Algae

Algae

I went to Hampton with my “fausin” (fake cousin) a few weeks ago, I took this picture of some algae. She thought I was strange for doing it, but, I like how it came out.

I Love That Dirty Watah

For those of you who live in the New England area, and, are fans of the Red Sox, you know this is our song. The other day, I went down into Boston for an interview, and, decided, while I was there, I would take some pictures. I love Boston, and, whenever I go, I can’t help but play this song:

Dirty Water

By: The Standells

I’m wanna tell you a story
I’m wanna tell you about my town
I’m gonna tell you a big fat story, baby
Aww, it’s all about my town

Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the river Charles
Aw, that’s what’s happenin’ baby
That’s where you’ll find me
Along with lovers, buggers and thieves
Aw, but they’re cool people

Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston you’re my home
Oh, you’re the number one place

Frustrated women (I mean they’re frustrated)
Have to be in by twelve o’clock (oh, that’s a shame)
But I’m wishin’ and a hopin’, oh
That just once those doors weren’t locked
I like to save time for my baby to walk around

Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston you’re my home (oh yeah)

‘Cause I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston you’re my home (oh, yeah)

Well I love that dirty water (I love it, baby)
I love that dirty water (I love Boston)
I love that dirty water
(Have you heard about the Strangler)
I love that dirty water (I’m the man, I’m the man)
I love that dirty water (Owww!)
I love that dirty water (a come on, a come on)
I love that dirty water (come on)
I love that dirty water (I’m in love with Boston)
I love that dirty water (Aww yeah)
I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water

Some of the photos I took from that day….

This is another picture of my friend’s son at his first birthday party. He went inside and did not want to come back out!

After Rain

After Rain

I’d gone to Boston last week for a job interview (not sure yet if I got the job), after which, I decided to go through one of the little gardens in Boston and take some pictures. It had stopped raining as I got out of my car for the interview, and, I was able to get a few shots of various flowers with raindrops hanging off of them.

Star Trails

Star Trails

Last night (and, very early this morning) a few of my photographer friends, a model we know (Sarah Hauk), her hubby, and I, all went up to the Kancamangus Highway, to take pictures of star trails. It was my first time doing it with a DSLR. I’ve done it with my SLR, but, it is definitely different with a DSLR! This is one of the photos I came up with.

Bridge Over Troubled Water

Bridge Over Troubled Water

Ok, so, it isn’t really a full bridge…nor is it over troubled waters, but, I like the song. 😉 This was taken during my hiking photo excursion with my photographer friends and my daughter!

And, since I did use Simon and Garfunkel’s title, I’ll quote the song as well. I love that song.

Bridge Over Troubled Water

“When you’re weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I’m on your side
Ohhh, When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I’ll take your part
Ohhh, When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
Ohhh, If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind”

❤ the folk music!
