Within 10 minutes it dropped about 8 inches from the height I set—which … Continue reading How to fix your office chair for $5 when the cylinder begins to slip
I have to admit something. Of all the years I’ve been hiking the White Mountains in New Hampshire, I’ve never climbed up Mt. Monadnock in the southern part of the state. I always thought that since it was so close to Massachusetts, it probably wasn’t as high or challenging as its brethren up north. I was wrong. I went up to hike Mt. Monadnock with … Continue reading Dramatic skies over Mt. Monadnock
I took a stroll with my uncle at Beavertail State Park in Jamestown Rhode Island right before hurricane Isaias last week. The portion that hit Rhode Island was just some wind left over from the storm down in the Caribbean, but it still made for a great atmosphere at the beach in Rhode Island. The skies were calm and the waves weren’t insane, but it … Continue reading Beavertail Lighthouse before Hurricane Isaias

At 3:14 am everything is dead silent in the house. The cats are all sleeping (finally), we’re tucked under the covers with the AC quietly humming. A car hasn’t driven down our quiet street for the past 5 hours. The minute hand on my watch shifts and the alarm begins to siren.
I can assure you, there are few good reasons to wake up at 3:15 in the morning. The first one is if you awake and your house is aflame. The second is if you’re heading out to get some ocean fishing in. That’s precisely what I was planning on this beautiful morning with my good pal Christopher.Continue reading “Ocean fishing along the Elizabeth Islands off the coast of Massachusetts”

Last July I went back up to Brownfield, Maine to do some camping with friends. The stars were as gorgeous as ever up there. I created a bunch of shots, including some really long exposures of star trails, with a fire roaring at our campsite.

10pm on an unsuspecting Thursday. I took out the recycling and noticed some seriously dramatic clouds sweeping through the sky under the moon. I grabbed my equipment and took to the street with my slippers on like an old man. The newly renovated Cornell Lofts are basically my front yard. They helped to make a pretty interesting foreground for the action in the sky! Continue reading Clouds sweeping over Fall River
