Lighting Up An Awesome Race

On Wednesday I raced at the regular Wednesday night mountain bike race as I usually do and I had the honor of having my mom and girlfriend Marina cheer for me and support me. I was feeling good and my bike is one point right now with new brake pads and fresh rubber so I started hard at the front. I had a great start and a great race over all even though I slowly got picked off by some of the fastest riders in the state. I rode super hard and had a lot of fun!

Marina is a photographer like me, we often go on photography adventures, and she snapped some great photos of me and the scenery surrounding the race. The light was very special after the race as the sun started to set, everything was glowing orange! With light like that it is always awesome but tricky to take good photos and Marina got some amazing shots.

Spring and Sugaring!

Here are some photos that I took through out the spring as the sap was running and the buds were popping. The last snow storms were coming and melting. Fire was magically turning sap into gold. Mother’s day flowers adorned the kitchen table.

Catamount Race

Recently I had to skip a Wednesday night mountain bike race at Catamount Outdoor Center because my energy stores and breathing ability were plagued with a nasty cold. After being in bed all day I ventured outside to take some pictures of the race and to get some much needed fresh air.

As I went in search of some good photo spots on the course I realized that I would be fighting swarms of man eating mosquitoes and receding light held back by the thick forest.

I found a few good spots and managed to take some good photos using the camera’s built in flash between jumping around to avoid the vicious bugs! Below are some of the best ones.

I have more and if you are trying to find a picture of yourself, contact me and I’ll send you more photos.

Boston

I spent the day in Boston recently and, on a beautiful New England day, I felt Boston waking up. From the icy cold depths of winter emerged energy, excitement, and Bostonian enthusiasm and strength.

The streets were teaming with people strolling at a leisurely pace that would normally rush from oasis of warmth to chalet of coziness. People taking time to talk and to watch. Roars echoing from the crowds surrounding street performers auditioning for a spot on the streets this summer. Street performers were everywhere and there were some awesome acts! Skaters down by the water were shredding and filming and having a great time. People and dogs were out enjoying the day as spring began to emerge around the city. It was a wonderful day and the city was glowing.

I had a great time behind the lens in the city looking for action, details, stories, and the grandness of the city of Boston.

Peeper Season

A few days ago I got inspired to shoot some video of spring beginning to bloom as I walked outside with Marina. We took turns taking videos of pretty much anything we saw and then I edited this video together. As you watch this video, think of watching photography instead of a video depicting an action. That way you will be expecting the art of photography instead of something captured on video. I am impressed with how it came out and I am inspired to do more experimenting with video!
