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).
I am happy to announce that my fourth book of photography, Here, There and Elsewhere, is now available for purchase on Blurb.com! A collection of photos taken over the past few years, Here, There and Elsewhere is my most ambitious book to date, one I hope you will enjoy. To order the book, or simply check out a preview of it, click here.
An eBook edition of Here, There and Elsewhere is currently in production and should be available by the end of November.
Labor Day weekend is the unofficial conclusion to the summer season. Of course, when the five-day forecast promises yet another heat wave with temps near 100 on at least one of those days, it’s hard to get excited just yet about leaves changing color, NFL football starting or the infiltration of pumpkin…everything. Still, I will use the holiday weekend as a chance to share some of the pics I have taken during the sweltering month of August. I hope you enjoy them and do so in some sort of air-conditioned comfort. Well, unless you’re looking at them in the wintertime. Then I hope they warm you up a bit.
What better way to start the New Year than with the first Supermoon of 2018, which appeared over the horizon in Marblehead, MA just after 4:30 this afternoon. It was a remarkably chilly night to witness the event – the temperature on my phone stated it was about five degrees out-, but the sight made it well worth it.
