Marblehead MA

A few weeks ago I went on a photo walk in Marblehead
with friends Kelly and Ken.  Here are some scenes from our day.






Portsmouth NH

One of my most favorite things to do on the weekend, not matter what the weather is,
is to go walk around different cities with friends and cameras in hand.
Last weekend, my friend Ken and I went to Portsmouth NH.  It was a bit
windy and cold, but we had fun and got some great photos.
Here are just a few of what a captured that day.

Occupy Boston

These photos are from Occupy Boston in Dewey Square last Saturday.
Today at Midnight, there is a court order for them to leave Dewey Square.




Boston's Reflections

Last Saturday I went into Boston with my friend Ken to do some Street Photography.
It had been so long since I have been to the city. I truly enjoyed all the action and aliveness that the city brings.Took lots of photos but some of my favorites were my window reflection shots.
I love the complexity of these.....






Tuesday evening, Beverly Hospital held a celebration to recognize John and Janet Keohane and Henry's Market in North Beverly for their continued generosity and support to Beverly Hospital and Northeast Health System. A Plaque at the Beverly Hospital Laboratory has also been erected and dedicated in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Swanson (Founders of Henry's Market).

I had the honor and pleasure of assisting in organizing this event and capturing lasting memories with my photography...did I tell you how much I love my full time Job and being a photographer??!! Please join me in celebrating the good work that John and Janet Keohane, and their family continue to do for our community.

Thanksgiving in Ohio

For the first time, in my 53 years, I was able to spend a holiday with my relatives in Ohio.
I flew out to Warren Ohio, via Akron/Canton Airport, on Monday, November 21 and returned on Friday, November 25.  This is the first time that I have flown alone, and i must say, I did ok. 




My cousins Brenda and John came to visit me at cousin Susie's house on Tuesday.

Today, I had a fun photo shoot with an amazing couple, Melissa and Brian.
Last December, my wedding partner, Joanne and I photographed Melissa and Brian's wedding.
Melissa has since became my hairdresser and my friend. We got together today, with their dog, Kota, 
to take Holiday Card photos....we had so much fun, we got the holiday card shots and much much more.
So fun to work with Melissa and Brian...looking forward to doing it again.

Soccer Tournament in Danvers

Today I went to see my friend's son, Andrew play in the All Stars Soccer tournament with the Beverly Team
in Danvers.  It was a nice day in the high 50's and I was going to go for a walk anyway,
 so I walked the 1.5 miles to the soccer field.
This is the Beverly Team, (Andrew is 3rd from the left with the red bag on his lap). 
These kids played hard and won 2 our of three games this morning. Congratulations!!!!
