"Got Her!!"

"Boo-yah!" It took some doing but I finally got some pictures of my dog, Molly. She is a mostly black and white, Border Collie and labrador retriever mix. If you have been following previous threads where I mention Molly but had not gotten any picture, it is because she is ALWAYS running around. I have pictures of Molly's pack friends that she goes with on regular outing to the infamous pit I constantly referred to so many times before. Well, she a huge ball of energy and hard to catch sitting still but I did it. Here they are of her along with my son, Brandon, running beside her along the pond's edge. I also have a nice reflective shot of The Pit among other pictures of Molly and the gang. "Whew!"

Man (& Woman's best friend)

My friend Pauline and I, took our dogs out to what we refer to an area called "The Pit". Pauline now has, with the recent addition of Sam; four dogs to my one named Molly. I got some nice shots of her dogs including Sam, the white with spots, Pit Bull. But I have yet to get a good shot of Molly. She spends a lot of time, I mean a whole lot of time, running all over the place. She NEVER sit still. Unless it's to get a treat and even then she doesn't sit still for long. So she is the only one that is not in this set of photos.

There is always next time. "There will be a next time." I will get her.

I am patient.

Father n Daughter

I saw this father and daughter at the balloon festival in Hillsborough, New Hampshire, July 2009. I thought they were a great subject matter for some shots. The dad was gracious enough to let me take their picture(s). I gave him my card so he could later view them on my blog but my laptop crap-out before I could. It has been some months now but I am hoping the dad has not given up on me and will still check back to see the images.

Lost Email

Took these pic of a couple of brother ice fishing way back in 2006. I was going to email them copies but lost their email address. It has haunted me ever since. So, if you see a couple of brothers ice fishing on lake in Dover, NH on route 9, drop me a line.


(no, really, ya never know, drop a pebble into the water and it creates ripples, word may get around enough) ;)

Images from my own archives

I decided to dig into my archives to show some of my old work that will going into my gallery for sale. Here is a sneak peek!

Quote Of The Day

"Pain is temporary, but
Regret is forever
Nick Illopoulos

During my Small Business Management class this past Tuesday morning, a fellow student had made this statement while the instructor was going around the room asking volunteers from the divided group of student to speak about a failure they experience and what they learned from it. This great quote was part of his story.

I felt compelled to use it but I wanted to give credit where credit is due.

It can be applied to so many scenarios in life as well as business.

"Thanks for sharing Nick!"

The Story of "The Flower"

"The Flower"

As we pass through this world
sharing space and time with others...
Pain can be felt as a result of the separation from others.

Torn away like a rip piece of paper.

Sometimes our pull cause the tear
Sometimes we're pulled to a tear

No matter the reason; good or bad
it still causes some pain.

We spent time with people
We spent time with others
We give our time; a piece of ourselves is left with them.

But like "The Flower" that grows
every year; loosing a petal,
had a pruning along it stem
loosing some leaves...

Whatever piece is lost
Whatever petal drops
Whatever wind blew, harsh sun or cold rain.

It will grow back...in time.
Time "does" heal all wounds.
But a flower, even wild, stills need care.
"The Flower" needs to take care of itself.
The roots need to be deep for water and nutrients.
"The Flower" bends toward the sun for its benefit.
Its survival.

Whatever friends you loose.
Marriage that ends.
A piece of you was left & lost with them.
But like the The Flower,
growing stronger by the hour...

a little at a time
a little over time
but it "does" get stronger...
over time.

Let the season past
allow the pieces lost to be gone
allow yourself to move on.

"The Flower's" strength comes from
its resilience. It wants to grow.

You have to "want" to grow.
You have to "want" to move on.
You have to "want" to be strong.

Like "The Flower".

Help, if you can

Hey all,

I have a friend on Facebook, who is acquainted with someone in California that had property stolen. Here is the tweet from twitter:

joshnewtonphoto=( just had $9,000 worth of camera equipment stolen out of my house yesterday... pls re-Tweet and keep a look out at pawn shops and online =(

If you're a Twitter can pass it along, that would be great! If not and just could pass the word along to pawn shops that you know, that would help too. It was $9000 worth of photographer's equipment that a lot of us are trying to help this person find.

Thanks all

"So how do you flush this new fangle bowl,Chase?"

"Oh, my gosh! You should have seen the look on your face!"
"Did you REALLY think I would!"
"Ooooh, hooo, hooo, wooo, hooo!"

Balloon Festival July 2009

I have been trying to get to this balloon festival the past three years. I finally got to go this year! It was a nice experience. I have other shot on another memory card I need to add (I promised the models; a father & daughter who were visiting)..."stayed tuned."

Here comes the Paaain!!!

I was an escort for my son's class visit to a water park in Salem, NH where I got these editted (I had enough to make a movie clip, if I wanted) images. Watch the girl in the blue shirt on far right whom, I am guessing, NEVER saw this ride before.
