Tonight I played with a macro lens, an off-camera strobe, and a candle. Light the candle, wait two minutes, blow it out, take two photos, and repeat as needed. I took a lot of shots, but this one was my favorite. I’d like to do this again, as I don’t feel like I got the […]

Spirit Day 2011

Spirit Day

  It’s Spirit Day (click to learn more), and in support of the LGBT community, many people wore purple shirts. Me, I can’t really wear purple. My skin gets an orange tint around too much purple… so I bought a tie instead. Why do we need to support the LGBT community? Are you Lesbian, Gay, […]

The Doctor’s Files


You’ve probably seen these before – the neat, orderly row of files at a doctor’s office. They always look so neat and orderly to me. I like visual patterns, especially when there’s a break in them, such as we see here with the case of the mysterious Mr. and Mrs. F7801.

Fair Ride, 2011


About a year ago, I posted a couple pictures of this ride. Today I took photos of the same ride, but after dark. I like how they turned out. These first two images are down by a fog machine, and the last is up high above. Once again, I didn’t ride. It’s called the “Freak […]

Dog in the Surf

Abigail runs in the ocean

We took Abigail to the beach a couple weeks ago to try ocean fetch, and she absolutely loved it. I was surprised at how warm the water was. After Labor Day, you just don’t see people jumping in the ocean in New England. Still, I walked in the low waters, and it felt good.



This photo was shot through a glass window. The moth landed on the glass, and didn’t seem to mind how close I was getting with my big macro lens. EDIT: Found this video and thought it worth sharing. Check it out!



These artist’s mannequins hang out in this window all the time. The light was going through its twice a day magic period, and I had to crack open the window and grab a shot. Outside, it’s approaching dusk. Inside, lit by a single incandescent bulb (there are still a few of those left in my house – […]


This image brought to you by Shel Silverstein (who also inspired this photo). Pancakes Who wants a pancake, Sweet and piping hot? Good little Grace looks up and says, “I’ll take the one on top.” Who else wants a pancake, Fresh off the griddle? Terrible Teresa smiles and says, “I’ll take the one in the […]

Blue Skies

Blue Skies

This photo is all about negative space. I think the shapes in between the steel are more interesting than the structure itself.



I’m not one of these guys that will go out with a squirt bottle to add little drops of water to flowers before I take their pictures… but when it rained a couple weeks ago, I went looking for interesting things to shoot, and I liked the way the water was dripping from the hydrangeas […]
