When the landscape gets dull and brown I tend to look for cityscapes and street scenes. Lynne & I enjoyed Christmas on Main Street in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, on Sunday. Later in the week I headed to Northampton on a day filled with flurries and snow squalls.

End of semester paperwork has temporarily grounded my camera and me. I did meet my daughter for tea on Thursday and took the opportunity to fit in a brief photo walk in Downtown Northampton, MA. Guess what song was going through my head.

Wednesday brought the first snowfall of the season. Not wanting to travel too far, I headed to Storrowton Village in West Springfield, MA. It’s nearby and offers a wonderful location for shooting some New England nostalgia. Thursday was Thanksgiving with my interpretation of Norman Rockwell’s “Freedom from Want”.

A rainy day has a mood all its own. The colors are more saturated. There’s a peaceful quietness behind the rhythmic sound of the raindrops. I especially love the charming contrast of warm interior lighting reflected in cold wet pavement. Monday dawned with a cold November rain, so I put my camera in a rain sleeve and headed for downtown Northampton to try and catch the mood.

I took my camera to Westfield’s Veterans’ Day Parade and Ceremony on Tuesday. Then I visited Stanley Park on a foggy morning. Later in the week I returned to Downtown Northampton.

November has arrived . . . that time between fall foliage and first snow. It can be a photographic challenge, but it’s a cozy time. This week’s photos are from Northampton,MA , Stanley Park and the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail, both in Westfield, MA.

The last week of October began brightly here in Southern New England, but turned damp and moody as Halloween and November approached.

It’s been a beautiful October here in southern New England, but it looks like we’re moving past peak foliage. This week’s gallery is from my ramblings last week.
