Week9 - Reflection

Shot of a single swan in the river near my home, I did love his reflection captured here, although I was a little weary about how close to me he was getting. If a swan wags it's tail is that a good sign like a dog or bad like a cat? :)

Taken with my Pentax DA f1.8 50mm prime lens mounted on my K50.

Week8 - Lines

Rail track lines, in Medford MA, going off in to the cold distance. I liked the shadows from the trees cast by the low winter sun in this shot.

Week7 - Unhealthy Chocolate Treat

A Chocolate tour of Boston provided plenty of opportunities for tasting delicious unhealthy treats like these football themed cupcakes.

Week6 - Light trails / Lines

My attempt at long exposure night photography to capture the light trails of passing cars near South Station in Boston.

This was attempted by resting my camera on a nearby electrical box which wasn't exactly level, so the horizon isn't exactly straight but I think the street lamps having a sort of '60's Batman perspective' adds to the shot right? :)

Week3 - Handmade/Colorful/Bold Colours - Arisia Boston '17

My first Arisia convention provided lots of opportunity to take photos of the amazing bold colors of the handmade costumes at the show.

What a great get together of like minded individuals, this may have been my first time visiting but it won't be my last.

Week1 - 2017 - Tradition

I have a tradition of a cold winter photography walk at the start of the New Year to downtown Boston to capture the ice sculptures left behind from First Night.

It seems I left it a little too late this year because most of the sculptures had either melted or been destroyed, very sad. I was however able to capture this one before it completely disappeared. Posted also for the topic "Timing is Everything".
