Happy New Year and Hats

Happy New Year! I hope that 2011 brings health, happiness, and prosperity to everyone who follows Scott Kasper Photography (and even to those who don’t – may they see the error in their ways!). Below is the final installment of Hats from Mount Snow, Vermont. I hope you enjoyed this little project…It was quite a challenge seeking out these hats and capturing them without the knowledge of the wearer. I have another personal project in mind (aside from any work that I may do for clients) for 2011…you’ll just have to stay tuned to find out what it is!!

Before I leave you with the hats…one more New Year message…back in 1996 I made a New Year resolution that I have been able to maintain now for 15 years. That resolution was that I will no longer, ever again, for all eternity make any New Year Resolutions. So far so good….I hope you are equally successful in whatever your New Year resolution may be. Now, on to the hats…


Happy New Year Everyone!!

Hats of Mount Snow

The “Vermont House” as the boys call it overlooks the Mount Snow ski area in West Dover, Vermont. This evening we were treated to a special surprise – the staff at the mounted did a torch-light parade down the mountain followed by fire works. For the photogs who follow my blogging, these were each taken using a tripod, a 135 mm lens, ISO 100, f/22 and 15 seconds.  Unfortunately some trees between the house and the mountain got in the way of the torch-light parade.

Before all of that, I spent some time during the day capturing a few more of Mount Snow’s most interesting hats…check them out…I am related to two of the subjects from today’s parade of hats….do you know which they are? Please feel free to leave comments about which are your favorite from today.

Stay Tuned…more hats to follow over the next few days!!


Christmas BBQ Dinner

I’ll address today’s title in a moment….first, I want to wish everyone to whom it applies a very Merry Christmas!! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday today and that your upcoming new year is one filled with health, happiness, and prosperity!!

Now…back to the title…That’s right…We had BBQ for Christmas dinner and it was awesome! I must say it was a bit of a deviation from Christmas dinners past….those have typically consisted of take-out Chinese food. Honestly that would have been the case this evening as well, but the one and only Chinese restaurant here in Vermont’s Deerfield Valley was completely booked. I’m guessing that just like us, most of the other Jewish families from Connecticut, New York and New Jersey who made the trek up here yesterday also decided to eat at First Wok tonight….we were just too slow! That said, our Christmas dinner catered by Hebrew National was a fantastic culmination of an awesome day of skiing!!

While I don’t have any photos of the burgers, franks, beans, kraut, slaw, pickles, and buns, I do have a bunch of photos from today’s Mt. Snow excursion. We’ll likely ski several more days while we’re here, but today brought perfect weather so along with all my other ski gear, I donned my backpack and skied with my camera…enjoy!!

Happy Holiday’s once again…in the words of a writer much more talented and famous that I will ever be….Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
