I have been weeks behind scanning, processing, and blogging. A few weeks ago, I took a hike to the top of Newton Hill in Worcester, MA. Aside from the fact that it has a rather indescribable 18 hole disc golf course, the only one in Worcester, it is truly a beautiful spot. I took the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash with me.
Naturally, graffiti people had to raid this tower. But, in color, it really works.
I have always really hated rock pictures. I just don’t get it. But, this was a great opportunity to clip on the #13 close up attachment. It actually gives it shallow depth of field, and the illusion of shooting with fast glass.
In December of 2008, Worcester County was devastated by a terrible ice storm, for which the area’s infrastructure and public works folks were poorly prepared, if at all. These trees seem to have been damaged, yet are growing nicely, horizontally. On a better day, with maybe some better lighting (New England lighting is harsh and bluish), this might be a great place to return on a photowalk.
