I was one of the photographers on site for this year’s Yulefest, a holiday themed 5K race in Cambridge. My friends, who have helped out at this race before, assured me that I’d have a good time, and they were absolutely correct.

The crowd was lively and energetic, and costume contests and dance-offs combined with seemingly endless beer on tap made for a highly entertaining afternoon of shooting. 

I owe thanks to the random Harvard student I saw standing out on his balcony before the race began, who let me into his dorm room so I could shoot the start from up high (as seen in Photo 5 above). I was in and out of his room quickly and got what I needed in no longer than a minute, so I’m sure he was totally bewildered. I think he had just gotten out of bed. Anyway, it was a nice gesture.

Here are some pictures from this weekend’s holiday celebrations at Fenway Park. 

It made for a few really cold afternoons of work, but a lot of fun nonetheless. It was also neat to explore Fenway in the snow.
