Mount Washington Road Trip – Northern New Hampshire 07.02.20

A little time off from work this holiday weekend allowed me the opportunity to take a day trip up to Northern New Hampshire and the White Mountains region. A quick 2.5 hour drive up early Thursday morning brought me to The Mount Washington Cog Railway  , where a one-hour trip up the mountain brings passengers up to the summit, which offered some breathtaking views of the surrounding region.

Boston, MA – June 7, 2020

Last weekend, I once again found myself heading into the city of Boston to observe and document familiar locations that have gone through some truly trying, surrealistic and often tragic times.

I’ll hold off on the social commentary and present instead a series of pictures of the downtown of a city that, like many others nationwide, have dealt with a double whammy of recent civil unrest alongside a months-long pandemic.

Be safe, everyone.

Boston, MA – May 24, 2020

Here’s a second set of photos taken last Sunday while I walked around Boston. Given the events over the past seven days -and in particular, last night- in both this country and the city of Boston, a mere week ago feels more like an eternity.
 
Everyone, please stay safe and please, watch out for one another.

Archives: Paris, France – November 2011

Over the past week or so, I have been going through the external hard drive archives looking for older pics to play around with. Going back nearly a decade -God, has it really been that long?-, I came across some pics from one of my business trips to Paris, France in November of 2011. These were taken at the start of my mid-life photography journey, so I have (hopefully) improved on picture taking since then. It was a learning experience, and a tremendously fun one at that.
 
So, take a few moments to treat yourself to a quick mental vacation to Paris. I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy.

Miscellaneous – May 8, 2020

As staying at home enters its second month -I think it’s been two months- here in Massachusetts, I continue to dig through the archives to work on some older pics. Here are a few more from Boston back in March of 2020 and one photo taken down on Cape Cod back in October of last year.

So while we all wait to get back to something that slightly resembles normal life again, stay safe!

Short Film: “Boston, MA. 03.22.20”

Every so often, I will take my photos and combine them into a short film. Usually, this is done to try and sell a new book or seek funding for a new book project. This time, however, I simply decided to take all of my processed pics from my recent Boston series and put them together in a short film simply as a document of this incredibly surreal, heartbreaking time we are all going through right now.

I hope you like it.

Stay At Home: The Prequel – Melrose, MA January, 2015

A little over five years ago, the New England region was the recipient of several rounds of big snowstorms, including a blizzard at the end of January -I believe it was the end of that month- that caused the governor of Massachusetts to order everyone outside of essential personnel off the roads and stay home (part of that sound familiar?). Well, unlike our recent situation, I actually did venture out to wander around my hometown of Melrose to take pictures. I figure the most the authorities would do is just roll their eyes at me (actually, the ones I encountered just waved).

The quiet that blanketed my hometown that snowy January day was slightly unsettling, but it certainly wasn’t in the same league as what I felt when walking through downtown Boston in late March or downtown Melrose itself a few days ago.

Finding myself in a rather down mood over the past few days, I decided to go back and do some work on older photos in the hopes of occupying myself with something other than the news. The following pics are the first results.

As always, I hope you enjoy the photos. I also hope you, your friends and family are all healthy and safely at home. Take care.
