And so it goes...sometimes life is like that. From “The Lion and the Bird” - an incredibly beautiful children’s book about friendships and saying goodbye. So very apropos this week. - via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BnWWO1UFFUi/

I love this shot...not because of the subject or the composition or anything else photo-related. The family was on a hike through the forest, and my 6 year old daughter and I were lagging behind. We came upon this and after a pause, my daughter looked up at me and said, "Daddy, it looks like somebody painted these." Nature's beauty through the eyes of a 6 year-old...that is why I love this photo. . ______________________________________ https://mathison.photos . . @newenglandpictures @naturalnewengland #igersnewengland #newengland #fuji #fujifilmxt2 #fujifilm #fuji_xseries #fujifilm_northamerica #igersmaine #igmaine #maine_igers #maineisgorgeous #ig_maine - via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BmLbhU8gEr0/

My favorite part of the trip was the birds. Listening to the loons on the lake at night was indescribable. And Wednesday morning I was able to spend an hour watching one of my favorite birds - the pileated woodpecker. In this case it was an adult and a juvenile feeding on insects in this stump. . ______________________________________ https://mathison.photos . . @naturalmassachusetts @newenglandpictures @naturalnewengland #igersnewengland #newengland #fuji #fujifilmxt2 #fujifilm #fuji_xseries #fujifilm_northamerica #birdfreaks #bestbirdshots #bird_brilliance #birdsofinstagram #woodpecker #bird #birds #birdphotography - via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BmI3J02DW72/

Three years ago, we made the toughest decision of our lives - we moved to Maynard, MA, not knowing a soul. That changed quickly as we made great friends and got involved in this amazing community. Now we have made the even tougher decision to return to NC for a great job opportunity. It will be exciting to be closer to family and to be doing work I love, but we are absolutely heartbroken to leave our friends and this special place. - via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Blu_0qwAmJk/

Some portions of the Assabet River were covered in some sort of green plant substance.

Yesterday I spent 6 hours canoeing on the Assabet River. I managed to get terribly sunburnt knees and a weird farmers tan on my forehead from wearing my hat backwards (seriously - it looks ridiculous). But besides that, I also managed to get some photos that I love. For the next several days I'll be posting some of my favorites. The dragonflies were spectacular, like these small Carolina blue ones fluttering around everywhere. . ______________________________________ https://mathison.photos . . @naturalmassachusetts @newenglandpictures @naturalnewengland #IGersBoston #igersmass #igersnewengland #MaynardMA #massachusetts #newengland #boston #fuji #fujifilmxt2 #fujifilm #fuji_xseries #fujifilm_northamerica #dragonfly - via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BlQGRzDAHnb/

For the first time in ages, I spent the day in the studio. I started out helping my studio-mate print some negatives for cyanotypes in her upcoming show.That inspired me to do a few of my own. Some turned out not-so-great, but a couple turned out really well. ________________________________ https://mathison.photos . . #alternativeprocess #cyanotype #alternativeprocesses #alternativeprocessphotography - via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bk3YVE9A7X4/

I still (and will always) contend that there is a special quality in how film captures light that digital will never be able to replicate. In all my early years of film photography, not once did I ever push a roll, and now I feel like it has opened up a whole new world for me. This is a shot from my test roll of @kodak Portra 400 pushed to 1600.
