Opening Reception, and some of my holiday gifts



Join us for the Opening Reception for Light
Thursday, February 3rd at the Dedham Community Theatre 6-7: 30 pm

Illuminate or cast light onto an object as Caravaggio did in his 6th-century oil paintings; explore moonlight, lamplight, daylight through the camera lens; enlighten the viewer with a new approach to a subject.

Are you an Eastern Massachusetts ArtistThere is still time to enter! enter here

I have to say it was hard to choose a photo or two for this show. So much in life is about light and especially in photography


I just loved this Christmas gift from Marietta Apollonio. I received so many great gifts and many artful gifts. This one is part of Marietta's 100-day illustration project. It is "the good" Clint Eastwood's character in the Good, Bad and the Ugly Movie. A favorite film of mine and I do own it.
Just love the premise and the music!


I also received many toys for my photography projects. One of the super cute gifts was from my husband was this cute Narwhal. This little guy just makes me smile! Stay tuned for new toy photography!

Happening 2018

We have had some weather in the Boston area, snowstorms and freezing cold temperatures. I have gone into organizing mode and thinking about doing a few projects. Stay Tuned


This is one of the photos I will have on display at the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in February
along with my friend's Gretje Ferguson and John Shiraga's photography work. They will be framed this week. Last fall we had a photo meet up at the estate. I am hoping to take a few 
winter photos soon

My newphew, Brody got these super heroes Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots: Batman v. Superman 
Edition for Christmas. It was fun to play with them and brought me back to my childhood days. Although I just remember the Robot ones. I haven't thought of them in so long. I think 
these are really good for stress relief!

I am trying to take more time to see my what is around me. This little guy was at Petco and just staring at me. Very cute! When I was a kid I had a parakeet and I was the only one he didn't bite. I enjoying watching birds, they have such funny mannerisms

Fall is special Places, Dedham Square

I took a little wander around the Dedham Community House looking for fall pics. This was earlier in the fall so not a huge color change yet but still pretty. Also, who can resist pumpkins

I was asked to photograph an event at the non-profit. They have an annual fall fair every year. They lucked out and the weather was good and the kids had a great time. I like photographing events like these.

Fall in Special Places series, Hale Reservation


I like to visit a great spot in Westwood and Dover, Hale Reservation. The Westwood Land Trust had a call to artists to create an artwork or photograph that was nature inspired in Westwood, MA. I choose to take a drive out to Hale Reservation. Even though it is late in the year for fall photos there was a lot to capture. I decided to go with the fall nature details and not overall landscapes. 

I used my Tokina Macro Lens and I love the results. It is a great lens to get close to your subjects

The Hale Reservation is a private nonprofit that welcomes public visitors. 

The show "Capturing Nature" is up at the Westwood Library in November. I submitted two photos. One of them is at the very bottom of these sets of photos. There are some really nice pieces in the Show

This exhibit is sponsored by Westwood Land Trust, Westwood Schools, and the Westwood Library. A reception was held on October 26 from 3pm-7pm.
