I don’t care much for year-in-review stories and remembrances, so I thought I’d do mine. 2010 was a great year and I photographed many things for the first time. I’ve always wanted to see a bear, so I was thrilled when one came to visit Somerville. My friend Walter Choroszewski made it possible for us to visit Alaska for a near non-stop photo adventure. A neighbor in Woodstock, Vermont, gave me access to her family property to photograph the water, trees and vistas. It was a good year for weddings as friends and family got married. And I made a special effort to observe what is good in my life and looking back I can see there is plenty of goodness around when I take the time to look.
