Worcester

Worcester, Massachusetts- my home – is not generally considered a pretty city.  I work in the city center, and every day I look across the street to city hall and the surrounding buildings and park.   And from my window it is difficult to see past the mundane office buildings, run down convenience stores, constant construction, and crowds. So when my friend Andy suggested we go downtown and try some street photography this weekend, I didn’t have very high hopes.  At first, I just sort of wandered aimlessly around and took some uninspired pictures of the outsides of buildings.  But then I actually started to really look around me and I realized I haven’t been doing my city justice.  Yes, Worcester is gritty and industrial and still a little down on its luck.  But it is also full of strange beauty.  So I am going to work harder to actually see what is around me from now on instead of walking past it with my head down.

Did a photo shoot in a gale this weekend. Before and during it I may have thought I was crazy, but I actually love a lot of the resulting images. Here’s  preview!

Kelsea – Part 2

Yesterday I posted Part 1 of a photo shoot I did with my beautiful cousin Kelsea a few weeks ago.  Today, as I was looking back over the inaugural posts on this blog and thinking about posting Part 2, I was struck by one thing in particular.   I am really lucky to have the friends and family that I do.  Take Kelsea, for example. She is lovely, kind, fun, and she is always willing to revert to childhood for an afternoon to play dress-up and run around our old stomping ground with me.  She also wears the hell out of an oversized plaid jacket. So, without any more delay, here is Part 2!

The farm animals were clearly very confused about what was happening. Frankly, I can’t blame them.

Kelsea- Part 1

Happy 2014 to you all! 2013 was an eventful year on my end.  I went to Australia for 4 months, started a new job, and got engaged to name a few things.  2013 was also the year that my cousin and best friend got married and moved to California.  Although I am very happy and excited for her, I won’t lie – going from living with her to not seeing her for nearly a year was pretty difficult. So I was thrilled when she told me she was coming back to Massachusetts for a few weeks around Thanksgiving. We had a lovely visit which included some time to do a photo shoot at our Aunt and Uncle’s farm.  It was one of the coldest days of the year, but Kelsea bravely donned some absolutely ridiculous clothing and ran around the fields and the backyard with me anyway.
