"What a way to spend the day!"

This past weekend on Saturday, August 24, 2013, I got to spend the day kayaking on the beautiful and calm Lower Mystic River in Arlington, Massachusetts with my brother. It was a wonderful experience and the weather was absolutely wonderful!

I hope, during the last few days of summer, I get to kayak there again. In the meantime,  here are some the small select of what I would consider the "best of" shots I was able to capture during our excursion that day.

Remember, if there are any images that you see that would like to purchase or need a photographic eye to capture that special moment, event, location or commercial shot too, please feel free to contact for a quote at


Hooksett Block Party

Party, party, party! The town of Hooksett, New Hampshire had a block party on Tuesday, August 20, 2103. What an event. It was a event full of fun, food and refreshment as well as games for the children. All this fun and excitement would not have been possible if it where not for the aid of some sponsors like 95.7 WZID radio station and so many other sponsors as well.  Here are a few (of many) photos from the event. While I have not include all the photographs from that day, there are photos of sponsors, guests and vendors, who either sponsored or provided the food, drinks and entertainment for children. They all helped make the block party and the day itself, be entertaining, fun, and even you can say...well...delicious because food and refreshments were exactly that delicious!
If you would like to see all the photos taken, please visit my online gallery at Deviant Art with a folder specifically for photos along with some of my other work as well. Just following (or copy and paste) this link:
