Here’s a view of moderately busy Harvard Square. Not the charming, rough edged place it once was, but still worth traversing. What is notable about this pic is that it was taken from the offices of Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe, a “law firm” that had a loose connection to Car Talk on NPR. On this sunny fall afternoon I ascended to the 3rd floor of the building and found the “law office” occupied by an Ophthalmologist, who offered me an eye exam. He was kind enough to permit me to photograph the street below through his window.

This weekend I focused on photographing the subtler colors of the fall.

Yesterday my daughter and I took a short hike in The Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary where we visit year-round. I was first introduced to this 2000 + acre mix of forest and wetland in the early 1980’s while working on photos for a book about country walks near Boston. Click image for full screen view
As part of my tour of instrument makers’ workshops, I made a late winter stop at The Violin Making & Repair program at the North Bennett Street School in Boston’s North End neighborhood. The program accommodates ten students in the three year program who are passionate about working with their hands, using techniques traceable back to the great Antonio Stradaveri. Click here to see photographs taken at artisans’ studios making, guitars, brass, flutes, and pipe organs. I am actively searching for a magazine to run this story. Referrals appreciated!
