Anna in New York Times

Please click on this picture to see larger view!

A nice surprise today when a picture of granddaughter Anna appeared in the New York Times above a story about Port Townsend, Washington. She is "busking", i.e. playing for tips, trying to raise more money for her September stint in England, studying acting. I'm pretty sure that we were in Point Townsend the day this photo was taken. At least on a day we were visiting there (to attend her brother Johnny's college graduation) she came home triumphantly with almost two hundred dollars - and a bad sunburn. I have a feeling that Anna will appear again in the New York Times, but in their entertainment section as actor or singer. Probably not as a violinist, although she is extremely good at that.

Johnny, by the way, has arrived in Vietnam and sent a jet-lagged but enthusiastic post on Facebook. He won't start his job until Monday. He posted a number of photos, but I'll include just one of Vietnamese traffic seen from above.

That's so awesome. What a cute photo of Anna too.

A neighbor just wrote to tell me that I had a photo published in the NYTs today. Yesterday, I photographed the wedding of a beautiful couple who has very famous family.

Cool all around!
