Cover Photo of "America At Home" Book!

Arriving on bicycles, red wagons and foot neighbors began to gather at the home of freelance writer and scientist Petra Spiess in Bradburn Village in Westminster, Colorado. Bradburn is one of a number of “new urbanist” communities boasting an old time neighborhood feel with shops and restaurants you can walk to. Everyone quickly settled in on the spacious front porch with appetizers and drinks while the kids played on the front lawn. I was there to photograph the “porch party” for the book, America at Home, an extraordinary book of photographs that captures the rituals, intimate moments and the ways we work, play, learn, and interact with friends and family (and pets!) at home. Fortunately, my photograph of girls blowing bubbles was selected for the cover.
