A few additional shots I worked on today. Two of the pictures were taken today (2/6/16) around sunset in a remote part of Stoneham, Mass. That was the fun part. The not-so fun part was getting lost in the woods after it got dark. It was a good hour of hiking and what not, but next time I will stay on the beaten path. 😉
Recently, two things happened that had not occurred in quite some time. The first was that the New England area actually got some honest to goodness winter weather. The first batch was up in Maine a week ago (the first four pics are from Old Orchard Beach) and then, the Boston area received about seven or eight inches of snow today (2/5/16). Since I had Friday off both last week and this week, there was only one thing to do: get out and take some photographs!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
Hello again! My apologies for the very lengthy leave of absence from the blog. Summer got busy in a big way with a new job, a few big photo gigs and continued work on my upcoming photo book On a Winter’s Day (due in November). I have a backlog of pics to share with you, which I will be doing…well…now!
Hope all is well on your end of the world and that you are out there taking as many photos as possible.
This past Thursday afternoon, approximately one hundred people took to the streets of Boston to protest the lack of indictments for two high-profile police killings in Ferguson, Missouri and New York City. The crowd was largely young college-age students, but there were also a smattering of adults as well. The crowd marched down Tremont Street en route to heading up to the Massachusetts State House on Beacon Street. The demonstration lasted approximately 30-40 minutes and for a short period of time blocked the traffic on Beacon Street. Boston Police were present for the peaceful march and demonstration at the State House.
