More Catching Up / Autumn 2019

It is amazing how quickly time and the seasons progress in New England.  When I last posted I covered our eventful September trip to Ireland. I returned with a mass of beautiful images requiring careful attention and an injured heart that demanded my dedication to an intense program of cardiac rehabilitation.  With help, I have been easing into more regular activity and, of course, that means photography.

  This year, our fall colors were full and seemed to extend longer than usual. Without asking permission of my rehab team, I decided that at least a few brief explorations of the autumn foliage would be therapeutic. I felt guilty about canceling my annual fall foliage weekend workshop and decided that, as an apology, I would get together with those who had already signed up for a friendly morning shoot to some of my favorite local foliage locations. My weekend workshops can be exhausting, but I had a great time with friends exploring one of our perfect autumn days.  We covered a surprisingly wide range of sites and, despite the fact that we didn’t get back until about 3PM, I required only a short nap to recover.

I have been doing better and was able to teach my Introduction to Digital Photography course in November, and I’m excited about a very full set of classes this spring. More about the schedule in my next blog.



The fall colors were great, and despite a general paucity of snow, the winter has provided the usual photographic opportunities, but my daughter has provided a miraculous distract of an entirely different kind.

The "Bear Cub" 

Our first grandchild, Owen Emerson Bryant was born on October 6th.  Despite his impressive name, the little “bear cub” came crashing into the world at only 5Lbs 13 Oz, but he has filled out nicely.  Obviously, he has filled us with an abundance of excitement and pride – especially Susan, who has for years been desperate for a grandchild.  It has been wonderful to follow Owen’s early development and watch our daughter transform into an amazing mother.  Of course, I must mention that our son-in-law Grayson has been an equally loving and dotting father.




It should be obvious what will be consuming my time, and my pixels, over the next few years, to perhaps several decades.  Abby and Grayson live a little less than 2 hours away and we will continue to search for any excuse visit our grandson.  You must agree that the harried parents deserve a night off, or perhaps a day or two.



I am sure I will continue to commune with the unique beauty of New England and, since Abby and Grayson don’t want their child to become fodder for Facebook’s media mill, I will be restricting my postings to mountains, trees and such.

It will drive me crazy, but I promised to be good - at least until Owen graduates from Dartmouth!

  1. You should see how my colleague Wesley Virgin's biography begins in this SHOCKING and controversial video.

    As a matter of fact, Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he revealed hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get anything they want.

    THESE are the exact same SECRETS many celebrities (notably those who "became famous out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You've heard that you only use 10% of your brain.

    Mostly, that's because most of your BRAINPOWER is UNTAPPED.

    Perhaps this conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain about seven years back, while riding an unlicensed, trash bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and with $3 on his banking card.

    "I'm so frustrated with living payroll to payroll! Why can't I become successful?"

    You've taken part in those types of thoughts, isn't it so?

    Your very own success story is going to be written. You just have to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
