Kimball Farm Ice Cream Westford MA

Posted in Editorial, Food by harkinsphoto on July 30, 2015



What would be a better way to treat yourself in a heat wave.

I did some shooting recently for an article about ice cream and other cool treats.

First stop was Kimball Farm in Westford MA with ice cream manager Jill Curran making the traditional Kimball Special banana split.

Finish this and you can’t eat for a week.

Look for the article “Deep Freeze” by writer Liz Michalski in the July/August issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine.

More treats to come.

Thrillers, Fillers and Spillers Flower Deck Containers

Posted in Editorial, Landscape by harkinsphoto on July 10, 2015


Writer Susan Mitchell gives tips and direction for enhancing the deck with her article in Merrimack Valley Magazine Home.

Thriller is the focal point flower pot with structural and tall plants.  Fillers add mass to the container and placed around the Thriller.

Spillers spill over the pot and soften the edges. Thanks Susan for educating a tough student.
