this was a particularly fun one. Jim had found this little fawn with a broken leg in his backyard and brought it to Wildlife in Crisis, an incredible nonprofit dedicated to rehabilitating injured and abandoned animals (from birds to racoons, etc), which previously unknown to me, happens to be just up the road from where we live in Weston. Anyone interested in donating or otherwise getting involved can go their website or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
