Matt's 365 # 24. At the traffic light with the FedEx guy.

He was juking and singing. Long light; I grabbed my Cybershot, took a hip shot through my window, not wanting to raise the camera to my eye to alert him, and got lucky. Each in his own world. I wondered what he was singing. Matt

Good work with those raindrops, that makes the shot!
Thanks Minnie. Matt

Thanks,Dave. Didn't think of that. I like this profile with the swoopy hair and that was what I wanted to capture. If he had turned toward me, I might have lost that or gotten something even more lucky. Thanks. Matt

#365-25: First Christmas Present for my Bride

Like many others, Maureen and I began our marriage with borrowed furniture, lived on the top floor walk-up in a converted 3-decker in Worcester, MA, and made ends meet by pulling and squeezing. I wanted something special for our first Christmas, and hunted for weeks till I found this Reuge Music Box, 18th Century Drawing Room. There were two, a man and a woman, but I couldn't afford both. The sales woman urged me to take both and said I would regret not having the two and even reduced the price but I still could afford only one. And it didn't even work! The music was supposed to start when you lifted the lady on the platform but the control bar had slipped into the box. It did play, so I bought it. And have, over the 50 years, looked on eBay and other sites for the man. We treasure this and always have it on display.

beautiful - the object and the photograph, but the story - even more so.

I sort of stepped away to finish some projects for work so I missed this and rather than comment on each one I thought I'd simply say that what I'm most impressed with is your range. You inspire me to be better and get back to my projects of course, but what I like most about your work is that you don't seem to have any limits. Thank you all you do to help us see! S-
