Guest Post: Photographing Pillsbury State Park

I’m so excited to finally be able to tell you guys about my trip to Pillsbury State Park, NH! You may remember my post on Pawtuckaway State Park at the end of last year. After seeing that post, the guys over at NH Parks and Rec asked me if I would continue to photograph their beautiful trials; and of course I said yes. It took a few attempts for me to adjust to the demands of winter hiking, but once I got out on this trail, it was immediately obvious that all of my preparation was worth it. [quote]When I made …

Witch Ride 2012

This is a post from last Halloween that I never had the chance to put up. One day shortly before Halloween I was coming home when I heard the most overwhelming roar coming toward me. Knowing that Boston isn’t an earthquake hotspot, I quickly glanced around to see what was going on. I noticed baricades and police lining the streets, and asked an officer to fill me in.

[Part 1] Ringing in the New Year, 2013

New Year’s eve in Boston brought on an evening of horns, drums, hot chocolate, mittens, and people flooding the streets for First Night. First Night is the city’s annual celebration which features an ice sculptuing contest, a parade, and concludes with an amazing firework show over the Boston Common. Because there was so much going on, I’ve split this post into parts. Here’s part one, starting at the begining with the parade

End of the Year Hike: Pawtuckaway State Park NH

John and I have been itching to get out of the city, so to celebrate new friends and a new home our neighbors Meg and Paul joined us on a Christmas mountain hike in New Hampshire’s Pawtuckaway State Park. This trail turned out to be breathtaking. And after 6 miles (round trip), 700 feet of elevation gain, lots of stopping for photographs and 5 hours with friends, I’d call it a good day

It’s Snowing!

Yes, I am interrupting your regularly scheduling LOL cat web surfing for this announcement. We’ve had a few little snows, but nothing that’s stuck to the ground so far. And yes, we did have a little Christmas snow… but c’mon, check this beauty out! I just couldn’t hold in my enthusiasm! I think tomorrow will bring y’all some great wintery photography!
