WTSB : Together

6 Mar






words to shoot by is back! we’re on our second word of the year: together. i shot these in a beautiful old church in Beacon Hill on friday night a couple weeks ago. we joined a couple friends at that church for a concert featuring an experimental cello quartet and a couple other string ensambles. i had only brought my camera on a whim, since i rarely shoot at night, but i’m lucky i did.


wtsb : cheer

10 Dec







life has been at light speed the past couple weeks, and i missed posting the latest Words. Our word was cheer, to celebrate the season and another successful year of Words to Shoot By. I stumbled upon an overly cheerful (read: drunken) scene in harvard square a couple wknds back. the Yulefest 5K had just ended and its participants were in refreshing themselves and enjoying one hell of a dance party; it’s was pretty entertaining. coincidentally i saw that same elf (last shot) in full costume leaving the Cambridge 5K this past sunday, serial holiday 5k’er?

Cheer will be our final post for the year and the project will go on a short hiatus while everyone enjoys the holidays. we’ll be back in the new year, can’t wait.

WTSB : thankful

20 Nov



the latest words to shoot by is up! our word was thankful. i have much to be thankful for but the thing that i most savor this time of year is a feast with friends. we shared a mid-afternoon nosh with our good friends at a restaurant is called eventide oyster company in portland, maine. the food, drinks, and late afternoon sunlight at eventide are spectacular. the fried oyster bun (second to last shot) was my favorite!

wtsb diptych & the cranberry bogs

12 Nov


the latest WTSB, diptych! we tried taking two this round. I shot my images with my Yashica at Make Peace Cranberry Bog in Carver, MA. our next post is next monday so stay tuned!

I have admittedly been sitting on these photos, and many more, because i’ve been having image quality issues with wordpress (as you can see!). it seems useless to post when WP compresses my photos into blurry oblivion. I am thinking about firing up my flickr stream and posting a little more lightly over here. we’ll see…  

WTSB : Water

24 Sep

and a few outtakes….


the latest Words to Shoot By it up! This round our word was WATER, and we also had an open call for entries so the post at WTSB is jam-packed with great photos! I shot my images at Sandy Neck Beach on Cape Cod. The water was surprisingly warm that day. Through the shallow tide i waded out and watched the patterns the sun refracted on the sand through the water. there were quiet a few people out in the water near me and in the last shot you can see someone parked their cane on the beach while they took a dip. i love it.

She will be missed, though will continue to contribute photos to the project (yay). The equally fantastic mr. dave tuttle is taking over to keep to project going. Hoooray!  Good luck Steph and thanks Dave!
