An Ordinary Day in Medford in May

While checking out the herring run, (you can read more about the details here), we saw these beautiful birds and other creatures. It’s amazing how you can catch quiet moments and simple, inspiring moments in nature, with these birds, fish, and reptiles carrying on their migrations, feedings, and natural life cycles, not too far from a bustling city like Boston. I’m new to capturing flying and swimming friends. It’s quite challenging. I took a few liberties with some blurred moments, trying to create an abstract feel. Maybe I’m not up for the wildlife challenge-yet! I will be posting some more soon on my revamped Instagram, @loweaperture. More news about that soon.

A Little Haiku Camera in Acton

I’m happy to announce my photographs are on display at the Wellness at Villageworks in West Acton, MA. There is something different about these photos; they are printed on Japanese paper, or washi. I used coated bamboo paper, suggested by Lauren Pearlman, from Paper Connection International, which ran through an Epson quite smoothly. Many thanks to Zen Saito, who helped print these photos. Of course I am always indebted to my incredible husband, who is always so unbelievably supportive.

Madbird’s Wallet

I’m in the market for a new wallet, and stumbled across this from Madbird:

Madbird’s Wallet for Patterns and Tools

It’s a pattern wallet, with an anti-glare vinyl so you can clearly read your patterns. I love this printed pattern, and although it may not be your traditional money holder, I love the concept. No, I am not a knitter, but there must be something I can organize in here!

They have a great tagline, have been featured in many knitting publications, and are locals, near the Boston area. Check them out!
