Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Two recent reflections photos: the first from the Ides of March Festival in Somerville, a mirror set up to help people properly fasten their togas, and the second, the reflection of a military band from the bell of the tuba at the Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Beware! The Ides of March Festival

Somerville, Mass., is known for its quirkiness, so it was no surprise when we discovered it was hosting an Ides of March Festival Saturday. There were secret meetings, a ceremonial “coronation” of Caesar, a soothsayer and more. Good fun, and a great opportunity to teach some history.
