Another year comes to a close. It's only natural to look back at my photographic efforts of the last twelve months. My focus here will be on my successes. Those rare instances when I get it right - in my opinion, of course. This past year was a busy one with lots of travel. A late summer trip to Europe, winter in Key West, Florida and three trips to the Maine Coast. Mix in several trips to other New England...

Favorite 2017 Photos

Posted by
Like countless others on the internet its time for me to pick my personal favorite 2017  images.  Thousands of photos spanning all four seasons with one simple goal - to find my favorite photos.  The criteria for selection is simple, it has to be one of my favorites.   Picking a personal favorite can happen a number of ways, a fond memory of the excursion or location.  An image need not be perfect (or even good) for inclusion.   Even technical problems or a...

Early Winter in Vermont.  A cold snowy day is a perfect day to stay indoors and enjoy a good book.  In Woodstock Vermont, there is an old/used/rare bookstore housed in an old barn.  On a day like this, the tight confines and aroma of old parchment have a special warmth.  What I liked about this weeks' selection is the warm light coming from the windows.  It shows a warmth in a very cold image.   Read more
