Completed week two of my photo a day project! Below are photos for day 8 through 14.
My only flower photo this week. At least it is a beautiful one!
New running shoes! Always worth a photo!
Evening fishing on the Charles.
Providence Harbor! Went down for a Thursday day off to visit a friend.
Beautiful way to start the summer. (Also my weekly “I need to post a photo” picture.)
Spent Saturday at the Boston Calling festival with friends. Tove Lo was my favorite performer and her voice was beautiful in person.
Hey Everyone! So after a rough never ending winter, I am back with a new project: one photo posted every day. I had done this once before and had not finished. This time I am DETERMINED to finish it, and think it will be easier because of two big differences. 1) I have a smart phone, so being able to take photos throughout the day will be easier. 2) I am changing my own process: At the end of every day I will post the photo of the day on my Instagram account, and then every Sunday or Monday I will post the past seven photos to my blog. The photos will range from artsy photos that I take to capturing experiences I have. Sometimes I will write a few words about the photos, sometime I will just post the photo.
Enjoy these first 7! And make sure to follow along to see if I actually complete it.
This photo came about because it was 9:30 at night and I was just getting home, all I could think was I hadn’t taken a photo I could post. Fortunately, my roommate is growing chiles and there was this bright red one!
I think the bus had “80’s party bus” written on it, but to me it was the Electric Mayhem bus from the original Muppet Movie.
My roommate and I ended up with tickets to the Kiss FM concert, where we had seats really close to the stage. There I finally got to watch one of my favorites, Kelly Clarkson, perform. She was just as amazing as I thought she would be, even more.
There you have it! My first 7 down, day #8 posted to Instagram….and 357 to go!
Par usual…it’s been a while since I posted. But I just got the new iphone 6 so I am thinking about starting a photo a day project, once maybe less photos will be of snow. The photos from it are very clear!
Speaking of snow….there as been a lot of snow in Boston. I love snow! The first snowfall of the season is always my favorite. After growing up in a snowy part of Ohio and going to school in Maine, I thought I could handle snow storms. The snowstorm of 2013 was no big deal (Nemo) and the snow day was somewhat fun. Now, 4 storms later, my relationship with snow is becoming a little strained – common for everyone in Boston.
And of course I have captured the accumulation of the various storm and posted photos on Instagram. Enjoy my photos from the 4 storms over 3 weeks accumulating in over 60 inches.
The park bench in the storm #1 photos is in this photo, can you find it?
*I got the idea of the name of the post from a hashtag my cousin used in a photo comment.
It has been a long time since I posted — but I haven’t stopped taking photos. I have a ton of photos to post, and I am going to try to get them up over the next month. In the mean time, I’ll catch you up on what I have been up to using some of my instagram favs!
Boston Marathon – Through my job, I have had the opportunity to work with a Boston marathon fundraising team. In the aftermath of the bombings, this year was an incredible year to be connected to the Boston marathon – and it made Marathon Monday even more exciting. As I mentioned in last year’s post on the bombings, my cousin who was running was one of many who did not make it to the finish. This year, she grabbed her number in a heartbeat, went back out on the course and ran the 26.2 miles to the finish line. My highlight of the day was getting to see her around mile 23 and give her a big hug — and then knowing that she finished. I had to get to my cheering spot early in the morning, and had the opportunity to snap Beacon Street when all the barriers were up and the police were doing their final course sweep. It was a little eerie and exciting. I deleted the instagram version of the photo so here is the orginal. You can see the instagram version here.
Wedding! – A close friend of mine from high school asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding — and it could not have been a more fun experience. The other bridesmaids were such a great group of girls, and her wedding was spatular and so much fun. I was honored to be included in their special day and cannot wait to hear about all the adventures they will have. The bridesmaids kicked off the wedding festivities with a bachelorette weekend in Miami. It could not have been a better weekend and set the tone for a fun summer. During the weekend we went on a sunset boat ride. Here is a photo of the Miami skyline as the sunsets and storm clouds move in.
In other fun news, after about 8 months of an empty house my parents moved and brought home a puppy one month later. Her name is Roxie and she is spunky and PERFECT. One of her favorite spots right now is under an ottoman in my parents living room. We don’t know what she will do when she can no longer fit. I took her on a short car ride (from the driveway to the street). She sat in the front seat and didn’t know which way to face. She has a lot of learning to do.
While I was home in Cleveland, my friend and I took a day trip Pittsburgh. I had never been to downtown Pittsburgh, and I enjoyed exploring it. On our way out, we stopped at a look out and I captured this shot of the city on a rainy day.
I also had some wonderful excursion in the Boston area:
Overnight trip to Nantucket
Day trip to vineyards
Sand Sculptures on Revere Beach (make sure to return for more photos!)
And most recently, a trip to the Harpoon Brewery, which also included enjoying the Boston Harbor.
I hope you enjoy these photos and make sure to check back soon for more photos!
The winter has felt particularly snowy. Almost every week the weather forecast includes a snow storm, and although they aren’t horrible storms, they tend to fall during rush hour, when everyone this on the road. Here are a couple of instagram photos I have taken of this white winter.
This winter has felt rough. Granted it is my second winter in Boston, and other then Nemo, last winter was on the mild side. This winter has been plagued with polar vortexes and snow storm after snow storm. Finally, last week we got a winter thaw! The timing of it could not be more perfect because I had a friend up visiting! The beautiful weather allowed us to enjoy strolling around downtown, walking from the Commons to Copley, skating on the frog pond (my first time!) and a night out in the North End.
And of course the snow allowed me to snap some great photos of downtown Boston. Enjoy!
When I see a page title with “photos of abandoned places” I can’t help put click and admire the beautiful photos of abandoned places. I love when photographers can take abandoned places or objects and place them in a composition that is compelling. A goal of mine has always been to go into the abandoned warehouses around Cleveland and take photos of the aged infrastructures of Cleveland’s golden days, but have yet to do so. The closest I have come to succeeding is taking a photo of one of my favorite abandoned buildings when it was in the middle of the process of being torn down.
It was exciting for me to see the theme of this week’s photo challenge: abandoned places. At first I didn’t think I would have a moment to get out and take a shot for the theme. However, I lucked out when I remembered I had photos left from over this falls apple picked expedition of a pile of abandoned apple creates and other various abandoned objects.
