Thanks to those who have questioned my whereabouts. I’m alive, well, and still living in New Hampshire.
I have made some changes (btw, change is good). I’ve changed my career direction and pick-up the camera part-time now. I’ve been welcomed in the corporate world and love it! For the last several months I’ve been transitioning into my new career and a lot of my energy has been devoted to this direction.
Just recently, I’ve returned from taking a vacation with family in FL. Did I bring my camera? Of course, I did! What better opportunity to clean off the cob webs and use family as a guinea pig.
During my visit, I saw my talented nephew, David Simoneau, perform at the Tin Cow. I brought my off-camera flash and captured DJ while he sang his heart out.

Now that I’m becoming more grounded with my new career and direction, I will turn some of my creative energy towards updating my blog more often.
Thanks to my followers!
It’s been a great start to a new year. I’ve had plenty going on the last couple of months with creating new work, being grateful for what I have, enjoying every moment shared with Kevin, and welcoming the everyday challenges I may face.
With all the favorable distractions going on in my life, I managed to have a moment to grab my camera and be experimental. Being inspired by Adorama’s video on shooting water droplets, I was encouraged enough to drag out my camera equipment and find the necessary items to try something new at home.
What I used to capture the photos below:
1. I used a birthday card I received from Kevin as my subject.
2. Two boxes to hold a sheet of glass
3. One clean sheet of glass
4. Macro lens
5. Off camera flash
6. Spray bottle with an oil/water mixture
Below are a couple end results from my experimentation.
Ahhh. The last couple of days we have had above normal temperatures with no snow on the ground. Nice New England weather, minimal color to capture on camera, but a great day for a walk.
I was asked and encouraged by my friend Kevin to go for an afternoon walk with him and my camera. We took a stroll along the railroad tracks, over and under bridges, and rock hopped along the river’s path to capture some early winter scenes. It’s been awhile since I’ve had the opportunity to take the time to walk with a friend and be encouraged to press the shutter button. Thanks Kevin for putting extra smiles on my face and looking after me so I don’t fall into the river as I continued to take the “one more shot” before we head back home.
