Sunday (December 8, 2013) – There was a MeetUp on Saturday in Historic Wickford Village on Saturday with the “Discover your passion… For Photography” MeetUp group, but since I was in Plymouth for a PDP MeetUp, I could not attend. After looking at the pictures that everyone posted, I couldn’t help but head down there myself on Sunday.
The local shops go all out with their window displays and holiday decorations. The entire village center makes you feel like you have stepped back in time. There were photographic opportunities around every corner.
Below are a selection of my favorite shots of the afternoon. Enjoy!
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!
Sunday (July 14, 1013) – The Newburyport Photowalk group held a Meetup at the Plum Island Lighthouse. E & I headed up there after our afternoon at the Butterfly Place. About 20 members of the group attended. We spent some time down on the beach photographing the water and the pier. Then everyone headed over to the lighthouse.
It was nice to have other photographers around to share ideas with and to give and get advice on camera settings and composition. However, having so may people in such a small area made for some difficulty setting up shots. Someone was always wandering into someone else’s frame.
It is a very beautiful area and I will probably find myself up there again someday, but I could have done without the Noseeums and Greenheads. Below are a selection of my photographs. 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.
