Cape Cod

One of the perks of retirement is vacationing after Labor Day. The last weekend of September Lynne and I head for the Cape. The weather has been beautiful the last couple of years.The crowds are gone, but everything is still open.
I tried to capture a bit of the feel with this gallery.

Downtown Springfield

I don’t often get into downtown Springfield. Last Friday I was dropping off some prints at the Valley Photo Center in Tower Square and took the opportunity for a stroll. The murals from last month’s Jazz & Roots Festival were still up giving the Court Square area a very “artsy” feel.

Here, There and Everywhere

First week of the fall semester meant back to school, Chalk Art Festival, Northampton Jazz Festival, Wings of Freedom, a shoot with my favorite poet, and a couple of four legged friends.

Catching Up

After discovering that individual photos received significantly more views than my galleries posted here, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this site. Not everyone who views this site is on Facebook where I post individual pics . . . so I’ll do both. Here, then, is a collection from the last couple of weeks.

Art in the Orchard

Art In the Orchard, open all day from August 15 – October 31, 2015, is a walking sculpture trail which winds through Park Hill Orchards in Easthampton, Massachusetts. This third biennial exhibition features the work of 28 selected sculptors. The self-guided trail is about a half-mile long. A walk through the labyrinth adds about a quarter mile.

Northampton Community Gardens

What a beautiful way to spend part of a summer day! I visited Northampton Community Gardens off Prince Street and wandered through garden after garden. With these photos I’d like to share that peaceful experience. Please join me for a virtual garden stroll. Click on the first photo then scroll through the collection of image and verse.


Sidewalk Sales found my camera and I taking a walk through downtown Northampton MA this week.
Note: Careful analysis has made it apparent that individual photos receive more views than galleries. Therefore I will be posting individual images more frequently. Asking people to click through multiple images in a gallery can be somewhat tedious. I will post galleries on occasion when I have a photo essay to share. Thank you all.


Took my camera to Tuesday Market in Northampton, MA, this week. It turned out to be a good day for umbrella shots. This has to be one of the best farmers’ markets in the area . . . 1:30 t0 6:30 every Tuesday.


Our son, Ryan, and his fiancée, Alanna, spent the month of June with us. We drove them to Boston on the 30th as they headed back to California. As usual, I kept my camera with me all month.
