Ipswich River Wilflife Preserve

Posted on Jan 15, 2013 in Blog, Projects

Spent the last two days exploring my old stomping grounds, the Ipswich River Willdlife Preserve.

The Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, which is the Massachusetts Audubon Society’s largest wildlife sanctuary, is located in Topsfield and Wenham, Massachusetts. Much of its 2,800-acre (11 km2) landscape was created by a glacier 15,000 years ago. The park’s more than ten miles (16 km) of interconnected trails wind through forests, meadows, and swamps, vernal pools, drumlins, and eskers. The sanctuary’s Rockery Trail runs beside large rocks, exotic trees, and shrubs that belonged to an arboretum at Bradstreet Farm, parts of which were donated by owner Thomas Emerson Proctor. The Ipswich River runs for eight miles (13 km) through the sanctuary, and Mass Audubon makes canoes available for members to rent. The Sanctuary also offers summer camps and various nature programs for children and adults.

Trees, Light & Flight: The Art of the Self Portrait

Posted on Jun 11, 2012 in Projects

Funny story about this image; Brought 30 pounds of lighting and stands a mile away….when arrived noticed that I had left the bracket that clips the flash to the light stand at my house…..Didn’t get flustered, walked around the woods furiously and saw this little patch of light and decided to sit.  Worked out better that way I guess because I got some interesting results “finding” the light.

Sometimes when you have no people to photograph, you can make an intriguing image for yourself….or a few.  Enjoy the pics; more to come soon! Including free print giveaways. Stay tuned

Went for a Walk – Powerlines & Parks

Posted on Apr 2, 2012 in Inspiration

I know I am drawing close to my end in Massachusetts for a while, so I have been going on short walks to document the area I grew up in (well at least the part no one sees)

Here are the photos from a walk I took yesterday through Boxford and Topsfield.
