Backgrounds of someone my age can go on for a bit; I think of myself as an interesting person but I may just be your ordinary middle-aged single mom. I raise chickens, I shoot barmitzvahs on weekends, I have two boys who have made me alternately laugh and cry for 20 years now. I'm a corporate attorney in a Park Avenue law firm who dreams of moving to Cuba and hanging out with tobacco farmers all day. And one day I may be able to, if the boys ever get launched. I wasn't planning on doing this, submitting photographs, but it came across my facebook feed tonight and I had one night to hand something in before the deadline. I'm glad I did because it took me back to Cuba, and the farmers, and exactly the reason I take pictures. The people I get to meet and talk to. Thank you for looking and taking the time to give me any feedback.
