Summer Flowers 2009

MASSACHUSETTS — I can’t seem to get enough of flower pictures. The bright colors and whimsical styles often make for interesting pictures. This was going to be my last full Summer in Massachusetts; I moved to Ohio the following June. Here are the flowers of my last full New England Summer.

Summer Flowers 2008

MASSACHUSETTS — Here’s a collection of photos from the Summer of 2008. These all feature flowers and a few include bees or even a fly. I don’t remember the specifics of where they were taken, but I am confident they’re all from the Southcoast Massachusetts area.

Boston Common

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS — I was downtown in Boston in early July 2008 when I took a stroll through Boston Common. I took pictures of some of the birds and flowers. There were several swans swimming in the lake. A bunch of ducks were also in the water though quite a few were walking around. Most…

While sitting in the car, waiting for him to finish up with his business, I found myself somewhat transfixed with their landscaped flowers. The next time he had a meeting in…

Little Yellow Bug

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — Back in early July 2007 I was crawling around my yard with a macro lens and some magnification filters. I was curious if I could get a neat picture out of the many clover flowers with this new lens and filter setup. I found this particular clover flower with a tiny…
