Although we’ve lived in North Carolina for 20 years, we have many roots in the northeast and I always enjoy getting up there – especially at this time of year.
With our son Sean getting ready to head off to college, I figured this would be a good time for us to take a trip together. Sean loves New York City, so I dropped him off with his sister Alison for a few days as I headed further north to Saratoga Springs.
It was great to see Alison and her boyfriend Mike, and I got the extra bonus of seeing my brother and sister and their families.
I first photographed the racing in Saratoga in the mid-90s and I’ve wanted to go back for some time. Thanks to my brother Ben for helping me get credentials and then getting up at 5 a.m. to go to the track with me. (We got to play a little golf too).
It was so nice seeing everyone but I wish Betsy could have made the trip.
We also wanted to congratulate Alison on her new job in New York – we are very proud and happy for you!
