In the midst of chaos

I know I’ve been slacking on GMG for a couple days, but there’s a lot of hustle and bustle around my house these days as we prepare for my daughters wedding shower this weekend… SO I will leave you with this photo of my favorite spot because this place always calms me in the midst of chaos!  BLM_8272-Edit-Edit(1)

Some more comings and goings from Ten Pound Island

We avoided the beach traffic yesterday and hung out at Ten Pound Island and enjoyed just watching the boats go by.   These ladies from Ohio visiting some friends in Ipswich had the same idea!

Schooner Roseway from my kayak

Caught the Schooner Roseway setting sail as I was yakking around Ten Pound Island yesterday morning.   I could hear the unison “heave-ho” of the group as they began to pull the sails up and within minutes she was under sail and heading out of the Harbor.

I’m guilty of this…

I think one of the reasons I’m always the one behind the camera is because I just hate having my picture taken but after reading this I’m going to make sure I get in front of it more often!  Are you guilty too?  Then check out this article!

So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed


Beverly-Salem Bridge…it’s not just for driving over


My friend Helen drags me to the most unlikeliest places to photograph.   Last night we went to the Beverly-Salem Bridge for sunset and blue hour and you would think to yourself “meh” not a great scene to shoot.   BUT…it turned out to be a great place to photograph!  Lots of color and clouds, the kids in boats fishing on a summer night, the train going by AND we were treated by the moon rising on the other side (and me without my big girl lens!).  After all was said and done it was another relaxing night of photography, a beautiful summer night for being outside and another perfect night with my friend Helen!





Summer escapes

As I prepare to head up to Maine this week, here’s a few shots from the little town of Port Clyde, Maine where I made a pit stop during my travels last month.    Love these little harbors.  The sculpture of clam diggers brings back memories of my great-grandfather Weymouth Roberts and Uncle Stan Roberts who used to clam for a living and my great grandmother who used to sit at the table and shuck clams for hours.   Hope you all are finding your little escapes this summer!



Reflecting on our Independence

While we all enjoy the parade, cookouts and fireworks, let’s reflect a bit about one of the best known sentences in the English language from from the Declaration of Independence…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.   Be safe and enjoy!!
