On Location with Kona Ice 4U

Posted in Editorial, Food by harkinsphoto on August 24, 2015



So with the assignment “Deep Freeze” for Merrimack Valley Magazine by writer Liz Michalski I headed to the Haverhill Kids Art Fest back in May.

There I met with Bill DiBona of Kona Ice 4 U and he was busy, using almost 350 pounds of ice that day.

Kona Ice is not just a snow cone it is practically snow itself by a special cutting process, then you just add the flavor.

Check out the article in the July/August Merrimack Valley Magazine.

Andover Optical with John Simko, Jennifer Simko-Lochiatto and Stan Bukowiec at their Main St. Andover office.

Stan has been helping me choose my frames for as long as I can remember.

This was an ad shoot for Merrimack Valley Magazine but I like these outtakes and the change to black and white.

Sure you might think they are just a popsicle but then you try one and everything changes.

Get to Ice Lollies in Newburyport MA and forget everything you think you know about popsicles.

I tried the Lavender Lemonade at the shoot and came back again on a visit for the Mexican Chocolate.

Oh yes you will be coming back, I guarantee it.

How would you like your morning coffee in this heat wave?

How about a shot of espresso with a gelato.

Shooting at Dolce Freddo Gelato in Methuen MA with owner Andrea Rosseto and his special Affogato (espresso poured over ice cream).

Or you could go for the Berry Gelato Shake with Berry Cake or some Spagetti Ice Cream.

More views this week from writer Liz Michalski’s article Deep Freeze in the latest issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine.

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.

Summer Storms Infrared Views from Rye NH

Posted in Landscape, Personal by harkinsphoto on July 28, 2015



Wrapped up my summer vacation in Rye NH this past weekend.

We had great weather, but got a few storms.

The views were taken using my Olympus E-P1 with infrared conversion.

I actually caught the lightning in the first view.
