Dam Removal

Recently, I photographed the removal of the first of three earth and stone dams from the Hamant River in Sturbridge, MA. A project 7 years in planning is the result of collaboration between the town conservation commission, Massachusetts Fish & Game, and other groups. The restored free-flowing river will support the spawning of brook trout […]

I recently visited the factory of C.B. Fisk, makers of pipe organs in Gloucester, MA. A team of about twenty seven highly skilled craftspeople build instruments that are close relatives of the organs used by Bach in the 1700’s.

Concrete Plant At Night

A concrete plant in Wakefield, MA casts ominous shadows at night. Perhaps it is from “The War of the Worlds.”

More evening work at a shopping center. I love the challenge of mixed lighting and long exposures.

Shopping Center At Dusk

After a full day of photographing the buildings and pedestrian byways of the new MarketStreet Lynnfield, I hoped to capture a definitive image of the new shopping center at dusk. Riding a scissor-lift up about 30 feet above the brick-paved square, I positioned my tripod and Nikon on the platform. I waited for the early […]
