Each morning I take a photograph with my iPhone using a program called Everyday to capture what the start of the day looks like at Shipyard Park in Mattapoisett, MA. I post these images to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ where they consistently get many thumbs up and comments. In fact, if I miss a day or 2, people get worried and email me often tongue in cheek complaining that their day got off to a rotten start without the image of Shipyard Park.
I have been taking photographs since I was about 10 years old and I’ve always been interested in using the media to capture time and place. The Everyday iPhone app is great because in addition to helping to set up the photo each morning, it also creates these cool little movies like this one for 2011. Enjoy.

Alright, it’s mid February and the winter doldrums probably have you down a bit. Here’s a perfect educational boondoggle if there ever was one. The School of Visual Arts has a study aboard program which offers Action Surf Photography in Rincon Puerto Rico from March 5 – 13.
Pack your camera bag dude! Surf’s up! (Good luck getting your parents to pay for this)

Imagine after a lovely scuba dive you return to the surface to find that the anchor line of your boat has parted and your ride home is no more. :(
What do you do? Take some pictures, of course. :)
You are miraculously rescued by a passing boat :D
which then capsizes on the way back to port :(
and your camera is lost. :(
Then four years later somebody walking the beach finds your camera! :D
Here are the pictures and interview.

Sadly it’s the end of summer! I guess it’s time to “dive” into school and work!

Every week, Pictory exhibits a different theme and this week it’s titled In Deep. Here’s what they have to say:
Bodies of water bring us comfort, euphoria, life.
Most of my happiest memories involve water. Water is the fundamental precursor of life and one of our most valuable resources, but most of us don’t think of it that way. We think of failed attempts to water ski and boiling hot days. Days at the beach or floats down the river. Water and heat work together to give us excuses to detach, relax, and forget. Soak it up.
Check out the images and short captions. They are always awesome. The cool thing about Pictory is that you can contribute to it too! So check out their upcoming themes and join in the fun. Who knows, your image and story might make it in. Good luck!
I love photography.
I love the sea.
This is the camera for me.
Jettisoning my horrible haiku, this is a cool camera.
From the great photography blog PetaPixel:
Back in 1971, StarKist tuna sold promotional cameras in the shape of StarKist mascot Charlie the Tuna for $4.95 and three StarKist can labels. The camera, manufactured by Whitehouse Products, takes 126 cartridge film and accepts flashcubes on top of its head.
If you’re a collector, KEH Camera is selling a used Charlie Tuna camera for $79.

If you are a photographer, you’re probably familiar with the term photowalking. Well, I have a couple little kids learning about the excitement of photography and we call it photoddling. It’s a fun activity and a great way to create an appreciation for art, nature and community. Of course, we’re working on a website.
Here’s a couple of shots from the other night.
