The market is open on Saturday’s every week all year round and on Tuesday mornings in the summer. It’s such an interesting place. I had the idea of going there today to check out the hats people wear there. Instead I got caught up in how the locals and the tourists don’t interact and that […]

It snowed again last night. Woke up to two inches of fluff. I felt a little claustrophobic as I couldn’t see the mountains that surround my home. They were covered in fog or snow and were totally not visible. As morning progressed I could tell that the snow would melt away or disintegrate. I’m not […]

During this time of year in New Mexico, there are Art Crawls every weekend. Yesterday, it was Dixon’s turn. I picked up Susan and a new friend, Jay, dropped Riley off at Paw’s Plaza, her adorable day care place, and off we went. It was a gorgeous drive, at times along the Rio Grande. The […]

Today, I walked around and explored color and people. I was mostly in the Rail Yard District where I was happy to find a few downtown Aspens in full glory. Then, I came home and pruned all the russian sage in my yard… what an intense fragrance. I’m lightheaded! I’ve been meeting interesting people, we […]

    Hi Janet so glad to hear things are going well for you. Love the pictures. Petra & I were at the wayland house cleaning today. It still seems like it is your house. The new people are very nice. They are taking very good care of the house. They really like it there. Miss you & Riley. LisaReplyCancel

The truth of the matter is, I have hundreds of photos to share since the end of July and I don’t know where to start.  I’m stuck. I edit, I compile, I group them but it doesn’t seem to work. Suffice to say that I moved from Wayland at the beginning of August, spent time […]

    Beautiful! You are an artist with a great eye…human portraits or nature. Keep sharing; really like what you’re doing. (And I’m a Porsche fan…and owner of an older Boxster.)ReplyCancel

On my way to the Cape to spend time with Helen and Andy, Danielle and Lyddie. They graciously let me take refuge from my exhausting move in their guesthouse for over a week. They pampered me and fed me gourmet meals and we drank excellent wine. We played mahjong and Danielle clearly was the most […]

    Your photographs are extraordinary! The arrived just in time for me to use one or more of them to paint a watercolor landscape for a class I’m taking this summer. I think I’ll do the one of people at the beach first. It sounds like you’re having a great old time and living the life. Stay in touch and keep the photos coming.ReplyCancel

I moved out of 8 Webster Lane yesterday and as I backed up I took one last photo. My amazing cleaning women, Lisa and Petra had just arrived to polish up the lovely girl one last time. It was such a pretty morning. I thought I might get emotional, but I wasn’t. Not yet anyway. […]

Wendy and I met Seth at the same time, at her first trip to Bridge Over Troubled Waters in Boston. I’ve been volunteering there since 2009, photographing the clients, giving them a ‘face’.  This was Seth’s first day at Bridge, the excitement and nervousness was there but we knew he was special. Seth passed away […]

Dear Lauren, Today is such an emotional day. I am so shaken by the horrific event that took your life. I meet so many beautiful young adults and they all mean so much to me. I remember them, all of them. You were special. Your session was emotional and I wish you were here to […]

  • A nice, touching photo tribute to someone taken way too young. Thanks for sharing.

    RIP Lauren.ReplyCancel

  • Thank you so much, Janet, for sharing these gorgeous pictures of Lauren. We’ve been glued to Brooklyn’s review of the trial on Patch and it’s nice to take a respite from the ugly to see such innate beauty.ReplyCancel

  • Janet, you captured Lauren’s sweet little Angel Face – thank you for posting this emotional tribute.ReplyCancel

  • Such a beautiful girl inside and out as I can see from the photos.

Decided to take a ride to the North Shore today. I’m surrounded by trees where I live and am anxious to explore the coast of Massachusetts. I’ve spent plenty of time on the Cape (south shore) and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. The ‘other’ Cape offers a gorgeous coastline. These images were taken […]
