Sarah and Andrew Portrait in the Studio

My nephew Andrew recently announced his engagement to his long time friend and partner Sarah and I offered a portrait session for them at my studio.

It was a pleasure having them there and it provided me an opportunity to play with some lighting and a few black and white actions I wanted to use.

Looking forward to their wedding plans.

Road Trip Brattleboro VT

Last weekend I took a little road trip to Brattleboro VT for dinner and a tour of their downtown area.

If you haven’t been to Brattleboro in a while things have changed. It had been at least 30 years for me.

It reminded me of Portland Oregon with it’s quirky look and feel.

First stop was a quick coffee at Mocha Joe’s then a stroll down Main Street.

When you are there check out the classic white New England Centre Congregational Church, Brooks House and the art deco Latchis Hotel.

For the arts I spent a little time at the Vermont Center for Photography Gallery and met with Greg Worden at the Vermont Artisan Designs.

We ended our visit with dinner at Peter Havens Restaurant with chef and owner Zack Corbin a second cousin to my wife Janet.

Dinner was excellent with mussels, salad and a delicious ginger glazed pork chop. I plan a trip back in the spring.

Happy Halloween 2017

ValleyCemetary1ValleyCemetary2

Out yesterday documenting powerline damage for the local utilities I came across the Valley Cemetery in Londonderry NH for some Halloween views.

Established in 1793 it is one of the town’s earliest burial sites.

I caught the sunlight just as it was setting and enhanced some views with a few Photoshop actions.

If it hasn’t been postponed due to the outages don’t forget the little trick or treaters tonight.

Rosie the Rocketeer

Artist Bruce Wood of the Glass Ingot allowed me to photograph one of his prized works of art “Rosie” this past summer.

I loved the use of recycled items to produce a  jet pack and all the accouterments for a beautiful Steampunk Rocketeer.

Bruce recently said on his Facebook site “My sculpture “Rosie the Rocketeer” will be in an essay for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming exhibition catalog”.

Postcard Moab Utah

MoabUtah1MoabUtah2

My trip out west continued with a road trip to Moab Utah.

Lots of re-purposed artwork and articles throughout the town and a strong biking and hiking theme.

We ventured out early for a hike to Arches National Park. After about an hours hike Janet and I were rewarded with an early morning view of Delicate Arch.

Later that night we took a boat trip at sunset on the Colorado River with Canyonlands by Night Tour. As the sun sets lights are thrown onto the rock faces with a recorded music and historical narrator giving us a little local history.

Postcard Park City Utah

PostcardUtah1PostcardUtah2PostcardUtah3

Taking some time off the past few weeks and enjoying a family wedding in Park City Utah.

My niece Courtney and her husband Brandon celebrated their nuptials at the Red Cliff Ranch with a perfect evening for dancing and smores by the fire.  It was great to be and see our west coast family again.

Lots of fun seeing the view from Deer Valley and enjoying hikes, sunsets, a street festival on Main Street Park City and the local cuisine.  Janet and I finished our visit off with the Solar Eclipse of the Sun just as we headed our way to Moab Utah. Move to come on that.
