A few more from New Hampshire (Artsy 1)

My friend’s family cottage is pretty ancient, i.e. outhouses, just got electricity, you know the deal.

There were some really interesting relics of history that were floating around in there and I had to capture some of them. Here’s to sharing!

I’ll put these in over a few posts. Here’s the first of a few. (Click for higher resolution images).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunrise On A Lake

Lake Winnipesauke. That’s where the pictures in the previous post were taken.

I woke up early on my second day there to watch the sunrise. It looked a little something like this.

It is now August

And I have been slacking off on updating pictures.

Better late than never, right?

I recently spent time at a friends summer vacation spot. It was a gorgeous cabin on an island in a New Hampshire lake.
Here are some outdoors pictures from that trip, with many more to come!

Enjoy!


In Spring There Is An Awakening (Part 2)

In the Spring, There is an Awakening (Part 1)

The fstopblues have been in full swing over the last few weeks. I’ve been busy and have missed the camera dearly.

I took (what I consider to be) a well deserved study break and went out to take some shots. I hope you enjoy them.

Close up

These next two were taken after a rain storm. That’s dirt on the flowers!

Fireworks Take Two

Hello? Anyone out there?

No? Yeah, that’s what I figured.

In that case, as you may not have noticed, I haven’t been here either. I started studying for grad school entrance exams and the camera has, unfortunately, taken the back burner till then.

Now that I have a few minutes to spare, I figured I’d share my second attempt at taking pictures of fireworks.
Here goes naught!

A Late Thanks for Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays because it’s basically a non denominational and non materialistic Christmas. There’s an interesting history to it which, from what I’ve read, isn’t as pleasant as it’s often made out to be. No matter, as this years Thanksgiving was quite pleasant.

When I was a kid, I really wanted a brother. I was eventually blessed with an incredible sister, but in the meantime I grew very close to one of my cousins. He’s the closest I’ve ever had to having a ‘real’ brother, and we’re quite close. We ended up moving out of India when we were both adolescents, and I’ve visited him in Africa twice. He recently started college near where my parents live and that meant that he was joining us for thanksgiving. It was his first Thanksgiving and he was determined to make it count. Awesome!

Long story short, we visited family in Rochester, NY and then headed over to have Thanksgiving at a family friend’s house. Here’s are some pictures that documented the momentous occasion.

Picture descriptions:

1) Heading over to dinner

2 and 3) Salad (YUM!)

4) Getting the baby a bib for his first thanksgiving.

5) Eating. Nom!

6 and 7) No pie, but we had this incredible creme brulee!

8 ) Taken right before I began my journey back to Boston.

And finally the picture of the night! This one speaks for itself.
