days left until the Charles Party!

Friday, September 30, 2011


The auditions continue. It's kind of odd to see Will with two oars, and even more weird to see him actually looking pretty coordinated doing it. :)

Nice and quiet in the basin, as usual. Since a fair number of Charles River denizens read this, I am going to use this as my little soapbox: Please be careful out there. Yes, your practice head piece is extremely important, but it's not more important than the structural integrity of other boats and people.

Clearly not taken today. We actually had a sunrise that day.

Also not from this morning, but a good one nonetheless.

Rough times on the Charles

Nice puddles.. Bonus question--whose stern is that?

Stan! We were roommates for six years, during which time I dabbled in photography, and Stan rode my trainer a few times, and never mentioned the words triathlon. Fast forward about four years, we now live on different coasts, and have in depth conversations about both f-stops and Zipp wheels. Guess we learned something from each other after all. :)

Oh hey, Lauren.

As much as you can steal the show at a wedding, Eugene's Aunt Valya and Uncle Grisha certainly came pretty close. Everyone was ranting and raving about both of their performances this morning.

On Saturday morning, Eugene realized that he was about to get married.

But he went and did it anyway. Congratulations, Eugene and Wenjun! Great everything, and really happy to be there and be part of it!

Get it? (P.S. Thanks to Hash for operating the camera).

Nice contrast between the restless undergraduates and the stillness of everything else.

And several hours later, at Eugene's and Wenjun's rehearsal dinner.

Michelle! Ironically, two minutes later Gevvie rowed by heading in the opposite direction.

WHPG doing work.

Clearly if you row a black boat, hi-vis clothing is a must. Oh, hi, Alexis.

This might be one of my more successful attempts at HDR.

Overheard, as BU rowers headed to practice this morning--"Look right, and remember it next time you think you can't do this anymore."

Pete!!!

Awwww...

Sometimes, even sailors should get their due.

Things were pretty laid back at today's Rumble on the River.

One more from last Sunday. Nice patriotic framing from the Pru and the Green building

Style driven indeed.

No caption required, really.

One more, time, support Hillary and Kyle! Click here to donate! It's tax deductible, too!

Auditions have begun.

Linda!!! The forearm seems to be recovering from surgery rather well, that oar, on the other hand, is in for hard times. (Technically the surgery was on the other arm, I think).

As the fall starts our skyline shifts upstream.

Keeeeeet!

Tired. Very tired.

That's what I call power application.

The pru last night. Also got a red, white and blue theme going on.

One of my more vivid memories from 9/11 is the gathering of the MIT community in Killian Court a few days after the towers fell. I remember walking around and looking from friends from NYC, and looking at each other, and practically whispering--"Everyone you know ok?" Last night it was empty, but just as appropriate for the occasion.

Rowing might be silly at times, but rowing people are the best. Thank you, Kevin, for making fall rowing really fun!

Stroke for stroke. Looks like fun, don't it??? Nice shot, Hash.

I was trying to find the right way to remember today. Then I went for a walk.


Tina, who survived 9/11 because she was rowing and was late to work. There are two little girls and a tallish gentleman who are very happy that she was.

Rowing on Friday evenings is awful. Just ask Ilse.

Pre-race at Hyannis Sprint II. The cruise missile waking up.

Post race, and post 2011 triathlon season, pointing in the proper end-of-season direction. The rider/swimmer/runner finished 4th overall, and as the top non-elite. Good end to the season!

Sometimes, they just line up for you.

't was a foggy morning in the basin today

Bonus wildlife shot from outside of Greg and Marika's house.

In an ultimate small world moment, the bowman of this double turned out to work for Big Blue in Boulder.
Now that's my kind of vehicle.

Jake!

Charley seeing if these guys learned anything this summer. :)
