The Leahy horse farm in Lahinch is a delightful destination to photograph life as it happens in real time. The Leahy boys are hard working and always eager to lend a hand, or foot in this case... closing the barn door with the late great David Lang.
“We’ve run into a cultural situation where we’ve confused the symbol with the physical reality; the money with the wealth; and the menu with the dinner. And we’re starving on eating menus.”
Poet and super divine spirit, Marie Michaelle Santil, returned to the ancestors this spring leaving behind a legacy of artistry and friendship. Skye Gallery will host an installation of prints and poems in her honor from July 11 - July 31, 2020, in the hopes that people who wish to celebrate her life and grieve her loss can do so surrounded by her image and her profound words. It will also be an opportunity for those who didn't know her to learn about this deeply moving Providence artist.
The following photographers have graciously offered their portraits of her for this tribute experience:

There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into the mermaid shoots and Betha Wood is a genius of hair and makeup with model Kaitlyn Frolich at Barnaby Castle, Providence
All right then, I'll go to hell.

The Spancil Hill Horse Fair, Cross of Spancilhill, County Clare, Ireland.
Each year on the 23rd of June, the nearby Fair Green is used for the famous Spancilhill Horse Fair. At one time, Spancilhill was said to be Ireland's largest fair with buyers from Britain, Russia, Prussia, and France competing to purchase the best stock for their Imperial armies.
Sadly there is no fair this year but I am looking forward to 2021.

The greatest gift that I tried to give my children is the freedom to be who they are and my greatest Father’s Day gift are these socks!

Although the Long Trail is known as Vermont’s “footpath in the wilderness,” its character may more accurately be described as backcountry. On its way to Canada, this “footpath in the wilderness” climbs rugged peaks and passes pristine ponds, alpine sedge, hardwood forests, and swift streams. It is steep in places, muddy in others, and rugged in most not unlike my life at the time I backpacked it with my buddy Jamie Smith. It was a trip of comradship, laughter, blood, sweat and tears. Jamie has since passed but the memories remain including this photograph "Lil Red Barn' taken along the way.
