Dan and Tom Fenn – Father and son, Lexington Minutemen members
I love this photograph of Dan and Tom. The love and admiration that this father and son have for each other really resounds in this photo. Tom, a local attorney and a member of the Lexington Minutemen, rings the bell on the eve of Patriots Day, so I thought the belfry would be a fitting photo location. I scouted it out the day and computed the time of day when the sun would be streaming through the bell tower. Tom’s father, Dan, also a member of the Lexington Minutemen, all 90 years of him, made this photo by climbing the steep hill to the base of the belfry. It was no small effort, and it results in a splendid portrait that speaks to the character of the subjects, packing in a little town history as well.
