Misty Morning at Beaver Lake

I stopped at Beaver Lake one recent foggy morning to take some photos. Here are a few  of my favorites.

Street View

A little on the abstract side, this net of colorful shapes was found over a street in down-town Boston.


Regular readers know we keep chickens. When we get a backlog of eggs, it’s time to make a large scramble. This photo was taken right before the whisk was applied. Like this image? It’s available for sale here.

Hammer and Nails

A photo of a vase I encountered on a family vacation, and its contents’ shadows.

Last time when I tried to photograph it, I didn’t have as nice of a camera, and in the soft light, the image turned out blurry because I couldn’t hold the camera still enough. This time, I’m much happier with the results.
