These aren’t prize winners by any means, but I wanted to post them anyway just for the sake of putting something out there that wasn’t baseball related. I spent some time shooting the Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival on Saturday, and stumbled onto this Brazilian percussion ensemble¬†which I hung with for a while.

It always feels good to shoot something different after covering the same thing day in and day out. It’s also a bit of a challenge, which I love. It makes you think in ways that you haven’t had to in a long time.
