During the holidays my wife and her friend always make peanut butter cups. This year the annual event was done together and @ our house. My daughter learned how to make them and I was able to use my 50mm prime lens to document the event. It was a fun day. If you’ve never had these little delicacies, you do not know what you are missing. They do not last very long in our house.

You’re actually getting a preview to a series of images I took at a coffee plantation outside of Antigua, Guatemala. I haven’t had a chance to post them on my personal blog, but wanted to give you all the first look. It was pretty cool to visit the plantation. I had never really known what all took place during the process of making coffee. These green beans eventually become bright red and that’s when they know when to pick them. After picking there’s a whole long process that I am sure you can google if you’re really interested, but basically at the end, from this little green bulb, you get a coffee bean.

William’s black and white portraits inspired me to do this.
I am staying at my dad’s for a big part of the summer in Cape May County, New Jersey. This is a resort area. There are small islands off the bottom tip of New Jersey. Where I took these photos is on an island called Stone Harbor. I worked here for two summers at a candy store while I taught during the school year. I used to stop by this place to pick up some Maryland She Crab soup on the way home from my summer job. You’ll never taste soup like it. The man, who makes it, is Pat Tirotta. He is eighty-nine years old. He did not remember me that is why I called the title what I did. As we talked today, I found out that I taught his granddaughter about 13 years ago. He was thrilled that I was taking his photos and posting them on the internet. He said, “Great, maybe it will get me some business.” I told him I would spread the word here locally. Great food and a great man named Pat. I only hope I can be as active as he is if I live to be eighty-nine. What an inspiration this man is!
