After having photographed them on Tuesday evening, I went back Thursday morning at daybreak in hopes of making images featuring the sculptures along with color at the edge of the day. It seemed … Continued

Farewell, Feathered Friends

|

Every spring, we’re visited by little feathered friends who take residence in the birdhouse on our deck. They are a welcome addition. Their songs fill the house. When their young arrive, the chorus of chirps – especially enthusiastic when food is delivered to the nest – can be heard throughout the day. The parents are … Continued

Castles in the Sand

There are sand castles, and then there are sand sculptures.

Lupines

Nubble Light

Matthew Freeman Project

I came across this post today: Lisa Freeman’s son, Matthew, never came back from his Marine service in Afghanistan. Rather than let her grief own her, she’s channeled it into a remarkable project called The Mathew Freeman Project. She transforms the uniforms of fallen soldiers into lovable, cuddly bears for their children and family. Her … Continued
