I had the opportunity to capture a variety of dramatic images of Artistic Director John Yankee conducting the Falmouth Chorale & Orchestra performing The Creation by Franz Joseph Haydn. Concerts were held on March 16th and 17th to packed houses at the Falmouth Academy in Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Here are a few of my favorites, reflecting the many facets of the emotionally-charged connection between conductor, chorus and orchestra as they interpreted this well-loved oratorio celebrating the creation of world.

When most photographers think about having some fun shooting, they usually think about driving somewhere. But it’s good to remember that sometimes… there’s no place like home. Well, near home anyway, especially on Cape Cod.

I’m grateful that Falmouth owned Peterson Farm is just across the street. I escaped for a few hours this afternoon, walking over to the farm with my camera and favorite lens (Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II). It was one of the first warm, sunny days we’ve had this spring. Capturing images of the sheep and goats at Peterson Farm is a special treat in spring since so many newly born lambs are romping around.

Here are 6 of my favorite photographs.

The Falmouth Art Center’s Fall Juried Show opened last Friday. Both of my photographs, along with 10 others, were selected to be part of this competitive show of 88 works of art. And I’m delighted that “Wave Catcher” was awarded “Best Photograph!”

“Wave Catcher” is one of many images selected by the little girl’s mother from her extended family’s portrait session held at Old Silver Beach in Falmouth, Cape Cod last summer. She especially adored this one since it so aptly reflected the free and adventurous spirit of her beautiful daughter.

During the visit to the center, I also discovered that “Afternoon Fog” – my other entry – is one of a handful of pieces selected by the Falmouth Garden Club. A club member will create a floral interpretation to be unveiled at the “Petals and Palettes” awards reception held Sunday, October 9 from 2 to 4 PM at the Falmouth Art Center . I hope that many of my friends and fans will be able to attend.

Romping on the beach with 4-year-old triplet boys at a North Falmouth beach was a fun challenge earlier this week. What delightful cutie pies. Not surprisingly, the boys had little interest in sitting or standing poses. But their personalities came alive whenever they were asked to hug or jump or run… especially into Mom and Dad’s arms. Thanks Krista and John for asking me to capture memories of your family’s fun times on Cape Cod!

One of my favorite places to walk is around Oyster Pond (on which we reside), in the Quissett area of Falmouth, onto the bike path at Surf Drive overlooking Vineyard Sound.  It’s particularly fun on a foggy spring day, when everything is fresh and green, and the summer crowds have yet to arrive. Usually accompanying me is my Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-105 “walk around” lens, or my tiny “just in case” Canon SD700 tucked into my pocket. The point-and-shoot does a remarkably good job under non-challenging situations, capturing all but one of the photographs below. Can you guess which ones?

On Sunday I gave myself an assignment of playing with motion to create abstract photographs. Here are some favorites images I created at home and during a walk around the Falmouth village green on a beautiful, sunny Sunday.

While still photography is “my thing,” I’m beginning to enjoy creating videos of favorite places, people and pets. Here’s a one-minute video of  Trunk River which connects Oyster Pond (on which we reside) with the Vineyard Sound. While the river is tiny, its role is huge since it ensures the health of the pond and makes it possible for herring to return and spawn each year.
