Saturday (December 7, 2013) – I attended a MeetUp with the Plymouth Digital Photographers Club at the Mayflower Society House in Plymouth. The downstairs was was decked out a la 1940s Christmas and the upstairs was decorated with the standard 18th century period furnishings that regularly fill the Mayflower House Museum. we were very lucky to have a member that organized a private viewing and photography session before the museum was opened to the public for the afternoon reception and tours.
After our hour and a half in the Museum, I wandered down to the park where the Mayflower II is docked and along the shore. I also made a stop on my way out of town at the Jenney Grist Mill.
Below are my favorite shots of the afternoon. Enjoy!
Saturday (6/29/2013), I attended a Meetup with the Plymouth Digital Photographers Meetup Group. Our focus was Macro & Close-Focus Photography. I met a lot of new interesting people that share my love of photography. It was a chance to share our knowledge, techniques and ideas.
It was pretty overcast all morning with a few intermittent showers, but that made for some great shots. No sun meant we weren’t fighting the brightness that is often an issue when photographing flowers as well as the rain provided some great water effects on everything. Below are a sample of the photographs that I took.

Saturday (June 8, 2013) – My Mom has always had a green thumb. Since her retirement kicked in a few years ago, she has developed her yard into magnificent gardens. As the months turn from Spring to Summer to Fall, something is always in bloom.
Not only are they beautiful to look at, they give me the opportunity to hone my nature photography skills and put my macro lens to use.
Here are a selection of my shots from early June. Enjoy!
