FestiFools 2014

After the crazy-long winter — and FoolMoon’s frozen precipitation — we so appreciated the beautiful spring weather we got for FestiFools. I don’t know if we had a record-sized crowd, but it sure seemed like it. Keeping everyone’s hips shaking were THREE different drum troupes: FestiFools veternans U-M Groove was...

FoolMoon 2014

At 7:30pm, I was feeling a bit unsure about the impending FoolMoon. The weather was living up to the dire forecast — cold, drizzly, and gusty. And the customary throngs of luminary-wielding townsfolk were — not merely by coincidence, it seemed to me — nowhere to be seen out in...

FestiFools 2013

FestiFools 2013 was awesome — and, lasting just 60 minutes, also a blur. The weather was perfect, the amassed Fools were pumped and giddy, smiling faces abounded, music filled the street… (Also, every child under 12 got a free pony!) I was delighted to see so many friends and neighbors and...

FoolMoon 2013

It was great to see so many veteran and first-time Fools participating in FoolMoon 2013. Their energy was amazing — enthusiastic, creative, welcoming, friendly, and, as always, totally Foolish! Also, the weather more than cooperated, which isn’t something we in Ann Arbor take for granted. I’ve said much more in...

Halloween 2012

Max has not only become fixated on a TV show that debuted in 1959, but zealously promotes it to everyone within earshot. He’s enticed countless Ann Arbor grade-schoolers — and even a couple of Brooklynites [Iris and Nate, I’m talking to you!] — to join the cult of “Dennis the...

FoolMoon 2012

The weather wasn’t nearly as warm as last year’s inaugural FoolMoon, but we were all thanking our lucky stars that it was at least dry. Precipitation, of any variety, may not have dampened the spirits of the most FoolHardy, but I fear it would have kept a lot of the...

FestiFools 2012

Irony: After a Foolish weekend steeped in “Language: The Human Quintessence,” I find myself utterly lacking … whaddaya call them things? … oh yeah, words. So we’ll let the photos do most of the talking. Honestly, I normally like to say more but I’m still catching my breath from the...

A Mad Dash towards FoolMoon + FestiFools 2012

Without a moment to spare, here’s my annual, behind-the-scenes sneak-peek at the making of Ann Arbor’s Weekend of Foolishness. The weekend kicks off with tomorrow evening’s FoolMoon, which debuted last year (FoolMoon 2011) and instantly took its rightful place in the pantheon of not-to-be-missed happenings in Ann Arbor. FestiFools “occupies”...

Halloween 2011

Look what happens when your family decides to coordinate costumes for Halloween: Oedipus Shmoedipus! Actually, these two are dressed as brothers. And please, tell me you know which brothers! (Believe it or not, I’ve recently come across several otherwise educated people who had not heard of the Marx Brothers. For them, this blog entry will undoubtedly provide a vital public service!)

FestiFools 2011

If you’ll endulge me, I’d like to open my remarks today by quoting the ever-eloquent FestiFools Q. Public (on Twitter): A2 Fools are BEST! Mother Nature threw us a curve ball today, but we (to mix a metaphor) made lemonade out of it. Bravo! Yes, the weather was a major factor in...

FoolMoon 2011

Wow! The very first FoolMoon event was a crazy success — what a massive outpouring of creativity (HUNDREDS of people made their own luminary sculptures and brought them out to the street), soul-thumpin’ beats (big ups to Vulf Duo, JUICE, and the Third Coast Kings), and communal good cheer (everybody...

Marching towards FoolMoon + FestiFools 2011

Without a moment to spare — I mean, a weekend of Foolishness kicks off TOMORROW NIGHT! — I am finally ready to unveil my annual, behind-the-scenes sneak-peek at the making of FestiFools. Given that FestiFools is now celebrating its fifth anniversary, our Foolish friends have seen fit keep the Foolish...

Halloween 2010

President Obama @ UM Commencement 2010

Photographing the UM commencement on Saturday, May 1 was an exhilarating, mind-expanding experience. For starters, before that day I’d never so much as set foot inside the Big House (weird, I know). And, to the best of my knowledge, I’d never been within a nautical mile of Barack Obama (or...

FestiFools 2010

Where did that preciously Foolish hour go? FestiFools came and went far too quickly this year. Even though I was utterly spent by 5pm — as were numerous others, especially those carrying puppets — there were so many more moments I wished I’d captured. Alas, that is the nature of...

Halloween 2009

The election and MLB World Series are now officially over, and everyone here has adjusted to the time change. Finally, we feel at liberty to turn our attention back to Halloween. This year, Max had his heart set on dressing up as a guy from Star Wars — and he would...

Ann Arbor Summer Festival 2009

Breathless! That’s me after shooting 16 days (out of 24) at the Festival. This is the first Festival out of the past three I’ve shot where there wasn’t a performance in the sky above Ingalls Mall. I don’t mind admitting that performers such as Strange Fruit and Heliosphere can make it...

FestiFools 2009

FestiFools 2009 is, as the movie moguls say, “in the can.” It was totally wicked great — and only slightly moist (which, judging by the giddy expressions I saw up and down Main St., didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits). There’s so much to show and tell that we’d better cut...

Halloween 2008

Pardon this late posting about our Halloween. With the election and my peak season, I’ve been monumentally distracted. Fortunately, the statute of limitations is a week, so we’re good. What a glorious night it was — we had the most perfect weather. This Halloween was the 5th anniversary of Max, Lyd,...

FestiFools 2008

Wow! FestiFools 2008 was completely, totally, utterly, absolutely, wicked awesome! Giant puppets marauding on Main Street; throngs of volunteers and spectators jumping, dancing, clapping, and shouting “Wahoo!”; Groove beating on buckets and ladders; clowns and music-makers clowning and making music (respectively); Zoltan posing mind-boggling koans; lots of happy faces; plenty...

Marching towards FestiFools 2008

The 2nd FestiFools Parade is coming around faster than you can get dishpan hands from working with papier-mâché (which, trust me, is pretty fast). On Sunday, April 6 from 4–5pm, giant, fanciful puppets (and foolish co-conspirators) will once again descend upon downtown Ann Arbor, and dance like there’s no tomorrow....

Halloween 2007

The last half hour before trick-or-treating always rushes by in a matter of seconds. Shovel something nutritious down our throats, throw on the costumes and make-up, go to the bathroom, don’t forget a raincoat, our friends are here, time to go… I didn’t dress up. But I had the great...

It Was 7 Years Ago Today

Not only would I marry my wonderful husband all over again, but we’d have the exact same wedding (except we’d include the close friends we’ve made since then). Roll the credits… Photography Donna Terek, (313) 331.0179 More about Donna below. Cake topper and sugar flowers Luke and Tam at Very Different Cakes in LA. Trivia: Luke and...

Dedication

I dedicate Relish to my husband, Rich, for all his encouragement, support, and hard work in making Myra Klarman Photography a dream come true. I couldn’t have done this without him, nor would I have wanted to.

Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade

My son, Max, regularly gets his hair cut by Bob Dascola of Dascola Barbers. Every year, Bob a.k.a. Bobbo the Clown, assembles a band of clowns to march in the Jaycees Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade. After years of participating, he realized that by marching in the parade, he...
