Happy Thanksgiving! Boy do I have a lot to be thankful for. If I actually took the time to type out the list it would just go on and on. The highlights would be my beautiful wife, my loving family, my friends, health, happiness, security, etc…
This year, Thanksgiving dinner was in Boston at our house. Tammy made an awesome meal, and my mom and dad came up from NJ and my sister came up from Brooklyn dinner. Here are some pics from the day.

Yesterday I went on another photowalk with the regular crew that I have been meeting up with for the past year. We met up in Harvard Square in Cambridge and walked from there through Central Square and ended up in Kendall Square. It was hot, hot, hot and to make it worse it was humid. I think I lost several pounds of water weight in sweat, but it was fun anyway. We seem to have got a great group of people who none of whom are overly self-absorbed or full of themselves. Just a bunch of nerds with cameras.
Before meeting up yesterday I stopped at the bank to get some singles; no I was not going to go to a strip-club afterward. I wanted to get some money to give to homeless people and street performers. I feel bad when I take photos of these people and don’t give them something in return. So here are some folks that I “met” yesterday and a little about how we met.
This guy wandered up to the entire group and asked for $1 from each of us. I told him I thought that was a lot of money for doing nothing, and I asked him if I could take his photo for $1. He agreed. While I was shooting this photo he tried to up the price to $5, but I didn’t give in. I gave him a $1 bonus for the nice smile.
