"Inexhaustibly For Anya," a short doc I shot and produced for the International Documentary Challenge, in one long weekend with Steve Stuart last year, is screening tonight with other shorts at the Winter Film Festival in Marblehead.

Our short won the "People's Choice Award" for best film at the Marblehead Festival of Arts last summer at its premier.

The film tells the story of Marblehead's own Keri Cahill, founder of the Rebel Shakespeare Company and her heartfelt determination to bring Anya, the sister of her adopted Russian daughter, to the United States.

You can follow Keri's continuing quest on her blog, "Creating My Own Little Nirvana."

My Meteor

Sometimes being late and carrying your camera with you everywhere pays off.

On January 29th I walked to Harvard Square to catch a movie at the Brattle Theatre. I brought my camera and tripod figuring to get some snowy nighttime Harvard Square shots after the film.

Well, I underestimated the snow drifts and consequently, the time it would take to get there. I arrived late for the movie. Irritated with myself, I started my solo photo walk earlier than planned.

And then this happened:

Time to make a big wish, I guess.

I posted a little more here on Flickr.
