Goals for 2016: Photography, writing, and business

Rain drops close up

It’s New Year’s Day 2016. Today we flip the calendar page and begin another year. Here in Maine, the weather has been mild in December. Until this week’s storm, we had no snow. I believe I join many who would be just fine without snow, or cold, and could roll right into spring from here. […]

Design in lobby of Chrysler building
