HEY, SMILE! Louise Fennell leads the Stringer photo group while producing such pictures as the Christmas scene above. The group is growing slowly with the advent of weekly shooting sessions, and the Stringers are puchasing a new digital camera for use in training. Anyone interested can show up at the Milano Senior Center at 1pm on Fridays, with camera and positive attitude.

MIRROR-WRITER Louise Fennell took her photo group beyond the city limits this week, deciding that we should stretch our mission and "shoot Melrose at Faneuil Hall". Of the 50 or so resulting photos, the editors chose Louise's shot of a white carriage with Christmas decorations -- and its rather English-looking driver. This is what Boston looks like.
