Not Dead Yet....

Just wanted to sneak in here and let everyone know I haven't disappeared, though I'm sure it seems it.
I have just finished the special edition of "Behind the Walls" and will be hosting a book night at the West Springfield Public Library. Visit the Facebook page for "Behind the Walls" for more details or to request a copy of the special edition. There are only 50 copies available so if you can't make it to the event, get your requests in early!

First Wedding Shoot

This past November I shot my first official wedding. A gift to friends, I spent a great day shooting Cat and Dave as they got ready, arrived at the church, said their vows, and celebrated with friends. Cat's dress and general theme were inspired by a 1940's photo of her grandmother and the wedding was carried away on a vintage feel complete with peacock feather fans, men in hats, and "Zoot Suit Riot".

Stay tuned for more!

Looking Out and Getting In

My long anticipated first visit to Connecticut's Kirkbride was well worth it. It was by far one of the most photogenic locations I have ever visited.

The Knight Hospital

My third trip to Henry Knight's hospital in Connecticut was undoubtedly the most successful. I managed to see and photograph more of the campus than ever. Enjoy these few and view the rest of the set on Flickr.

Going Green

In spite of the rain my most recent visit to Grafton proved to be one of the best so far in my own humble opinion. I was happy with almost every shot I took and I feel like these give the non-explorer a better sense of Grafton. Enjoy!

The End Comes Slowly

Every time I think I'm finished at Northampton State Hospital I wind up back there, again with Abandoned Reflections and T.C. Photo. There isn't much left to see but what is left seems to be turning into a sad reminder of what once was.

Speechless.... Breathless....

For my third trip to this hospital I took along my new regular partner in crime, Abandoned Reflections, to see if we could find the fabled hydrotherapy room.
This is the set that resulted from that day.
I however am holding onto my shots of the hydrotherapy room-
a room that left me utterly, and literally speechless when I finally saw it.
Second edition of the book however...
