Covering The Best Buddies Hyannis Port Challenge for 15 out of the 17 times, is challenging.  Each year, the basic elements are similar.  Trying to find an image that is new and fresh can be,  to say the least, perplexing.  Weeks prior to the event, discussions are underway to brain storm ideas and concepts.  There are phone calls, shot list preparations, and just a lot of thinking to figure how to make this year's event memorable.  Fortunately, there is a wonderful team of staff and volunteer photographers who can concentrate on the must have shots.

This year the plan was for me to shoot less, which meant not having to cover everything, because it would be well documented.  Thus the goal was to find five specific situations, as well as not be shoulder to shoulder with the others.  Additionally, in the "staged" situations find angles that were different and true moments.

It's great to be part of a team of devoted and talented Best Buddies staff and photographers.

At the last second, jumped into the lead car and made this photo at the beginning of the ride.
