I had a go at shooting water drops today. It works very well using a flash and umbrella.

Milton Lower Falls

I went to the Milton Lower Falls Dam on MLK Day. The mill pond behind the dam is mostly frozen over, and the spillway was covered with ice and snow, with the water flowing under the ice.

Quincy photowalk

After a long overdue haircut, I went on a photowalk in Quincy.

The first stop was near Marina Bay. It was very cold on the water, and the tide was in. This crane is at the edge of a marsh that is exposed during low tide.

Next stop was this tower on a little spit of land attached to Squaw Rock Park at the tip of Squantum. The breakwater leading to the tower is just underwater from the high tide.

Next, I went to the Sailors Home Cemetery in Wollaston. It holds at least 119 Civil War sailors and Marines that lived on and farmed 6 1/2 acres after the war.

Miranda Auto Sensorex EE

I got this camera several months ago at a yard sale for $10. It's a nifty thing, built like a brick.
