Wide Angle to Fenway



Chose to go to the city (Boston) less encumbered for a number of reasons (ask me about them). Went with Debbie, the 5D and a 16 – 35 mm. Good exercise on a couple levels. One either travels & has the experience or photographs; tough to do both well and enjoy. Still not sure which one I did.

All of us, like lemmings to Fenway …




















(They don’t tear your ticket in half now-a-days: not at $90 a pop they don’t!)




















… like lemmings to Fenway, all to be gobbled up by the ‘Green Monstah’.


Afternoon games bring a different crowd: families and people our age and beyond.

John Lackey threw a few too many home run pitches and the BOSOX bats got shut down and shut out … as the disquieted fans head home. The SOX gotta do better then winning every third game this deep in the season. Who is their quality third starter in a playoff rotation?


Streaming to the CITGO sign and the ‘T’ stop at Kenmore Square.


Boston is one of the great cities!

Wyatt & the ‘Grands’ at 22 Days ‘OotW’

Wyatt has a clamoring demanding public out there (nod, nod, wink, wink) , so  I am hustling to get these processed and posted in a more timely manner.

Young master Wyatt spent some of his weekend with the ‘Grands’; the grandmothers and grandfathers.

Twenty-two days ‘out of the womb’ (‘OotW’) and dinner at Margarita’s the night before.

Content with Grandma Debbie.

Look closely, the same facial expression.

The ‘picket fence’ head support hold!

“Oh! I can’t hear anything now!”


Still can’t hear … ahh, better.

Thanks Gram!

Eating, looking about and then sleeping!

Wyatt in the big hands of Grandpa Steve!   Whose got the camera Mr. Man?

Enter Grandma Judy!

Can’t get enough of that baby!

Two Weeks Out of the Womb!

Just a touch more than two weeks out of the womb.

At his, at the family’s, two week check up young master Wyatt weighed in at a pound more than his birth weight.

Congrats to all; this thanks to a very consistent feeding schedule!

Young master Wyatt dresses up well too.

So far he has ventured out to the lake house and the doctor’s office.



























Wyatt seems to have the Churchill hairline?

Ruddy complexion, rich mother’s milk?










Always the hands and arms are bicycling and moving about, unless he is sleeping or swaddled.









Visually very focused and intent. Loves a bright window.









… and a developing personality starting to show through maybe?

Back In the Day (the polaroid day) ~ Baby Meghan

Neither Meghan nor Sarah are that old but it seems that ‘back in the day’ all we had access to was Polaroid prints. At least that is all we can locate in the way of images from Meghan’s infancy.  They are small images to start. So after scanning and processing and uploading here they are.  Is Wyatt in her face somewhere? Will have to get Bob’s baby images up as well. My sense is that the Churchill hairline and Bob’s chubby cheeks predominate at the moment.
