I currently have two images on exhibit in the Newport Public Library which were taken during our summer photo walks. The photo of the MGTD was taken near the Jane Picken’s Theater in Newport and the Wickford Harbor shot was taken in Wickford.
Additionally I have two works in the Newport Art Museum Photo Guild Exhibit at the Museum starting September 29. The image of the Nauset Light in Fog and the Misty Fjords taken in Ketchikan Alaska. I hope you can view these works in person.
On our second day in Anchorage my granddaughter Livvie wanted to go horseback riding. I had never been on a horse in my sixty plus years and my wife had not been riding in years. I probably caused this request when I talked about my trip to Flattop Mountain in Chugach State Park and seeing the horses trail riding. Denise went on line and contacted Megan Scott at Painted Mustangs. Megan agreed to take us out in the Park the next afternoon . We arrived at the Park and were greeted by Megan and her sister leading our mounts. I was assigned to K and Megan was very patient as was K as I attempted to mount the horse. After a few attempts I managed to get into the saddle. Denise and Livvie got mounted and off we went onto the trails of Chugach. The views were spectacular and after a short period of instruction I became very comfortable with my horse. We had a great two and half hour trail ride up the mountain and then back down. It was a great experience and all of us agreed that it was one of the highlights of our trip. I can hardly wait to try riding again. Here are some of the images I captured and one that Megan took of our group. Megan can be contacted at Painted Mustangs.com.
Today, Easter Sunday, was the Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Skylands Homestead in Cumberland. My wife, Denise; and daughter, Kellie, filled several dozen colored egss with candy, toys, and money. They then hid them all over the fields. The grandkids Kellie and Cole, and the neighbor boys Braedan, Jordan and Matthew had a great time seeking out the eggs and chasing each other around. Here are the results.
I travelled to Fall River to photograph the re-painted Braga Bridge. It was a quiet night but the sunset was colorful.[
I have been on vacation this week and have been traveling the State photographing various Mills. The horse that is included was grazing next to my parked car when I was photographing the Jamestown Windmill so I included his image. Hopefully you will enjoy the images.
Visited the Occupy Providence encampment at Burnside Park this afternoon. It is a curious mix of homeless people, students, and professional protesters. I shot some images of the camp and the signs that encircled the park. It was a very interesting experience.
Sunday afternoon I took a trip to Milford, CT. to visit some of my old stomping grounds growing up. I also worked as a Milford Police Officer before I went to the Hartford Department.
So much has changed and most of it for the better. Here are some of the images I took.
I spent Saturday afternoon watching the dry harvesting at Edgewood Bogs. It is an amazing process. The field workers pushing the harvesting machines, the other workers stacking the burlap bags of berries, and emptying the bags into stacked crates. A helicopter was used to lift the loaded crates on to the back of the flatbed trucks. It was a great afternoon. I would like to thank Cindy at Edgewood Bogs for allowing me to photograph and getting me to the right area. I would also like to thank my friend Bobby Collum for connecting me up with Cindy and making my wish happen.
I spent Saturday Afternoon at the annual Cranberry Harvest Celebration at Makepeace Farm in Wareham, MA. It was a glorious day, I am still struggling with my endurance so I was pretty wiped out by the time we left. It was a great event and a great day.
Travelled to Provincetown on Saturday to see if I could create some more summer images.
I was supposed to go last weekend, but was interrupted by my hospitalization for Lyme Disease.
Feeling better, but still have a problem with stamina. I went on Saturday so that I could rest on Sunday. Took some great shots and created some great images. It was well worth the effort.
