Over the weekend I went down to Philadelphia and moseyed on down the street to meet up with a friend in Delaware. While down there I ended up shooting an assignment for The News Journal.

Cokesbury Village in Hockessin, a retirement community, hosted the northern leg of Delaware Hospice’s annual fundraiser, the Festival of Trees. The event was hoping to raise $200,000, which is used to provide care for elderly patients throughout the state.

A worthy cause and an enjoyable, albeit challenging photographically, day. I had a great time just hanging out for an hour with the residents of the home and mingling with the people there. People like 92-year-old Doris Corner, who was still a charmer and one of the nicest people I’ve met in a long time. It’s people like her that make this job fun.
