From Littleton to Lille–8-31-2018

The biggest problem I face is the crowds!  Weekends are impossible to go anywhere, cars are lines along the highway for miles.  And the days are growing shorter, so short hops to places are best!

Every single trail head was PACKED today!  so, instead I found the quiet places.  I guess I will be hiking after work.  !

And there are the keys!  They make a good prop – 8 for the # of assignments and 3 for the # of years I’ve been a PTA. 

I’m working on using my ND filters, so I’m not quite there yet!  Waterfalls here we go later this week!

A wicked cool metal works place in Bethlehem, NH. 

Drive to New Hampshire

Leaving home isn’t ever easy.  I have the advantage of having a wicked wife.  I also enjoy stopping, stretching my legs and taking a few pics.

The drive:

I was on a mission, I wanted some keys..I needed 11 old keys.  8 for the # of assignments and 3 for the number of years I’ve been a PTA… I thought it would make a great prop for photos!

This is how I ended the day.  I unpacked and set up my two keep sakes from home.

Supergirl to remind me I can do anything I set my mind too.  And that Jules loves me to the moon and back and supports me in all that I do.

This, however, how my day began.

Before this I’ve never taken a night photo.  I didn’t have tripod.  I had no clue about the settings.  I winged it!

08-02-2018–Former church of Notre-Dame du Mont-Carmel

I finally hiked (1000 feet) over to the Musee that was a former church up my road.  I’ve taken many pictures of the place before and do like getting some inside pics ever few years.

Backyard Perspectives–7-27-2018

Backyard can be fun.  I tend to shoot back there often, since I’ve land and several different perspectives.

I love that I have a potato field to one side, the view of the church on the other, the river just beyond that and the RR Tracks.
