Water at Drinkwater’s: H20 Extremes Exhibit

I’m pleased to announce my upcoming exhibit, “H20 Extremes.” The show juxtaposes images devoid of water—such as those taken in Death Valley—with photographs that feature water in abundance. The latter include images of the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon in Iceland and, much closer to home, close up shots of raindrops collecting on spider web filaments and…

Gear Note: Back Saver, File Saver

MINDSHIFT GEAR CAMERA BACKPACKI rarely write much about camera gear, but I’m particularly excited about two photography products I used during my trip to Death Valley in February. Both helped make the adventure especially enjoyable and productive. (Note: neither of the items were provided for review by their respective manufacturers.) First, there’s the MindShift Gear…

Sun, Sand, and Solitude

This month marked another annual father/son sojourn of sun, sand, and solitude. Our 2018 trip took us far from winter’s gloomy cold grip on the Northeast to a place with blazing sun and delicious 80-degree temperatures: the desert. My son Noah and I traveled from Las Vegas to Death Valley National Park, then made our…

Matters of Scale: A Photo Exhibition

For me, nothing is quite as gratifying as seeing my photographic work framed, matted, and on display for the world to see. Recently, I‘ve had the opportunity to do this with 14 images from my portfolio. They’re hanging on the walls of Simon’s—a cozy little café in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The exhibition is called “Matters of…

A Chilly Goodbye to 2017

If 2018 were the year of the Dragon, not the year of the Dog, I’d be especially excited about the image below. To my eye, anyway, the subject of the photo resembles a fanciful beast. From right to left, see the head, body, and tail? ICE + ZEISS = NICE!The “dragon” photo is actually a…

Let It Snow! (in New York City)

There’s nothing like wind-driven snow to create intriguing photo opportunities in New York. Last weekend’s storm, which coincided with a brief family visit to the City, did not disappoint. (It also gave me a great chance to test the mettle of my weather-resistant Fuji XT2 body and lenses.) I spent most of the morning on…

Fall Roundup

For those of you who’ve been reading my blogs, you’ve heard me say that no matter where you live, there’s no shortage of fascinating subjects and compositions. Sometimes they’re literally in our backyards; other times they’re just down the road. The key to finding them is to be receptive and observant. This fall has not…

Spider Webs. Not Just for Halloween

Spider webs are pretty amazing structures from an engineering standpoint. The silk strands nearly rival steel in terms of tensile strength (roughly defined as the greatest amout of stretching that a material can undergo without breaking). The silk is also highly elastic, enabling the webs to withstand all manner of forces. No wonder material scientists…

HONK! Round 12

There’s lots to look forward to in October in my neck of the woods—fall foliage kicks in, the temperature and humidity drop (eventually), and then there’s the annual Somerville [Massachusetts] Honk! Festival. Now in its 12th year, the festival was founded by an activist band to promote peace, social justice, and civic engagement. Since its…

Boothbay Harbor, Maine: Fog, Sun, and Then Some

Earlier in the spring during a trip to Boothbay Harbor, Maine, I was enthralled with the fog surrounding the docks near the center of town. I discovered that fog presents unique photographic challenges and was hopeful that a second planned trip to Maine (this time for a wedding) would provide more opportunities to apply what…
