In Part 1 (here) we looked at the best of my work in the early part of the year. Here we'll continue from May on.
Medfield State Hospital
This one, from a junkyard near Albany NY in May. Feeling bad, this was six weeks before I had open-heart surgery, weak and easily winded. I wrote about photographing in junkyards and my forty years of experience: here.
Peaked Hill, Chilmark, MA, the highest spot on Martha's Vineyard, in June.
In Lawrence, MA in August in a diner.
By October and November, I was photographing at Lake Dennison Recreation Area in Winchendon, MA. The Miller River cuts through the park.
In December I continued at Lake Dennison until the gates were closed for the season near Christmas.
That about sums it up, 2021. I tend to think in terms of "before surgery" and "after surgery" in that some priorities are a little different now. While still highly motivated to make work I think less of how my work will be accepted and more of what peace and pleasure it brings me. If that, in turn, brings something good to your days then it is all for the better. Certainly, I am less for the noise and more for the quiet these days.
