New Year 2012 / by M Durquet

This new year transition has given me the opportunity to take a few pictures, the by-products of visiting friends. Here are more glass objects from the same window sill I photographed in an earlier post. It's always interesting how the passing of a few months and different light transforms everything. And then there are portraits of two of my favorite Basque people in the world. On the right is Johnny Curutchet, the only living American-born berstolari, and on the left is Agna Iriartborde, who has kept Basque culture alive in the bay area for decades,  in more ways than one could count.
