Callie stayed in this box for a LONG time while I was taking pictures of her.

Ninja dressed as a boxer with his leg bitten of by an alligator. I don't know who created this one. I suspect it was Dustin.

Back with Fifty Eight!

Once again, I apologize for photo irregularity. These things happen. I am back with an artistic masterpiece. Not the photo, but rather, the subject of the photo.

This guy started as a ninja-bread cookie, but upon realizing that ninja-shaped gingerbread cookies look just like hockey goalies, Greg repurposed him.

Another hockey one. This one is incredibly blurred, and the frame is terrible, but I still love the photo. This is a perfect example of the lack of defense Greg gets while playing for Dead River. For the record he blocked whatever shot/shots came from this scenario. Although, I think the frame shows that I was a little nervous about what was going to come of this one...

fifty six

I can't claim that today's photo is spectacular by any means. I am trying to figure out how to take good hockey pictures which is extremely challening, considering I want a very fast shutter speed, but I also need to let a lot of light in. This is actually from the second or third batch of hockey attempts. I think they are getting better, but I still have a lot of room for improvement.

Mostly I just love this photo because the goalie's feet are both off the ground.

So it turns out, I spent the weekend in Boston and this was the only thing I managed to take a photo of, aside from a few shots of Roton. I really like how this dead plant looks though.

Tuesday, December 7, 2010


Back again after a short delay.

This weekend I was in Boston, and got to visit with Roton (along with others)!

In the interest of not skipping a day I am adding this photo that Greg took of the hickory nut pie we made for Thanksgiving. soooo delicious.

Forty Nine

And to end the fluffy things sequence, I call this photo:
"Are these things edible?"

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Forty Eight

Finally! My earlier photos of these fluffy things were lacking in proper white balance. Before they were looking grey and off-color. I fixed it though, as you can tell from the nice golden colors in this photo.

Forty Seven

I like this photo because it is almost like abstract art, instead of some fluffy things I saw growing by the side of the road. With the low sun, the fluffy things seemed to have a halo around them, and this picture most closely captures that effect.

Friday, November 26, 2010


This one is nearly my favorite of the batch. I certainly like the frame best, but there is one more thing I wish I had changed, stay tuned for two more photos to find out what.

44: all manual, all the time

Welcome to the theme of my next few photos:

I've seen these big fluffy things in several areas, and when I saw this large grouping I had to go back and take some photos. I am also trying to avoid the pre-set modes on my camera, because I'm thinking the best way to learn is to just jump in and start going all manual, all the time.

Here is a picture of some blocks of cheese that were made at the Sugarbush Farm in VT.

Thirty nine

Another view of the same covered bridge. This is a particularly good covered bridge.

Long delay, but here is 38!

Sorry for the half-month delay in photos. I am temporarily back, and hopefully no future delays will be quite so long.

This is inside a covered bridge in Taftsville, VT.

I am thinking this one will be my new desktop background! Fall is so bright!

Friday, October 29, 2010


This is not a favorite picture by any means, as far as quality goes. But honestly, you would think a cat would want to actually get the mouse and not just watch it like that.

Tree and clouds. I was changing the brightness of this shot to get a photo with defined clouds, but not make the tree a complete silhouette.

Looking up again! Here are some less bright, but still nice-looking, leaves.

Friday, October 22, 2010


Looking up! I really liked these last bright leaves on the tree.

Twenty Nine

Bert & Ernie! These guys were magnificently done, and I made use of the "candlelight" mode on my camera.

Twenty 8

This pumpkin intensified my desire to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. I was surprised to see a couple pumpkins carved in just this way.

twenty seven

This was taken at the Keene Pumpkin Festival. It was one of my favorites of the night.

Twenty Six: country road revisited

I tried changing this photo to black and white, but then I found a couple other color-changing options and went with 'antique'. I like this photo much much more with these softer colors. Here is the original photo for comparison.

Jack was SO funny about wanting to sit on the pumpkins!

Friday, October 15, 2010


Another view of Jack in the apple crate. I might like this one more, with most of the box in the frame rather than the previous with all of the foliage filling the frame.

Thursday, October 14, 2010


Jack liked being in this apple crate. And I really like his facial expression.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


Horse and field at the farm near Thom and Melissa's. I think it was the Applecrest Farm?

This is a tree on the shore of Lake Ontario on the Oswego campus.

Vermont in the fall. This is the view from Hogback, at the scenic viewpoint along the road. Apparently you can see four states from here on a clear day.

Friday, October 8, 2010


A bonfire at Josiah's parent's house in Norwich. This was taken immediately after I commented on preferring natural-looking poses. I have been proven wrong though, because I love this photo.

Photo Sixteen

A small country road in New Hampshire. I just had to stop to get a photo of this road, but the photos didn't really turn out as picturesque as I was thinking the scene ought to be. I probably should have tried it in b&w.

Photo Fifteen

Often it is my goal to make my photos look as close to how my eye sees things as possible. This is certainly not the case with this photo. I used the "silhouette" mode, which created this really awesome photo.

I can't say this is an all-time favorite, but this one had to make the list just because it was nicely different from all the others. This was a plane flying over Lake Willoughby, doing barrel rolls.

Photo Twelve

This photo was taken at Trail's End on Lake Willoughby in northern Vermont. I really enjoy the colors of this photo, although I'm not sure why the corners are blackened.
