Not the prettiest of sunsets, though not bad for a chilly January first morning. Initially it looked to be a bust, but the clouds parted a bit and the sun shone brightly through. Happy New Year wishes. I hope the coming year brings you much love, joy, happiness, and peace ❤

The Man at the Wheel with interesting clouds on another beautiful late December day.
Dusting of snow along the back of Anna Hyatt Huntington’s superb Joan of Arc WWI memorial, such a multifaceted muse and Gloucester landmark.
Whatever brings you there– artist, subject, sculpture, setting, history –its surplus of qualities alone and together reward gaze and inquiry. I took several photographs early December 30th, careful compositions against a gift of blues and vault of morning sky. For this one, I roughly edited out the telephone wires for my thoughts. Shake off 2016 and frame up a fresh start for the year ahead!

Every New Year we think about what we are going to do less of…drink less, eat less, be less lazy. This year I’m all about MORE! I’m ready for MORE positivity, MORE adventures, MORE sunrises and sunsets, MORE laughter, MORE fun, MORE patience, MORE gratitude and just living life MORE. So my wish to everyone for 2017 is MORE!
They Can’t Take It Away From Us Now! Congratulations to the plungers and thanks to those who donated to Open Door!

The race out of the water-
In the books!
