We've received so many nice comments on Ed's "Poet's Quill" photo on the cover of the The Back Bay Sun that we decided to share it with our BostonZest readers. And, we wanted to say, "Thank You," to all our friends and neighbors who stop to say nice things about our photos. We appreciate the encouragement and support.
The caption we wrote for the newspaper was:
At the Boston Women’s Memorial, rain droplets beaded on Phillis Wheatley’s quill pen. Most feathers for quill pens were taken from the wings of geese. After writing a couple of pages, your quill would need resharpening with a penknife. [Ed Cherubino Photo]
Background on this Photo
As is the case for many of our photo assignments, we both took a number of photos of the Boston Women's Memorial right after it had its annual cleaning and waxing by conservators hired by the Friends of the Public Garden and paid for by contribution to the Henry Lee Conservation Fund.
Ed and I have different approaches to photography which makes for a nice selection of varied shots when we put all our photos on a topic into our computers to select the right one for the client. Ed loves his Nikon 35mm 1.8 fixed lens. I love my Nikon 28-300 Zoom. This day, Ed captured the feel of the raindrops on the surface of the quill.
