FOR LINDA, THE MARCO'S

You are right Linda, I have photographed The Demarco's several times, actually I recall posting an image of the store earlier on my blog. This version is my favourite. I made this picture a long time ago in the mid seventies so I thought it might be a good idea to show this image.Here is the link to my earlier posting of the Demarco's.

DOWNTOWN, MANCHESTER, NH

After our late breakfast we took a walk around the downtown of Manchester. It was a very dark grey day but I made afew pictures, which I thought might make some good images. I always like reflections so I took this picture because I was attracted by the polyphony of textures, shapes  and colours.

RED ARROW DINER, MANCHESTER, NH

On our way to Boston we stopped for a late breakfast at the very popular diner the Red Arrow in Manchester, New Hampshire. This diner has been in business since 1922. The only difference with today is that most of the clients are on their cell phones. A little sad because nobody really talks to each other anymore.

EARLY MORNING FOG, JOHNSBURY,VT


The first day we stayed overnight in the town of Johnsbury,Vt Our hotel was just outside of town surrounded by three highways, so not a great place for interesting images. But I always like a challenge so before breakfast I walked in the area and made a few pictures which I liked. This early morning image of fog rising from the river is one of them. I like the gritty look of some of Bill Brand's landscapes so I simply increased contrast and grain.

MOUNTAINS, NEW HAMPSHIRE

It has been quite awhile since my last posting. The Winter was really getting to me and I guess I simply went into hibernation, but Spring has arrived. Last week we made road trip to Boston. We had a great time and the trip restarted my interest in taking pictures again. The first few days of Travel through Vermont and New Hampshire were dark and grey but interesting because of the great dramatic skies like this image taken in the New Hampshire mountains.
