After reading Joey’s post about Cake Ann, I just had to make a beeline¬†when done¬†filming¬†today. The¬†newest bakery in town¬†had been inundated¬†with customers all morning, and having sold out several times earlier in the day,¬†were on their twentieth or so batch, of everything!¬†I brought¬†some blueberry muffins and Kouign-amanns (pronounced queen-a-mahn) home and they were quickly devoured by husband, son, and myself.¬†Oh Lucky Us Cape Anners!

Cake Ann is located at 214 Eastern Avenue, in the small shopping plaza next to Common Crow.

LIFE ON THE LEAF EDGE: PHOTOGRAPHS OF NATIVE CATERPILLARS BY SAM JAFFE

CaterpillarSamuelJaffe2From the Museum of American Bird Art ~ 
Sam Jaffe’s spectacular photographs of New England caterpillars reveal their astonishing beauty, reminding us that we don’t need to venture far from home to be captivated by nature’s wonders.

A New England based naturalist, photographer, and educator, Jaffe grew up in Eastern Massachusetts chasing birds, mucking through ponds, and turning over leaves.  For the last seven years he has been photographing caterpillars, exhibiting his photographs and organizing programs to promote these special creatures to the public.

His photographs have received widespread acclaim. They have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The Guardian and on the widely read art and design blog, This is Colossal. Jaffe has exhibited at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio, the Boston Children’s Museum, and the MIT Center for Theoretical Physics, among other venues.

Each year Jaffe raises thousands of caterpillars of hundreds of native species, capturing female butterflies and moths, collecting their eggs and releasing them. The founder of the non-profit The Caterpillar Lab, Jaffe’s goal is to share his passion for the caterpillars of New England through first-hand encounters at museums and nature centers as well as the stunning images in his photographs and videos.

Life on the Leaf Edge: Photographs of Native Caterpillars by Samuel Jaffe¬†is open to the public January 31 through April 24, Tuesday‚ÄďSunday from 1 to 5 pm.

The Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon (MABA) is an art museum within New England’s largest conservation organization, connecting people and nature through art. The exhibitions feature art by internationally recognized artists inspired by nature. The Museum is located at 963 Washington Street in Canton and is sited within a 121 acre wildlife sanctuary.

Smoker at 276- butts hit the Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker at 7:20AM

Two hours in and she is developing some nice color- smoker running between 266 and 315.  Internal temp 132.  It was looking a little dry so I added some warm water to the water pan and spritzed the butts with a mixture of honey, tabasco, apple cider vinegar, worcestershire, and ketchup.

TOWNSHIP, LIFE IN POST-APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA, A BOOK BY ANNE REARICK FUNDRAISER

 Our friend Debbie Clark writes on behalf of her friend Anne Rearick,
“My friend Anne Rearick has 13 days left to raise the $17,500 she needs to publish her book of amazing photographs which document her visits to South Africa during the past 10 years. She is 3/4 of the way to her goal. Perhaps the good folk at GMG¬†would share her project to support Anne’s efforts? Btw: she is the wife of local musician Willie Alexander, a teacher and an amazing photographer. Thank you for your help. Best, Deb.”

Township, Life in Post-Apartheid South Africa

Your support will help me raise money to fund a 160-page book of photographs that celebrates the spirit and strength of South Africans who face endemic violence, extreme economic hardship, and racism that has not abated, while all the time maintaining dignity, hope and courage.isriylm2rcvuye0uw0az

About me:

I have been working as a documentary photographer for nearly thirty years. ¬†Over the past decade I have photographed life in the townships of Langa, Khayelitsha, Philippi and Mitchell’s Plain outside of Cape Town, South Africa. ¬†My work there began during a Guggenheim Fellowship year for my exploration of the culture of amateur boxing. During my trip, ¬†I met people living in Langa and Khayelitsha and began photographing the Luvuyo Boxing Club in Khayelitsha. I felt uncomfortable as yet another white person with a camera, ¬†photographing people with less resources and access to power. ¬†Subsequently, I¬†cut my trip short, unsure of the work I was doing and who would actually benefit from it. ¬†Upon my return to the States, ¬†I looked at the pictures I had made and decided to go back to learn more, to further explore post-apartheid life in ¬†black communities. ¬†After over a dozen trips and more than a thousand rolls of film, I began to believe that the pictures mattered-they were not about people as victims, or about poverty, or any of those things one imagines life in black South African townships to be.

Outside the cities frequented by tourists and business travelers, in vibrant townships, I found beauty and strength and all the contradictions of being human in the people I photographed; a preacher testifying to his rapt congregation; ¬†a couple’s loving embrace at day‚Äôs end; the proud regard of my friend Sindi in her traditional Xhosa dress; the moving funeral of a young Sotho man; the poetry and grace of a girl dancing on a warm Sunday afternoon;¬†¬†and the striking face of ‚ÄúDream Girl,‚ÄĚ a young woman studying to be a traditional healer, a ‚Äúsangoma.”
