On Mothers' Day we visited Fort Stark for a little while. We've been there many times, but there is always something interesting to photograph. Colors and textures change with the light, and the array of stones and shells changes with every tide.
Last week, my friend Randall and I took a hike around Wagon Hill Farm in Durham to see if we could find some interesting scenes to photograph. We did see at least twenty-three swans, but most of them were floating too far from shore to photograph. We got fairly close to the two I have photos of. I enjoyed photographing the details of ice and snow textures, grasses and rock, seaweed and water, and sparkly reflections of sunshine.
A couple of weeks ago we were walking around Harvard Square, and came across this cemetery filled with old gravestones, some dating to the late 1600s. Most of them are in quite good shape, and are much more decorative than anything current.
On the day after Thanksgiving, we visited our kids in Western Massachusetts. We enjoyed another fine meal surrounded by evidence of the harvest: drying onions, peppers, corn, and radish pods. We took a walk and enjoyed the sunlight on the roadside weeds. We found decaying pumpkins in the woods and in the stream. We visited an abandoned mill site, and greeted the neighbor's cows before they headed in for the evening milking. It was a most enjoyable day.
