In the City Streets

What will you find in the city streets?  On a recent trip to Jamaica Plain, I realized a city’s story and feel, is characterized by it’s people.  Everyone in JP has a unique presence that makes the streets so interesting to photograph. JP is one of those funky finds where it seems like wherever you may be, the bustling tempo of the city slows down enough for you to appreciate your surroundings. For instance, on a walk around Jamaica Plain’s pond, I noticed how people ambled along in no hurry, some even taking time to stop and listen to a jam session that was just starting up.  If you ever happen to be in the Boston area, JP should not missed!  Here are some shots I got from the day!

Introducing Nigel

Nigel, an affectionate black lab puppy, has become the most recent addition to our extended family. A little more then a month ago, we would never though that our cousins would be getting a dog, but we where proven wrong when we received the word that they would be getting a black lab puppy; a puppy named Nigel that would change everything. Nigel’s silky black fur and milky brown eyes evoke a heart melting adorableness that you want to cuddle and coo over for weeks. Wherever Nigel trots off to, everyone follows, making silly voices at the innocent, fury face staring up at us.  After playing wildly with his rubber toys, Nigel takes a snooze right in the middle of the kitchen, like he owns the whole floor. When Nigel wakes up, he lumbers around a bit, then skips right into play mode, where he’ll nudge your ankles to throw him his favorite chicken toy. During lunch, he’ll patiently wait at your feet, watching you intently as if he rightfully deserves a nibble off your plate. His little, wet blackberry nose will quiver with excitement, when you give in to his cuteness, offering him a small bite under the table. Nigel sure knows how to buy your affection with his endless cuddling and determined scampering about the lawn. Did I also mention he is photogenic? I can’t wait to see him grow into those huge paws of his, and see him sprinting down the beach with my cousins not to far behind. I can see Nigel and his new family will have many more memories to come! Without further adieu, welcome to the family Nigel!
