Boston's Seaport

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I went into the Boston Seaport on Friday evening. It was a beautiful night to walk through the Fort Point Channel/Seaport district.

One of the final shots of the evening. This was with a higher ISO as it was getting pretty dark out.


It was a lovely evening with a beautiful breeze. This is such a beautiful area of Boston. There were many people out walking through the area enjoying the city. Boston is such a beautiful city and I feel lucky to live so close.

Tangerini's Spring Street Farm Sunflowers

I thought I was hot on Tuesday at the Patriots Training Camp in Foxboro. Well, the very next day I went to Tangerinis Farm in Millis MA to pick sunflowers with Miss J and the kids. Wow......it was brutally hot out in the sunny fields. We didn't last more than 10-15 minutes out there. I didn't take too many photos, but here are a couple that I took.



We were all happier in the shade having our lunch at the Farmers Porch, where all farm to table fresh delicious and nutritious food is served.





I hope to return here on another day that's not so hot with my camera if the sunflowers last for another week. I will be away all next week but hope to go back to this farm the week after my vacation. It's also a good excuse to go for a yummy lunch as well!

It was a very very hot and muggy day here yesterday but the heat didn't stop me from visiting the Pat's Training Camp in Foxboro. Despite the heat, I had a really good time and seeing the guys has gotten me really excited for the start of the upcoming football season. (Please click photos to enlarge)

Evening Views Along May Pond Rd Barton VT

May Pond has been featured here on the blog probably more times than any other place. It's one of my favorite places on the planet where I enjoy nature's beauty and always find a sense of peace and serenity. On my recent family trip to VT, I didn't have the time, or rather I didn't take the time, to do much landscape photography. However, one evening my grandson Stevie was overtired and could not be consoled and would not lay down to fall asleep. He was pretty much a hot mess! So I suggested to Miss J that we put him in his car seat and take a short drive to get him settled down and to sleep. My destination...........May Pond Road! 



Stevie fell asleep along the ride, and I took a few quick landscape shots along the way.
The distant mountain with the pointed ridge in this next shot is Jay Peak.


A little piece of Heaven on Earth!

Lotus Flowers Whitman MA

I'm baaaaaack!!!!! I'm sorry that it's been so long since my last blog post, but here I am and very happy to be getting back out there with my camera. It feels mighty fine I may add! The only real shooting I've done in quite a long while was the eagle nest and eaglets because it was easy and didn't require walking and much effort at all. I've been under the weather for quite a while but happy to say I'm healthy and feeling a lot better.

Each Summer one of my favorite things to photograph is at a local water garden that has hundreds of beautiful lotus flowers. I stopped by here one morning last week:





There's a lot of pretty Queen Anne's Lace that surrounds the water garden as well.


I have plans to go up to our Vermont house this weekend and can't wait to get back up there. I'm excited for that! I hope all is well in your World and hope you are enjoying your Summer.

Bald Eaglets Branching

I hope you are staying cool and hydrated as possible during this heat wave. It's brutal out there. Thank God for air conditioning. I don't know how I survived as a child without it!!! Ok, now I sound old! :-)
I've made two visits to the Bald Eagle nest since my last post. The eaglets have branched but they haven't fledged yet. One of them is more dominant and branches out much more than the other one, who is not as brave yet.




Notice the smaller eaglet is just at the edge of the nest in this next photo. He/she is still not confident enough to take the step out.


Breakfast delivery this morning from one of the adults....
