Elm Street Bridge - 1894
Participated in my first "Meet Up" with the Plymouth Photography Meet Up group. We met mid-morning at Luddam's Ford Park off of Elm Street in Hanover, MA. Luddam's is a beautiful, peaceful conservation area with walking trails, a stream, open fields, and a pond. Even though the fall foliage is just past its peak, there were still some beautiful colors left to enjoy.

Tried my first foray into the world of capturing images in "Raw". Raw images are digital negatives, similar to a film negative. The purpose of raw formats is to save the image, with minimumal loss of information. The image is then processed using imaging software, similar to sending a "negative" to a lab to process.
I love how the available window light shines on the elements in the photograph. The image was captured at the Rebecca Nurse Homestead in Danvers, Massachusetts. Rebecca was one of the first women to be executed as part of the Salem Witch Trials in 1692. For more information on Rebecca please visit the Rebecca Nurse Homestead.

During a picture perfect day in New Hampshire, with a fun group from the South Shore Camera Club (Quincy, MA), I shot this photograph at The Basin in the White Mountain National Forest. The day before the area had experienced heavy rainfall. The water was rushing down the basin with a thunderous, yet calming, sound. This photograph was taken at a slow shutter speed to create the flowing effect.

"To understand any living thing, you must, so to say, creep within and feel the beating of its heart". -- W. MacNeile Dixon, poet, historian, scholar of the English language.
While waiting to board a boat out of Boston Harbor I noticed this young man wandering around the waterfront. As soon as this ship appeared he sat on the thick black chain and watched the ship until it vanished into the open waters of the Atlantic.
I wondered what brought the young man to the waterfront, and in particular what fascinated him about the ship. He didn't board any of the boats leaving the harbor, and he was still on land when my boat left.
- Was he yearning for the freedom of sailing around the world and dreaming of the ports he might visit?
- Did he just disembark from the ship and may be missing his shipmates?
- Does he aspire to build great ships?
- Or, maybe he just enjoys spending time by the water.
What is your impression?
