Greetings. For this in New England, I want to pass along an invitation to join us this coming weekend in Grafton, Massachusetts for the Small Stones Festival of the Arts (access the link for more information and directions). This represents a cooperative effort on the part of a number of area arts organizations as you can see.
I am grateful to the photography jurors (Nancy Burns, Scot Erb, Donna Dufault and Robert Ring) for choosing a number of my images for exhibit. They represent a fairly electic display, so we’ll see how that all works. I’ll be there on Friday night and again on Saturday afternoon.
We had a fairly nasty winter storm covering much of New England yesterday. Inland, it was just another snow storm. On the coast, the seas sadly became a lethal hazard. My home is blessed with a back yard that faces conservation land just twenty feet or so from our back windows. Until the snow covered the windows, we could see into the forest and experience the storm in a way that was very intimate. I don’t do well with enforced staying at home, but the forest offered some considerable solace.
You have to admire the ability of nature to withstand it’s own barrage. Were we all so resilient.
Technical Note: These images were made with 6K photo on a Panasonic GH5. It is perfect for capturing action like this. You hold the shutter down for several seconds capturing thirty 18 mp. jpgs. You can review the individual images in capture and save those that may have appeal. It’s a fascinating strategy that I suspect has a great deal of utility for a variety of situations, particularly family and sports.
I want to thank my friends at the Art and Frame Emporium in Westborough, Massachusetts for hosting a small exhibition of my series, “Lost in the Water” through November 8. You’ll also be able to check out a very affordable folio of images from the show. If you need direction, hit the link above.
On display in the Winter Solstice Exhibition at the Griffin Museum of Photography, Winchester, Massachusetts, from December 8 through January 1.
