Washington DC!

Korean War Memorial, Washington DC • Petzval test

(Korean War Memorial, Washington DC)

Back in March, Sara and I took a week and headed down to Washington DC.  It was the first time either of us had been to Washington, and we both felt it was high time we visited our Nation’s capital and took in some of the museum’s and memorials. Plus, it was our first experience using Airbnb, a service that lets anyone rent their home or room to travelers.

Leather camera bag/satchel, Canon 5DMkII, Petzval lens


I’ve been carting the Lomography Petzval lens with me every where I go when I bring a camera that isn’t job-related.  This lens is a finicky little piece of brass and glass, but I’m getting the hang of it.

I love this bag.  I’ve had it for a while now, and the goat leather is getting very soft to the touch.

This little bag shot was taken at Saint-Gaudens in Cornish, NH

Graced with some gorgeous weather lately, my buddy Mike and I took our scooters out for a ride.  I took this portrait of Mike during our stop at Woodmont Orchard in Hollis NH.  Taken with the Petzval lens.

Michael Bellar & As Is Ensemble * Oh No Oh Wow

Hey y’all – just a quick note this Sunday morning to let you all know that Michael Bellar’s new album “Oh No Oh Wow” has finally released.  I’ve been waiting a long time for this.  Every time I’ve talked to Michael over the phone I’ve been hounding him about when this was coming out.  Well, wait no more.

You can stream it up above to give you an idea of how awesome it is.  Then, drop 10 clams for either the digital or a hard copy and grooooooove.

This is his best album yet.  I can’t stop playing the CD.

Get it.  Got it?  Gooooood.

Meet Tony and Penni, aka, Folkapotamus.

These two have a special place in my heart because they are, so far, the last musicians to contact me because of seeing my work hanging at the old Studio 99.  They, in a way, signaled the end of an era in regards to me working with musicians who performed at Studio 99.  I can’t not associate the two.  They came to me looking for images that they can use on their forthcoming cd.  I wanted to do some studio shots for them that they could use for album artwork and various gig flyers and posters as well as social media stuff.  I did these a lot, and I think they were just as happy with the images.
