Just learned that this image of a snowy scene in southwestern Colorado merited in the regional PPA competition in Texas this week. We titled it “Peace in the Valley” but it’s also the final piece (i.e., assures the final merit) necessary for Kevin to be designated a “Master Photographer” by the PPA at next year’s annual conference. It’s taken a long time, but we’ll be definitely be happy to have that one in our pocket!

Went to Boston for the non-profit group Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, to train local photographers in a day-long seminar. Had the chance to see some of the town and take a few pics along the way…

“No Pictures Allowed” in the Old South Meeting House, so we just put the camera on the bench and let it shoot. Why no pictures…?

Had to spend some time trying to figure out these characters in the basement of the Meeting House.

The Central Burying Ground in the Boston Common in the middle of town is one of the spookier places we passed by…

Finally made it to my favorite Italian spot, Lucia in the North End. Gotta love the new Canon 5D Mark II for low-light images like this…

We drove down to Phoenix to attend the Digital Wedding Forum and hang out for a while at Imaging USA, the trade show of the Professional Photographers of America. We saw old friends in Durango and really lucked out on the weather. Only slight problem was that we talked nonstop about the conference on the way back and got so distracted we almost ran out of gas at the New Mexico border!

Ben wasn’t real sure about posing at Four Corners…

That brass plaque was pretty cold…

Betty Kay loved the colors from the car with our polarized sunglasses.

We came down Oak Creek Canyon and through Sedona.

We spent two weeks in Buenos Aires over Thanksgiving. The first week we were with our traditional Thanksgiving friends, Peter and Yvonne Houseknecht, who flew from Miami to meet us in BuenosAires. Peter’s sister Blanche and her husband Jurek also flew down from Connecticut, and we had a great time together exploring the city, “estancias” in the countryside, doing some local birding, and savoring the famous Argentine steak and wine. Blanche was celebrating a birthday and it was our 30th wedding anniversary. Definitely a time for thanks and celebrating! The second week we focused on tangos, milongas, and shopping.

Celebrating Blanche’s birthday at Rosalia, “Bife de Chorizo” and Malbec (although this is obviously champagne…)!

The easy way to sell the Sunday paper in BA…

A busy pedestrian street downtown, and the site of our Thanksgiving dinner: the world-renowned Palacio de la Papa Frita

Evening view of the central obelisk on the Avenida 9 de Julio.

The gauchos put on a show for us at an estancia north of the city.

Pretty much anything you wanted was on the grill (unless you wanted veggies…).

Down at the Boca under a spectacular sky!

We took a walk around the extensive ecological reserve just at the water’s edge, between the skyscrapers and the Rio de la Plata.

Took in a tango show at El Querendí.

And here are our great tango instructors, Paolo Bidart and Sabrina Garcia, who invited us to the “Milonga del Centenario” held in the Viejo Correo. They are great teachers; we still need work on our steps, though…

The last day we took a walk through BA’s beautiful zoo, and checked out the gators!
