    As the Halloween season approached, the perfect place to visit was Salem – home of the witch trials.  While we didn’t see any witches, warlocks, or goblins there were plenty of seasonal decorations along with the beauty of another New England town.  Just a few photos from Salem here: An eagle outside the entrance to the Hawthorne Hotel Cupola on the old Custom House Another eagle, this one on the Custom House An overall view of the Custom House A […]

The unmanned working […]

    I’ve been a bit remiss lately in keeping this site current and posting new photos (with the exception of the last few days).  Things have been a bit hectic since the first of the year and while photo opportunities have not diminished, the time needed to process and post them has been more limited.  I’m going to try to get a better and post more frequently, sharing both images and a few comments or suggestions along the way.
