I’ve been getting my photography “out and about,” as they say, and have recently sold a few pieces. I have a few nice old car and truck pics on the walls of Chef Rob Watson’s Lone Wolf Bistro in Amherst, MA, and a few of the young ladies I’ve shot at horse jumping meets have purchased prints.
It’s not enough to pay the bills yet (I’m still digging food out of the cracks in my kitchen floor) but it’s all moving in the right direction.
I currently have a show up at Elmer’s Store, Restaurant and Gallery up in Ashfield. It’s broadly Autumnal themed, designed to coincide with the town’s great Ashfield Fall Festival which runs this Saturday and Sunday. If you’re in the area and have a chance to visit, please do – I highly recommend their breakfasts, especially the hash – yum! ‘ll be on their walls for most of October.
For those of you who don’t live close enough to visit, I’m posting the show’s ten photos here (hey, it’s a virtual world, non? ) for your viewing pleasure.
All of these shots have appeared here before, but never as a group.

Or better yet, stop by Elmer’s Store for a great meal and a look-see.
And now I’m off to photograph some rock climbing adventures.
A Freak Of Nature. May 3, 2012Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature, macro photos.

Here’s a wildflower which I at first thought was a Yellow Trillium, but now believe to be an uncommon variation on our standard local red trillium:
…as witness its intergrowing with the more common red variety.
True “Yellow trilliums” are pure yellow, while this variant has reddish veins throughout:
Regardless, it’s beautiful, and apparently popular with the local invertibrates as well:
These I found up at McLeod Pond up in Colrain, MA and captured with Ziggy, my 50mm Sigma macro lens.
