I had an unconventional New Years this year. I had the opportunity to shoot in Washington D.C. during the week leading up to New Year’s eve, and found myself free to explore on my own terms on the day of New Years Eve. I hadn’t yet seen the Arlington National Cemetery, and the morning was shaping up to be a breathtaking scene. Thanks to all the moving pieces along this trip lining up perfectly, I spent the last day of 2013 paying my respects to the Heroes of my country, and remembering the sacrifice of all of my friends and …
When I first saw this tagline in an ad for visiting Montreal, I giggled to myself. We all know that New York is the city that never sleeps, right? Well it seems doubly true in Montreal. Despite freezing temperatures in the single digits (F), and a sunset at 3pm (!), no matter how late nor how early we went out, there was always something going on.
Good morning! If you’re a little confused at what’s going on, check out my post from Day 1. After a few late night runs, our van switched off with van 1 and got about 4 hours of shut eye. Before we jump back into the race, we all really needed some deep stretching… Thank you to my team who made this race amazing, and the volunteers and entire organization behind Reach The Beach New Hampshire who worked tirelessly to keep us safe and on course!
This weekend I ran in the New Hampshire Reach the Beach Relay; a 200-mile relay race from Cannon Mountain to Hampton Beach, across the state of NH. I was one of 12 runners on my team, and we completed the 30-hour race by handing off a reflective snap-it bracelet to transition between runners. Each team has two vans, housing 6 runners (and in our case a non-running driver) for the two days it takes to complete the race. We ate, slept, and got entirely too ridiculous in our vans. Every year this race brings people from all over New England, …
For some mysterious reason my brain would not let me sleep last night. Every time I sure I was drifting off, a new gear started turning and I had to look something up, jot something down, or, worst of all, pull out a photo because of a editing idea that just couldn’t wait for fear I’d forget it. The silver lining here is that this morning I got to experience something I have not yet seen in my very own backyard: this brilliant pink sunrise.
This was a pretty challenging trip for me photographically, because we only had access to the dunes during the middle of the day, with a bright sunny sky. The weather was beautiful for enjoying the cape, but left something to be desired for my camera. I just wanted…. drama! Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself, we’ll get back to that later 😉
A couple of weeks ago I found myself on a beach in Provincetown with a beautiful girl at twilight. You know what? Let me just show you:
I’m still not sure how to react to the events at the Boston Marathon on Monday. As a runner and photographer, I have been counting the months, weeks, and days until this race. I woke up early Monday morning to watch the live coverage until I could get downtown, and as soon as I made it to Boston I headed straight for the highlight of the race: the finish line! The crowds were astounding, I’ve never experienced gridlock on a sidewalk before, but the cheering and enthusiasm gave a sense of being at a huge party. I brought along a …
A few weeks ago an image of a pair of ice climbers on the NH State Parks facebook page grabbed my attention, and I just couldn’t stop thinking about all of that ice. At the first chance I got, I packed up my gear and headed out to Franconia Notch.
Winter has made Boston dark and gloomy for the past few months, and is it just me or does it also make all of the litter multiply? Maybe it’s just more noticeable the drearier it gets. Last week we finally got a bit of fantastic light. I had to do a little sun chasing, but for the first time since moving to Boston, I knew exactly where in the city I needed to be.
