Archives for October 2011


They say that in 140 years of recorded history, there has not been more snow in the state of New Hampshire in the month of October. We took eight inches of snow, and while the phone company continues to deliver service in the face of every storm, the electric company is saying this will be […]


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
