I covered this year's Arlington Open Studios for Icons of Arlington. It was cool getting to see the work of so many local artists and craftspeople! Check it out.
New outfit? Check. Fixed your toaster? Yup. Know where to compost your food scraps now? That's right. I covered this combination clothing swap/repair clinic put on by some local organizations over on Icons of Arlington.
"Wait," you say, "Ray, didn't you already write about the Arlington Reservoir?" Yes, I did. But there are actually two Arlington Reservoirs in Arlington. This is the other one.
Last June I went to San Juan on a stipend from VII Photo Agency to do a documentary photography project about disability in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria. You can see/read the project elsewhere on my website. Here are some non-project photos I took while I was there, either on adventures alone …
Last week I shot Somerville's annual marshmallow fluff festival, "What the Fluff," for the Somerville Journal. See all the photos on their site at WickedLocal.
I covered Arlington's annual Town Day for Icons of Arlington. It was just as colorful as I remembered it being when I was a kid. See all the photos here.
Arlington resident Jeffrey Alexander loves astronomy so much he shares his telescope with everyone in the summer. I went to one of his stargazing events last week. Read about it on Icons of Arlington.
The Arlington Reservoir recently closed for the season. I went to the last day, where dogs are allowed in the water. I wrote about the reservoir, and a little about the dogs, on Icons of Arlington.
I've been writing about a lot of bodies of water lately. Here's my Icons of Arlington on Spy Pond.
Here's a throwback from last year: Casey and I went to Kelly's Diner in Ball Square, and I'd just gotten a 24-70 and was excited to take some wide-angle shots for once. The light in Kelly's is at least as good as the food. And Casey's hair has gotten so long since then!
