Shimon Peres, z'l

Baruch dayan emet. May there be peace, and may the memory of Shimon Peres, z'l, be for a blessing. 

I made this photograph of him speaking at a ceremony in Arlington Cemetery in 1996. He was an elegant, thoughtful man, a true statesman, dedicated to his people, and to the wisdom, moral imperative, and necessity of peace. שלום

Scenes from a wedding

Ruth and I recently attended the wedding of Karishma Patel and Mike Tovey. Ruth's daughter Marjorie was a bridesmaid.

It was quite an occasion, held over three days.

These are a few of my impressions of the festivities, including the mehndi, garba, and baarat rituals.

Color. Joy. Union.

Congratulations, best wishes, and thanks to Karishma and Mike, and special thanks to Karishma's parents, Vijay and Sunanda Patel, for hosting us all in such grace and style.
