Tom Tom Opening Gala

The Tom Tom Founders Festival kicked off this past Friday with an opening gala event held at The McGuffey Art Center.

From the site:

On April 13, Founders Day, we launch Tom Tom from the steps of the McGuffey, the historic school house that has served as the central civic art institution for decades. The perfect spring day and the first outdoor concert of the season, we will have a block party, a street food fair, children’s activities, public art exhibition, and prominent local bands playing from the front steps and inside the studios. 

There are events throughout the month of April and May, be sure to check the calendar for more information.

Rosanna and Leo

Before joining my folks in Bethesda, Maryland for Easter dinner Sunday, I stopped by Rock Creek Park Horse Center to photograph my friend Rosanna and her riding partner Leo.

Rosanna and Leo have been riding together for a little over two years and would you believe it, Leo is 29 years-old.

She had this to say about Leo, “It took me spending the past few years with an 1100 lb draft horse to learn patience, and empathy. Leo has made me stronger physically and emotionally, and I feel very lucky to have met him, and to have earned his trust. The second I met him, I handed him mine on a platter.”
