Horse Landscapes Revisted

I was teaching the photography class that I teach after school last week and was showing the kids my own work. After school all I could think about was how many hours and how many photos I had taken in all my years of college... and how I'd gotten so lazy.
I took my camera to the barn the next morning and was re inspired. I realized my lens is cracked... BUT! I ordered a new one! Can't wait

"I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse."

Oak Bluffs in early summer

I've abandoned my camera for almost as long... winter has turned to summer and a new chapter of Island life begins.

Outside

First post in awhile, because I abandoned my camera for a long time... but it snowed tonight. When you look at lighted houses from outside during a snow, it is the most interesting feeling of being a stranger looking in, or one of the animals that exist on our periphery.  Peaceful but also sometimes lonely.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

Formatting Issues!

Blogger has changed its format and layout options since I last posted, and some of my older posts have become distorted/cropped etc.
Does anyone have any insight into how I can fix this besides re posting all of those images?

Haystack Creations

This fall I was blessed enough to earn a scholarship to the MassArt alumni trip to the Haystack school in Deer Isle, ME. (www.haystack-mtn.org)
For the final two days I made creatures out of trash, intending to do an outdoor installation that spoke to our impact on the natural world, the permanence of plastic etc.
I ended up making short stop animations of each one, beginning to get their personalities to come out!
The animation is done with imotion, a stop animation app from Apple.
