This week I decided to take a photo drive west on Massachusetts Route 57. After stopping to shoot in New Marlborough, I found myself in Norman Rockwell’s hometown of Stockbridge. Of course I couldn’t let a week go by without visiting Northampton for a photowalk and finished up with a couple of shots on our deck at home.


It was kind of a slow week photographically. . . and frigid. I did have a meeting in Northampton on Thursday and took a photowalk through downtown.


For this week’s gallery I decided to review 2014 in photos. I found it difficult to select one image for each month with May and October being the most challenging.
Thanks for following along. I plan to continue posting a weekly gallery for 2015. Wishing You All a Happy New Year.


It was a week for last minute shopping in downtown Northampton, MA, followed by a Family Christmas at our home in Southwick. Happy New Year everyone.


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.
