This is a local field at Brookdale Fruit Farm in Hollis, NH. I liked how the mulch created a contrast and was blessed with a really nice sky.
Pickety Place is a restaurant and shop over in Mason, NH that specializes in food and other things made and flavored with herbs. In summer, their gardens bloom, but snow brings a certain charm also.
Last week, I posted the easiest image I’ve recently made; it was a cardinal and I made the image from our living room. This is a close runner up. I was driving home at sunset and saw the sun setting over the orchard in Hollis. I parked on a side street and walked in to make this and a few other shots that I will be sure to share.
My break from school ends on Monday. Over the past four weeks, I’ve tried to get out on a variety of shoots to get a bank of photos to choose from over the upcoming weeks. It’s difficult to get out to make photos when I’m taking classes. Some shoots were successful and others not so much. I wanted to go to a living history museum this weekend for photos in the snow, but a warm rain storm put an end to those plans. On the other hand, a trip to southern Maine during a warm spell last week provided me with a ton of images.
This was the easiest image to make. I took it in my stocking feet from our living room during a storm. The poor cardinal did not have it so easy, but he left our yard well fed.
I’m pleased to announce that seven of the images I made while in El Salvador were selected by New England Art Reach to be part of an exhibition at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Nashua, NH from now through June. While I’ve taken part in some art shows that run one to three days, this is my first ever exhibition. I am one of five artists to have their work shown over the next six months. New England Art Reach arranges art for a number of hospitals in the area. Having gallery space in hospitals is a common practice in this area. It is typically displayed in atriums and central passageways.
The past couple of days, I’ve posted images of some gorgeous Christmas lights in Boston. Today, I show you our little lights. This is the first year we’ve ever had lights outside. We bought two string of white lights and wrapped them around the split rail fence around the side flower garden. After running outside to plug them in at sunset and unplug them before bed, I splurged and purchased a device to do the turning on and off for me…a wise investment.
Monday brought our fist bit of snow that stuck and made the world look so pretty. I was not able to get out that day, but did go out on Tuesday and made these images on my local hiking trails. It’s getting a bit colder, but we just have to remind ourselves that is what happens around now and pull out our sweaters and warm gloves. And now that the semester has ended, I can say/sing:
Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
For those of you who mistook the title thinking this would be a Game of Thrones post, here is something for you…the other kind of Snow
