It’s been snowing all day. I thought I’d stop at DW and see if I could get some snow shots. Didn’t turn out well- for one, the roads weren’t plowed there so they closed the gate. I’m hoping that’s just during the storm and not all winter. Since the snow was still coming down, the visibility was pretty bad so it didn’t make for very good shots. Oh well, I’m sure we’ll get plenty more snow! It’d be perfect if I could go right after the snow stopped. I chose the gloves for my official shot for today, but I’m also adding the only shot that actual came out well. I do want to have a nice collection of season shots from DW so hopefully I can get there so more in the snow.

This is our 4th summer in Brockton, but we had never been to the fair. Probably because it, well, doesn’t have the best reputation. but we decided since we were in Brockton on July 4th and we wanted to see the fireworks, we’d go. I’m glad we did! It was pretty crowded, and we weren’t there long, but it was fun. the ride company is the same one that does the Hebron Fair- sadly I wasn’t allowed to go on rides yet because of the surgery. But we ate fair food, watched some demolition derby, listened to some music, and enjoyed the atmosphere. The fireworks were great- I’ve never actually been that close to where they’ve been set off, it’s much more immersive when they’re right over you like that.

Since we weren’t going to Boston for July 4th, we decided to stay local and have a picnic at DW Field Park. We brought some food, and sat at a picnic table in the shade. There were a few other families, but it was surprisingly quiet. We saw one of the Canada Goose babies (Canada gosling?), not fully grown but certainly bigger. We drove around the lake, and actually saw 2 of the swans together. It’s like they can sense people with food from across the lake.

Rob is at a conference for a few days, with the car. I was feeling stuck inside, so I decided to walk down to Dunkin Donuts and CVS, which takes me by the cemetery. Look how much it changed in just a month!
First shoot with my new camera! I had to do a lot of adjusting, but I’m really happy overall. And there were baby geese! A family with a bunch of babies. I was very thankful for my zoom lens, since the parents were NOT going to let us close to their babies. They even tried to cross the street at one point, a man and his son were trying to stop cars, but they must’ve decided it was too scary and went back. We saw the swan again, with all the geese and ducks at the usual spot. There was also one single grey goose- he was obnoxiously loud.
Tons of picture this time, I know, but I was just loving the camera!
