For the past 15 years, Heather and Roy Martin have been creating incredible displays to celebrate Halloween in Marblehead. I had heard stories of High Street as the destination for trick or treating in town but had not yet ventured there with my wife and young kids. In advance of this Halloween, I posted a question of the All Marblehead Happenings Facebook page and received some great advice about the street and this house. We arrived a little before 6pm and I stood in line while my wife took the kids around houses to collect candy. From the street, one [...]
Wednesdays in Marblehead will be going on hiatus for the next few weeks. I will not be posting to the website or Facebook as I take time to renew the creative drive that led me to start this exploration of the beauty to be found in the town of Marblehead. The five year anniversary of Wednesdays in Marblehead is coming up on August 14 and I hope to have new material to share by then. I will continue to fulfill print orders as well as those for books and the 16-month 2016 Calendar. See you soon...
I am honored to receive the Peoples Choice Award at the Marblehead Festival of Arts 2015 for the second consecutive year! This year's image Hooper to the Harbor was an overwhelming favorite when I first shared it and that sentiment seemed to be shared by the thousands attendees of this years 50th Marblehead Festival of Arts. A bit of background on the image: During the Summer of 2014, scaffolding went up around St. Michaels’ Church as a new steeple was raised on the building. I managed to make my way to the top of the scaffolding one August evening with the [...]
I was honored to receive the Peoples Choice Award at the Marblehead Festival of Arts 2014 for this image - Storm Chasing at Chandler Hovey Park. Here is a bit of background on the image: I was down at the Pleon Yacht Club shooting across the harbor and hoping to capture the great cumulus clouds over the harbor when the sky turned ominously dark. I quickly left and headed to Chandler Hovey Park where I switched to an ultra wide angle lens and stood on a bench to capture the 7 images that would make up this final panoramic shot. [...]
The end of May has arrived and, with it, the monthly look back slideshow. At the end of the show, you'll see a slide about my Dad & Grad Sale. Now that my second printing has arrived and I am fully stocked with books, I wanted to extend a discount for all those looking for gifts for Dads and Grads. You can order books online or find me at the Farmer's Market on Saturday, June 6 from 9am to 12pm at the Veterans School.

A public service reminder that polls are open and voting is taking place today for a number of seats in Town government as well as one override. This town election has been mired by one of the ugliest campaigns in recent history. I hope that all registered voters will make their voices heard loud and clear that Marblehead is too beautiful a town to be made ugly by a select few.
Another converted infrared image from a bike ride around town on June 15, 2014. This image was taken 30 minutes before the one at Redd's Pond as I made my way along the rail trail towards downtown. I've shot from under this bridge previously but, this time, was interested in the effect that infrared would have in highlighting the foliage along the trail and some of the graffiti below the bridge. Can't wait for the weather to warm up and all the snow to melt so that I can head out on my bike again.

How about a break from the snow and cold for a look ahead at one of my favorite events during Spring in Marblehead - the Annual Devereux Beach Carnival! Last year offered incredible conditions for shooting the carnival with dense fog and rain leaving puddles throughout the grounds. The carnival was nearly empty on this night and I went about capturing some of my favorite images of the carnival in the fog at night. I haven't shared this one yet but it was one of my favorites from the night. The neon glow of the Fried Dough sign shining brightly [...]
