Sunrise Through Fog

I like my commute to New Hampshire (when I work out of that office). There is nothing more typically new England than that commute. This week, I had a couple of great days, with bright sunshine, and peak foliage. That’s when I really appreciate where I live. There was fog one of the two days, and I got this photo from the Stillman Dairy Farm parking lot in Lunenburg MA. (I’d have gone in to buy something, you know, because I was walking around the edge of their parking lot, but I didn’t want to drive a quart of milk up to work.)

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.

Photo – Verbena

Sometimes, you have to make your own sunshine. Or just fake yourself out by zooming in on something sun-colored.

Gerani-omes

Playing with the Hipstamatic app on the iPhone. I kind of lost the energy to take and process photos, but I’m trying to be better. To get myself “excited” about the process I bought the app and will try to take enough photos that I find some to upload to the flickr feed on a more regular basis. I will say the idea of no processing (outside of what the app does) is appealing to my lazy self. Plus the instant gratification of uploading to flickr right from the iPhone if I get something I like.

This is the new background on my phone.

Why You Should Always Carry a Camera

You never know when you’ll spot something worth photographing. Or maybe you’ll need to use the camera as a weapon to fight off wolverines. But I think it was be better to use it to take photos.

I had to go pick up my son at his friend’s, and passed this view.

To Serve and Protect

It’s a lovely day. Lots of rain. Not much going on. The dog is armed, and dangerous. If you come in my back yard and are of the squirrel persuasion, you are dead meat, my friend.

Why I’ll Be Glad When Winter’s Over

My dog has hair, not fur, and snow clumps on him. Every time he goes out we have to towel him off. He goes out a LOT. as in, every time he sees a bird, squirrel, leaf…

Heavy Sticky Snow Day

Heavy Sticky Snow Day, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck.

As much as I enjoy getting the 6am “there’s no school today” phone call, this one was horrible to clean up. 1 hour to clean the driveway WITH the snowblower. Why yes, there are days that I regret not buying a truck with a plow, why do you ask?
