Goucher recognizes founder’s birthday with afternoon tea


"The Reverend's Rebels, Goucher's female A Capella group, perform in front of guests at the Mary Fisher Tea at Goucher College's Athenaeum Tuesday, March 22, 2011."

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: photography is my favorite way to take my mind off of things. On days when life can seem confusing and chaotic, producing images is something that’s simple. It’s just you and whatever fills your viewfinder.

That’s how I felt yesterday while I was shooting this assignment for The Quarterly. I hadn’t ever seen the Mary Fisher Tea, a campus tradition honoring the birthday of Mary Fisher Goucher, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

It didn’t matter much, though. I was able to shoot a nice variety of types of shots in the short window of time that I had.

Between being pleased with my work and speaking with some cheerful ladies sipping their afternoon tea, I left feeling much better than I did when I came in.
