I am pleased to announce the start of work on my fifth book of photography, Archives.
Archives is a collection of pictures old and new, many that have been previewed here on my blog over the past few months. Archives will be available in three editions: hardcover, softcover and eBook.
I am also happy to announce that 100% of the proceeds from sales of the eBook edition of Archives will go directly to Special Olympics. I don’t need to tell you how important a program like the Special Olympics is to so many people out there. I will also spare you any political grandstanding regarding the proposed $17.1 million cuts in funding.
What I will do, however, is ask you to join me in helping the program out. Your purchase will help a program that has benefitted so many individuals in its 50 years of existence. Your donation will allow that greatness to continue.
Further details on the book’s release will be forthcoming shortly. As always, thank you for stopping by!
Following a late afternoon appointment in Danvers, I zipped on over to the Marblehead area to grab some pics of the Super Snow Moon that was due to rise a little after 5:30pm. With little to no commuter traffic to contend with thanks to school vacation week, I was in the area with a little time to kill. First stop was Devereux Beach. The beach was deserted, which was perfect to get a few interesting shots of a closed down beach blanketed with snow.
The main destination for the early evening, Marblehead Light, had a few folks awaiting the arrival of the Super Snow Moon, but not the usual amount that visit the spot during both warmer times of the year or during other Super Moon appearances.
A few pics below were experiments of sorts, playing around with shapes, shadows, light and color. As with my photos from the week before taken at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, I wanted to combine these elements to help convey feelings of isolation and, often, tranquility that a cold winter’s day in New England can bring. I also threw in another photo of the Super Snow Moon for good measure (it was well worth freezing one’s butt off for).
