Happy Halloween 2017

Posted in Landscape, Personal by harkinsphoto on October 31, 2017


Out yesterday documenting powerline damage for the local utilities I came across the Valley Cemetery in Londonderry NH for some Halloween views.

Established in 1793 it is one of the town’s earliest burial sites.

I caught the sunlight just as it was setting and enhanced some views with a few Photoshop actions.

If it hasn’t been postponed due to the outages don’t forget the little trick or treaters tonight.

Posted in Editorial, Portrait by harkinsphoto on October 4, 2017


I got an environmental education in the foods of the forest with writer and educator Sarah Courchesne.  Along with a similar group of interested individuals we traipsed along the quad area of Northern Essex Community College where Sarah works as a teacher.

In a short amount of time she pointed out the importance of cattails, sumac berries and other plants and their usage.

Rosie the Rocketeer

Posted in Personal, Portrait, Product, Still Life by harkinsphoto on September 22, 2017


Artist Bruce Wood of the Glass Ingot allowed me to photograph one of his prized works of art “Rosie” this past summer.

I loved the use of recycled items to produce a  jet pack and all the accouterments for a beautiful Steampunk Rocketeer.

Bruce recently said on his Facebook site “My sculpture “Rosie the Rocketeer” will be in an essay for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming exhibition catalog”.
