Catalina State Park Hike

With the recent snow on the ground, I decided to go hiking at Catalina State Park in Tucson, AZ. The park has beautiful scenery and trails into the mountains. The streams were running and all the saguaros were covered in snow. I took my parent’s dog Caesar for company and I think he had as good a time as I did.

Snow in the Desert

As most of you know, Tucson and Phoenix received a few inches of snow on Wednesday. It is ┬árare to see snow in the lower elevations of Arizona. Thank goodness I hadn’t packed away my snow clothes from Boston. As the snow fell, I went out into the backyard with my camera and dogs to take some photographs. It was so quiet and beautiful.

Visit Walden Pond

As I will be moving back to Arizona in a couple of weeks, a friend of mine suggested we visit Walden Pond this weekend. The pond is only a fifteen minute drive from my apartment in Waltham, MA. It was a beautiful day for a walk around the lake and a great way to spend a lazy Saturday.

Pandora in the Snow

As a graduate with a degree in Classics, I have always loved Greek and Roman myths. I have taken on the personal project of recreating these myths in photo form. I am currently in the final stages of the myth of Apollo and Daphne, but this last weekend, I wanted to get started on a new myth and I chose to portray the myth of Pandora. As that is still in the early stages, I thought I would share with you the photos that I took later, just for fun.

Tristan in the Snow

Last weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a little boy named Tristan and his family for their family Christmas card. We met at the Frog Pond in the Boston Common. Dressed in his holiday coat, Tristan was off like a bullet and I just tried to keep up.
