2020 in Review

This was a year to remember…or perhaps forget. In spite of travel restrictions, I managed to produce a decent amount of photographs in 2020. But unlike every other year, the vast majority of those photos are from my neck of the woods in New England. If anything, the ghastly pandemic has made me appreciate photographing […]

2019 in Review

As I look back on 2019, it seems that I traveled outside New England more than usual this year (noted by my immediate family). The year started with a photography trip to the Algarve region of Portugal in January, followed closely by my 5th visit to the Lofoten Islands of Norway in February. Then in […]

2018 In Review

Once more, I find myself in a humble place looking back at my photos with a critical eye. For some of us, year end is a time of reckoning when we pause to ask ourselves some tough questions. What have I accomplished in the last year? How can I improve my craft? Where should I […]

2017 In Review

Well, here we are. Another year gone by and a bunch of photos added to my archive. But, does our photography improve year-to-year, or are we doomed to rehashing old successes within our cozy comfort zone? I do think most photographers tend to stick to a fairly narrow range of subjects and techniques, but this […]

2016 In Review

My Oh My, how time flies! With the rollercoaster of 2016 finally coming to an end, I once more turn a critical eye to the photos I’ve made over the last twelve months in an attempt to pick my twenty favorite images. But I have to admit that the very notion of “favorites” can be […]

2015 In Review

Once a year, I build up the courage to look back and see what photos have been left in my wake. And I force myself to choose 20 images for this annual review. Why 20? It’s subjective like most things in photography, but I hear that people tend to lose interest when presented with more than […]

Best of Europe 2014

Alpine Sunrise: Dolomite Mountains, Italy

Part of the fun of photography is experiencing beautiful places with like-minded people. I may be a New Englander, but I still love traveling outside New England several times a year. Like Rick Steves, I too believe that travel opens up the mind and builds bridges between diverse people. In 2014, I had the pleasure […]

Best of New England 2014

Nubble Light: Cape Neddick, Maine

Once a year, I look back upon my work to assess the damage. Well, it’s that time of year again. So, how does one select a mere 20 photos out of a catalog of 9000? It’s neither easy nor scientific: I simply try to pick images that evoke strong emotion, like the above photo of […]
