Kancamagus Highway–10-03-2018

I had happy feet one night and Wendy (I’m blaming her again, yes!) had spoken about the Kancamagus – and so off I went!

I did a bunch of “five minute photo stops”. 

And here are the results!

After Work Drive–9-27-2018

Some days I get out early.  Some days far later.  On this day: early.  I sent out to just “take some pictures.”  Most were 5-10 mins photo stops.  Here we go!

The beauty of this area is there is always something to take pictures of. Old buildings, or stone walls, or wicked reflections, or… flowing water….

I drove around towards Crawford Notch. Stop on here and there for more pictures. Caught the sun off some mountains.

Then I made a stop at Silver Cascade (I think that’s the name!) and made a quick jaunt up that, and again, more flowing water!  Then on the way home, I found Fourth Iron camping grounds and stop there before I lost the light.

New York, New York–9-22-2018

Roughly about a month ago, my friend, Melissa messaged me with a link.  It was Dax Shepard in NYC.  After a quick message to Julia, asking if it was okay and I could afford it, I said YES!  (This is why we are still married, we ask the little things). 

Mel booked everything (she’s a pro now!) and boom!  I worked the previous Sunday, I drove over to her place on Thursday and off we went!

I could never, ever live here. I could, however, visit! I’m not an urban photographer. I hope I did it justice! Thursday we both started throwing out “things we wanted to do”. Honestly, we knew we could do 2 things, one in the AM and then one in the early PM (with lunch). We tossed out a few ideas, but both that stuck was the 9/11 Memorial. And the other, Little Italy.

The 9/11 Memorial is a wonder in structure, as well as something else – somber and thought provoking, it’s one of those places that brings you back to that day – which is the point. Seeing the names and the pictures is – surreal. I’ve a close friend who was flying out of NYC that very day, and I remember the worry if that was her flight, was she okay. I cannot even imagine knowing a loved one was IN those buildings. I had the stroke of luck to meet Shannon Stapleton in Stongington, ME, last year. He and I talked photography and all the time we spoke, his name rang a bell. It ran a bell because he was a “witness” to what had happened. Before he and I parted ways that night, I asked him, he’s a photographer for Reuters, why his name was familiar. His face changed just slightly, that haunting in his eyes appeared and he said “I was at 9/11, I took pictures when it happened.”. I saw his name on the witness plague that day. The world IS a far smaller place than we imagine.

My key series made it’s way to NYC! I think it is one of my fave pictures to date.

Afterwards! We made our way to Little Italy! And low and behold, there was a street fest going on. From Ferrara’s Pastries to having a wickedly good lunch at Lunetta’s, and walking through the throng of the crowd.

Can we talk about the crowds? Or the building? It’s all wicked!  We had a blast and would do it again!

The Dells–9-19-2018

My coworker, Wendy (Hi Wendy!) keeps giving me some after work suggestions which is great! Today it was The Dells, a series of small tails, literally in the middle of town.

Diana’s Bath–9-13-2018

Another after work adventure!  I had a week of short hours, just low pt load to be honest.  So instead of going home and vegging out, I hit up a few of the places that are packed on weekends.

The drive there was gorgeous!  I stopped into a few places and did a five min photo stop.  Where I take as many pics in five mins as I can.

The Bath is really pretty, the water is clear, as much in NH is, and a wonderful smell of clean for some reason struck me.

The sun was great for taking photos of my keys for my key series here!  Many places because of being on a gorge, etc, it’s a struggle or at least a challenge.

I had to stop, the clouds in the 1st pic are outrageous!

Mount Washington, NH–9-8-2018

Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.

The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture.  So, that’s why the keys!  and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.

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!
