From whimsical museum doors, to a ferry boat door, to brownstones in NYC and mill doors… here are a few of my choices.



Welcome Autumn 2016…




Weekly Challenge: Frame…

The prompt: We frame what we see through our lens. And it tends to be a process, whether you use the golden ratio, the rule of thirds, or just aim for the right balance.

But what about how the world frames itself? Look at things a bit differently,  find an alternative frame to the world around you and share what you see!


My choice for ‘frame’ is this picture I took on Martha’s Vineyard.  The Tabernacle is one of my favorite places and I can never take enough pictures of it, however this is one of my favorites and it happened accidentally.  Don’t a lot of them :)   I was walking out of Trinity Methodist Church which is across from the Tabernacle and just snapped this shot as I approached the doorway.  I love how it frames just a snippet of the Tabernacle.




Weekly Challenge: Landscape …

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting. Landscape photography is typically displayed in a horizontal orientation.


I have 3 choices for landscape.

A picture of Milford, Pennsylvania taken from High Point Monument in New Jersey… you can see three states from the monument, the highest point in NJ.

Weekly Challenge: Boundaries …

Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects. They’re there to stop us from doing or saying what we actually want to. But they also give structure to our actions and frame our movements. In photography, they help our eyes make sense of what we see and convey a sense of visual narrative. They constantly invite us to push against them.


My first photo of my interpretation of boundaries is this ‘do not enter’ sign on a usually closed gate in a private lake community in NJ…


My collage is from my visit to the Thomas Edison Laboratories in West Orange, New Jersey last December…


Weekly Challenge: Door …

For this week’s challenge, publish a new post with a photo of a door (or multiple doors!). Consider how color affects the image, but also think about size, shape, texture, and details — how might these elements add up to tell a story?


I went through lots of door pictures and thought about doing a collage but these two pictures kept jumping out at me mainly because I just really like them.

This first one is taken looking out of Trinity Methodist Church in the Campgrounds in Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard… looking towards the Tabernacle.

This second picture is taken looking into Trinity Methodist Church.



Shattered Glass …

Only up side to the shattered glass door today is that it made for beautiful photos.
