Playing With an IR Filter

“Oh no,” the readers cried out in unison. “Not another photography post!” Ah, yes, you’ll have so suffer, my children. This one will be fun, though. I picked up an infrared filter for my camera for $25 on Amazon, because it seems like a very cool toy. It’s not the easiest thing to play with, […]

Flowers, Damn It!

There’s an interesting thing about going to Florida in January. They have flowers. THEY HAVE FLOWERS! They don’t have 10 feet of snow plow residue at every street corner. Not once did I have to scrape ANYTHING off the rental car. It’s like this place was build so that I could pretend it was spring […]

Upon Photographing My Son

[I have a] fear of loss and my hatred of growing older and my tendency to hoard things, including memories. Every snapshot captures a moment, and when I look at it later, I remember the circumstances under which I took the photo.

Ice Forms

I really think I might like hiking if it didn’t involve cold temperatures and uneven terrain. I think that’s why I enjoy walking around the mall. It’s everything hiking should be, plus Auntie Anne’s Pretzels and fresh squoze lemonade. On the other hand, I went to Andre Sculpture Park up in Brookline NH and you […]

I don’t like to get up early on a Saturday. Ever since they started showing cartoons 7 days a week, there’s been no need to set the alarm.

Sunrise Through Fog

Phantom – Sitting Pretty

I chased my dog around the back yard, offering him cash, fame and dog treats if he would just let me take a few photos of him. He agreed to a dog treat with some people food to be named later.

Red and Yellow In Hollis

I stopped to buy some strawberries at Lull Farm in Hollis NH. I had been driving around looking for something interesting to photograph, and wasn’t having much luck, so the strawberries were my “cheer up” treat. I am glad I grabbed my camera out of the car, because not only do I have some “just picked” berries, I have a couple of pretty cool photos.
