This weekend has been a very long one. I spent most of the weekend behind the camera. It all began with a small post-birthday party for my friend Peter, set in a candle lit train car. Friday was also a small Holyoke Pixel Club meeting. I sat listening carefully to stories of Holyoke and the existence of the rail system in Holyoke. I was given a rare opportunity to photograph inside a building that is home to some massive train engines. I could spend a few days in there and come out with a pretty impressive body of work. Especially if I had the presence of the employees that work within this building. The talk of a photo documentary came up. Something I am hoping to have the chance to do.
Saturday I got together with some family in Connecticut. Had a pre Thanksgiving in which I took the opportunity to photograph and do some creative portraits. Saturday night I made my way to Northampton for a little while. I endeared the cold with a friend and walked around and made a few photographs. Some of which I am proud to place in my collection of Northampton photographs, as part of my project.
Sunday, I again made my way up to Northampton. I had a portrait shoot set up with a very fun individual that I some times photograph based on her interesting style. I also took the time before the shoot to make a few photographs that I knew would make a wonderful addition to my Northampton Project. The energy in Northampton was very positive and relaxing. At one point I walked by a group of girls from Smith who were singing Christmas Carols. And yes, I did snap a photo of that.
Although I did shoot quite a lot this weekend, I will not be posting anything up until tomorrow. I am feeling a little bit under the weather and after all the energy and work I have put in this weekend. I am ready to get a good nights rest.
I just wanted to thank Peter from Rambling Van Dog for the privilege he granted me Friday night. Thank you Peter.
