The Pink Mile

UPDATE: The dear sweet woman for whom this glorious event this was for, has passed away this evening, November 21, 2015. As you read this post and view these images, please think of her, her family,  friends and the community.  I met Kelly for a brief moment, and seeing how much she was loved, the photos on her Facebook profile, made me smile. Say a prayer, or a special thought for them all. From what I understand, these photos brought much comfort and joy to them, and I say to, that the honor was all mine. Please leave a lovely comment for the her family and her friends. Thank you everyone. 

Our community does a lot of wonderful things for people. A woman, a daughter, a sibling, a wife, and a mother, has cancer, and is fighting hard. She just came home from the hospital. Battling cancer for 7+ years is hard. I don’t know her, but I want to now. My friend contacted me, because she put together a last minute fundraiser to help the family with meals and money to get through these days.

We met at the Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Bordentown Township, NJ. They walked a half mile to their home, and then another half mile back to the starting point, this included members of her family, including her mother. What transpired was amazing.   ThePinkMile_TeamKelly_DeirdreRyanCommercialandEditorialPhotography1 ThePinkMile_TeamKelly_DeirdreRyanCommercialandEditorialPhotography2 ThePinkMile_TeamKelly_DeirdreRyanCommercialandEditorialPhotography3 ThePinkMile_TeamKelly_DeirdreRyanCommercialandEditorialPhotography4

I got up on a very tall ladder and with the help of others, arranged all of these people and children into one large group photo.

Our adult choir lost a dear friend, a fierce, fun loving, full of life woman last week. Today is her viewing, and tomorrow, we are going to sing her funeral Mass. It’s going to be so hard. So, I needed this event, and I know my friend was looking down on me yesterday, I can’t explain it, I just know it. Thank you everyone for letting me be a part of something truly wonderful.

Costumes, Drill Teams and The Joker

Halloween is a big deal in my town, so big that we have a lot of events. Halloween decorating contests, we have a Ghost Walk, a parade, and a street shuts down just for that one night. Our local schools even have big Halloween events as fundraisers.

Our daughter is a Junior Girl Scout, she’s dressed up as Rumpleteazer from the musical Cats. My husband who sews, made the costume, wig, tail and did her makeup. She and her troop walked in the parade, threw candy to people along the route and had a good time. I got to walk and sit in the back on the pick up truck in front of us from the Daisy Troop in front of us. My husband’s costume was The Joker that he created from items he had already.

Just a little ways in front of us was the Camden Sophisticated Sisters Drill Team, and not too far behind us was   The Baltimore Westsiders Marching Band.

Lighting the Night For Lymphoma and Leukemia

 

When you’re part of a larger picture for an assignment, filled with people who are fighting for their lives, survivors or who have lost loved ones to cancer, you know that the photos you’re taking are special to those around you.

A fellow photographer was unable to shoot that night, so I was able to step in. Photographing for Burlington Coat Factory Stores last week for the Light The Night Walk at Forrestal Village in Princeton, NJ, made me once again, feel grateful.

We have all been touched by cancer of some kind, whether in our family, a co-worker, a friend or yourself.  Take a moment each day, to look around you, breathe, and be thankful for all that we have.

Uncle Floyd and Les The Mentalist Perform In Bordentown, NJ

Acts like these are getting fewer and fewer, so when you see a show that reads Uncle Floyd with Special Guest Les The Mentalist, then you should buy a ticket, bring friends and see the show.

Randy Now hosted the performance at the Open Arts Stage in Bordentown, NJ on May 16, 2015.

The first act was Les the Mentalist, and what he does is help bend the way your brain perceives things, he makes you think and is really damn funny too. Truly Les’s act is one to catch!

After Les The Mentalist’s act was Uncle Floyd! If you’re from New Jersey growing up, you’ll remember him from his tv, The Uncle Floyd Show  I remember watching this on UHF channel 48 I “think”….closer to NYC in Northern NJ it was on another UHF channel. But Uncle Floyd is a vaudeville comedienne, who is also a fantastic piano player. (A little known fact about myself, I’m a classically train pianist, so when I hear someone who’s good, I mention it, because it’s literally a joy to my ears.)

Myself and the audience were laughing so hard we were crying, we had such a great time! People, you really need to see Uncle Floyd live in person. lesthementalistunclefloyd87 lesthementalistunclefloyd100 lesthementalistunclefloyd107 lesthementalistunclefloyd122 lesthementalistunclefloyd128 lesthementalistunclefloyd138 lesthementalistunclefloyd142

Peter Tork and The Shoe Suede Blues Concert Shot By Bordentown Photographer

On Saturday, November 29, 2014, my buddy Randy Now, introduced Peter Tork and his band The Shoe Suede Blues on stage at the Open Arts Theater in Bordentown Township. This is my second time seeing Peter and his band perform here and I was super excited again. I’m a huge fan of The Monkees and I really like that Peter is doing the blues. You can check out his music by clicking on this link

He played music from his new album Step by Step and of course quite a few by The Monkees. The photo above is where he’s playing Daydream Believer and parts of the song he lets the audience sing. It was AWESOME!

After taking this shot I was in the back with my friends singing quite loudly, I sing in a church choir 😉

National Night Out Photographed By Local Editorial Photographer For The Register News

National Night Out was celebrated in Bordentown Township at Joseph Lawrence Park on August 5th, 2014. The entire event was free, including face painting, police demonstrations, demonstrations, music, food and drinks. This awareness-raising event in the United States, is held the first Tuesday of August.

As found on Wikipedia:

The event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada.

The event is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug preventiontown watchneighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.

The events are typically organized by block watches, non-for-profit organizations, companies, and police departments. These events can be as simple as backyard cookouts to full-blown festivals like the one on the west side of Columbus, Ohio. The Ogden Block Watch in Columbus organizes one of the largest of this type of National Night Out festival which includes live music, food, and entertainment.

2nd Annual Bordentown, NJ 4th of July Fireworks Display

On Saturday, July 5, 2014, at the Joseph Lawrence Park in Bordentown Township, hosted by The Foundation for Bordentown Traditions, held the 2nd Annual Independence Day Firework Celebration. The Foundation for Bordentown Traditions has spent the last 12 months fundraising to bring back the fireworks.

I volunteer for this wonderful organization. That day I was stationed at the 50/50 tent at the entrance of the park, welcoming everyone and encouraging them to help raise money for next year’s fireworks with a 50/50 ticket. This year’s winner bought theirs during The Street Of Dreams Car Show in June and won $1107.50! I love being a part of this group of volunteers, it’s one of the ways that I can help to give back to my community.

That night they had a local celebrity Dunk Tank; the money to dunk your favorite Bordentown Resident into the Dunk Tank. All money raised from the Dunk Tank went directly back to the Foundation. 50/50 tickets were sold and the winner was announced that evening around 8PM. This is one of the only ways the Foundation was raising money the night of the fireworks. There were free face painting, inflatables, live music, and local restaurants in the food area.

 

 

 

 

 

The Circus Came To Town

Our friend John wanted to become a professional clown. Back in the fall of 2012 he started a crowdfunding campaign to help him achieve his dream.  Send John to Clown School! No, Really… 

John was asking for $1600, and in just one month raised $1750! We donated $5 and for that we got a very generous hug 🙂

Now John and his wife, the lovely, Clara work for the Kelly Miller Circus, a one ring, big top travelling circus. We went after our daughter got out of school on June 12th, drove down to Browns Mills, NJ and had ringside seats, courtesy of John and Clara. Unfortunately we missed the tiger and a couple of other acts. Our daughter had never been to a big top circus before and this was truly a wonderful treat! I only brought my Canon 7D with just one lens, the Canon EF-S 17-55 f2.8, no flash and a tiny Canon S100 point and shoot cameras. 

John is now the main clown act for them, his clown name is J.P. Ballyhoo and his routines were wonderful and really funny! Everyone was laughing and having a good time.

Selling Lemonade For A Lego Set

Little boy sells lemonade to buy a Lego set. Photo by Deirdre Ryan Photography.

 

Our 4 year old next door neighbor, Cole, wants to buy the Star Wars Death Star Lego set. So with the help of his mom, he put up a lemonade stand in front of his home in Bordentown City during the Annual City Wide Yard Sale on June 7th, 2014. Each cup was 25 cents. I’m not sure how much he made that day, but that Lego set he wants costs $400. Good luck buddy!
