Day #12 Part 2, Fri. 7/13

I met my friend Tyla and her family for lunch at Quincy Market. So good to see them in Boston although the heat and humidity were a deterrent for doing much of anything for the locals never mind  with people who are used to 75° and sunny with no humidity in L.A.!  I got a grilled lamb-kabob sandwich and another bottled water to combat dehydration in the 90° heat!  No photos of the food as we stood/sat outside and the sandwich was kind of drippy/messy, but delicious!  But I do have photos of us. :-)

We spent about an hour together and after dehydrating I headed to the Boston Common and Public Gardens to take more photos. It actually turned into a three hour afternoon of photography for me. It became a little overcast so although it was hot and humid at least there was no hot sun beating down on me.  This also gave way for some great shadowless photos! 

I photographed a swan and had a photo in my head that I wanted. You'll see my creation a little later. 

 I found a few more musicians for my Hearts & Hands Project and one guy was perfect!  I got his hands playing violin and he had a heart around his neck! Talk about being in the right place at the right time. 

My favorite!

I went by the Old State House and  the man playing the French Hurdy Gurdy was still there. I took a few more photos with my 55-25mm lens and continued back to the waterfront where I photographed the carousel and some more spots where I had been earlier.

And then my swans . . .  I got the photo just as I had envisioned it!  One single swan that I turned into a beautiful heart!

I left the waterfront and decided to eat an early dinner before heading back to NH on the train so I went to McCormick & Schmick's and sat outside in the shade. Had Shrimp Scampi and being a Shrimp Scampi connoisseur I must say it was some of the BEST I've had!

Got back to North Station and went into the Pro Shop. Jokingly I asked where the ray Allen section was and there really was  a Ray Allen Clearance section in the back! :-(  Didn't get anything but I may pick up a jersey when I go down to Boston laster next week.  I made it on the sold out Downeaster and sat in the Café Car which had the AC on full blast. Ahhhh, that felt so good after a day in the horrible heat (no Ray Allen pun intended!)

Sneak Peek for Kristin & Stephen “Tie the Knot❣️“

 Each wedding is unique. Even though we basically start with close to the same photo list there are always individual requests that are special to each couple. I try to bring out the essence & individuality of each couple for their special day❣️ Here is the Sneak Peek for Kristin & Stephen's beautiful wedding day! They'd never been to York so when I said we needed photos at Nubble, Kristin said, "If we have time!"  Ummmmm, NO! We need to make time . . . and we're glad we did!    My 3rd wedding in 3 months and final one of 2022 for me!  Two hearts, one from New Hampshire and one from Newfoundland, were united in a small, intimate ceremony surrounded by close family members & lots of love at York Harbor Inn in York, Maine when Kristin and Stephen literally “tied the fisherman’s double knot❣️” on July 6, 2022. Read the story of tying the Fisherman's Knot. Second wedding I’ve done w
On April 19, 2022 a t 2:35 pm, the exact time of my birth 68 years later, I was at my very favorite place, Pemaquid Lighthouse! It worked out perfectly; I had planned on photographing sunrise, but it was raining so I went later in the day.  THIS is 68! I left on my solo secret birthday road trip on Monday April 18th. I made a pit stop at the Yarmouth Information Center to pick up some brochures. A guy in the parking lot saw my CELTS-6 license plate and Celtics hat and started talking about how great Sunday’s game was! :-) Once a year, I always like to go somewhere I haven’t been before. I took a side trip to Land’s End on Bailey Island. Just sorry I never made it there before my friend, Dan Millar, passed away. I want to go back for photos of The Giant Stairs, Lookout Point, Cribstone Bridge and the little lobster shack in Mackerel Cove when it’s a little warmer.  When I lived in Maine I would go to Tortola in April. Now I go from NH to Maine!  LoL     I arrived at Sheepscot Harbour Vi

And just like that . . . 2022 is a Wrap!

It's been a busy 2022 for me & Bev Tabet Photography ! January was spent watching the Celtics, photographing my food 😂and frozen bubbles and attending the NHSPA Photography Show at the Exeter Town Hall Gallery. February was low key with more Celtics games, day knitting and Alpha Xi Sista ZOOMs. I did manage to get out of Dodge in March with a few days in Hull with my Alpha Xi roomie as we took the spectator boat for the Hull Snow Row. Got some great photos including some of rowers from the New Bedford Area. That was followed by a 5-day visit to Ocean Point, Maine with Joan Libby. Both are always a fun time!  I took a little solo 68th birthday trip in April to Sheepscot Harbour Village in Edgecomb, Maine and got to go to my favorite Pemaquid Lighthouse and also Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse for some stormy images. I also got a taste of Spring at the Cider Hill Farm Tulip Fest in Amesbury, MA.   In May I returned to Cider Hill Farm for pick-your-own tulips, photographed a l
