Birches under a heavy sky

on
I’ve spent a lot of time photographing along the scenic Milford shoreline over the last 13 years that I’ve called the town home. Standalone feature photos for the paper require people in them, doing something of interest. I don’t pass on scenic/landscape photos, though, even though they don’t see print.

Swish!

on
On Tuesday, I spent my whole day, photographically, with basketball in one form or another. The first half of my day consisted of driving around looking for people enjoying a sunny, relatively warm winter afternoon. I found a group of young men playing basketball at a quiet Parloa Park in Bethel. The other half of […] [Read More]
