We Now Interrupt your Regularly-Scheduled Great Blue Herons

My daughter strikes a pose with Comet Hale-Bopp.

Me and my comet,
strolling down the avenue

With apologies to Judy Garland

It doesn’t get more out of this world than Comet Hale-Bopp, poised above my daughter’s shoulder.

If you missed Hale-Bopp last time around, it will be back in our neighborhood in about 4,500+ years, assuming that our neighborhood will still be here, of course.

(We now return to the Great Blue Herons with thanks for allowing this temporary derail.)

From July 1 through July 30, 2016, I was the Featured Artist of the Month at the Summer Street Gallery. The Great Blue Heron photographs once again graced the walls of the lobby and theater in a one-woman show at The Center for Arts in Natick. In addition to the visual arts shown at the gallery, TCAN has a lively, dynamic lineup of upcoming performing artists.

Through July 13, 2017 I was a Featured Artist at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

  1. Well that is simply fabulous – daughter and comet.

    • Thanks so much, Tish! We had a lot of fun together photographing Hale-Bopp back then. One challenge was estimating how long the exposure should be. (This was back in the pre-digital era.) Her solution was to count one hippopotamus, two hippopotamus, three hippopotamus. As you can see, it worked. Best, Babsje
