Seasonal Art

I am obsessed with this old shed out in the back of my house. I return every season camera in hand and can always find something new to photograph. I love the deep textures of the old gray wood, the burnished colors of the rusted metal and the reflections in the old, stained windows. I stood on a step stool to get this shot. I wanted to be even with the window. I see so much going on in this photograph. Soon the first flakes of snow will fall and winter will bring its own story to the shed.

Anatomy of Old Shed

There is an old shed in my backyard. It has been in a state of decay for years and a favorite place to bring my camera.I decided before it really starts to fall down to take photographs from all angles. The old weathered wood, rusted metals and a sense of time and place have always intrigued me.

New Paths

I was walking around the old Strawbery Banke area in Portsmouth, NH, yesterday morning when I discovered a small clearing. Strawberry Banke is a restored neighborhood dating back to the 17th to mid-20th century. The clearing was scattered with remnants of old stone walls and had a little path leading by some interesting tree formations and then to an old arbor covered with grape vines.

Some of the trees had interesting shapes.

I followed the line of trees to a small meadow.

I was surprised by all the green this time of year.

Misty Sightings

I love the mornings, especially when I am out and about with my camera. I was just walking around Fort Stark in New Castle, NH, when I came upon this little skiff almost hidden by rocks and mist.
