Photos: Winter Weather In Boston.

We’ve had a mild winter in Boston up until this week, when winter storm Juno dumped two feet of snow on the city. It’s made getting around town a bit more chaotic than usual, but it’s nice to see, and made for a peaceful few days off. 

Here are a few snowy scenes I shot of Fenway Park and surrounding areas. Just for fun!

Here are a few shots of the preparations around the park for Frozen Fenway 2014. It’s shaping up to be a pretty neat event!

Campus deer population thinned over Winter break

 

"A herd of deer run through Goucher College's snowy wooded campus Wednesday, February 9, 2011."

Goucher College carried out a round of decreases in the deer population on campus this Winter. Follow The Quindecim in print and online this week for a more in-depth article about the decrease.

There are many strong opinions about Goucher’s deer population. Here is a statement from 2007 written by Goucher’s President, Sanford Ungar.

I’d rather leave mine out of it and reflect on this photograph instead.

Sometimes, photography is strange and you stumble onto things that you had no previous intentions of seeing. After I got out of my car which I parked at the edge of Goucher’s South Lot last Wednesday afternoon, I realized I was being watched by these four deer (or dare I say, survivors.)

I had my camera and a short lens on me, so I tried to quietly approach them. They all ran except the one in the center of this photograph. She stopped, turned around, and gave me one good stare before disappearing into the woods.

21 Years.

If someone had taken this exact photograph 21 years ago to date, the ground would have been covered in snow and the leaves would have all been gone.

My mom reminded me this year that, on the day after I was born, she could see snow on the ground outside her hospital window as she ate Thanksgiving dinner.

I wanted to snap this photograph so I had a record of what a beautiful day it was on my birthday this year.

It’s been a great 21 years!
