All that we desired was a break from the scorching June sun and to step into a Winter Wonderland. And the House of Blues read our minds. A snow making machine sprinkling some winter love, an artistically carved snowflake ice sculpture by the Brookline Ice Company, a reindeer shimmering with silvered mirrors and an inflated snow globe–and the world, for two whole hours, had become a photographer’s utopia. The House of Blues had organized this open-house party to thank all of their clients with a night full of fun, food and drink. We were invited to document this incredible party by our friends at the House of Blues, Boston.
Having spent the past three years walking the quiet lanes of Amherst, I was thrilled to experience life in Boston with it’s eighty-four sub-districts, squares and neighborhoods.

I was transported back to my five year old-self, starry-eyed and watering-mouth, when I walked into Boston’s City Hall Plaza, on June 9th. I was about to step into the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl – the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat-ice cream festival – and since the whole idea of having access to an infinite number of various flavored ice cream scoops, was new to me, I was sailing swiftly on cloud nine.
We pushed our way through the sea of surging crowd of adults and children alike – all resembling five-year olds with sticky hands and smiling faces – to where the ice-cream stands were lined up. Baskin Robbins, all dressed in pink and white was offering the exquisite flavors of Wild ‘n Reckless Sherbet, Cookie Jar Mashup, Caramel Turtle Truffle and Vanilla Pomegranate Parfait Frozen Yogurt. And I had to choose one. One, of all the other enticing flavors calling out to me. One, because there were a dozen other ice-cream stands waiting with open arms. One, because unfortunately, I have the appetite of a sparrow. The Cookie Jar Mashup, won me over with it’s promise to be as crunchy as creamy.
David and Elyssa excitedly discuss what vacations mean to them – and more importantly talk about the very important process of photographing the memories these vacations have to offer. While David contemplates on the pros and cons of choosing between a four-day or a ten-day vacation, Elyssa shares some photography tactics that she plans to use while in Sunny Florida. It is also interesting to note their talk of how camera gear changes with place, time, light and subject! Together they introduce us to some wonderful photography hacks, answer typical questions of, “What gear should I carry?” and await all the vacations that beckon them!
