JETeye: Seeing Through Pictures- Year Ten

THAT’S A WRAP!! TEN years of photoblogging on Pixyblog! I’m sure that has to be close to a record, for someone posting 5 days a week for 10…

Haunted House: Commonwealth Avenue, Part 2

I think the guy coming out of the brick (or sinking into it) is awesome! I always wonder where people store all this stuff. This is a brownstone…

Haunted House: Commonwealth Avenue

Last week, after work, I was walking over to Beacon Hill so I could get some photos of Halloween decorations. A few years ago I had walked around…

Fall Fountain

Pretty fountain outside the entrance to T-Bones on Main Street.

ALMA del MAR

From the student’s shirt I discovered that ALMA del MAR is a charter school. Yesterday was a beautiful day to have a school field trip to Plymouth Rock.

Window Art

Just a display I came across while walking around town.

Patriot Boots

Came across this display when I was walking around the neighborhood during the 4th of July. When I moved to Plymouth I had tossed out my old LL…

Bird Feeder Stand

I liked the look of how the snow landed on the bird feeder stand. Today it might be covered or blown away.    

Lobster Trap Tree

This lobster trap tree on the wharf always looks great.

Plymouth Center for the Arts

A nice centerpiece.

Prudential Decorations

A pretty view while taking the escalator down on the Huntington Ave. exit.

Old Books

There is something about the texture, color, and contrast of old books that I find very appealing. I have my great grandmothers Bible from the early 1900s, that…

We The People

When I first thought about what I’d write for today’s post I was thinking about explaining how I could not vote for one of the candidates. Then I…

JETeye: Seeing Through Pictures- Year Nine

Saturday (Oct. 29th) was the 9th anniversary of the day I started photoblogging on Pixyblog. The memories I have most about this past year of course have to…

Pumpkin Burger

The Dennett Elementary School in Plympton had a fair a couple weekends ago. Each class entered a pumpkin for the pumpkin decorating contest. I don’t know who won…

The Thirsty Pilgrim

There was a two day event this past weekend called The Thirsty Pilgrim. It’s a beer festival so I wasn’t interested, other than taking a couple photos. Looked…

I Love Boston

Came across this piece of art while walking from my office to the main campus. I thought it might have been a work done by the graffiti artist…

Farm Day: Cranberry Crates

I liked the look of the old cranberry crates all stacked together.

Farm Day: Mayflower Cranberries

Last stop on the Farm Day tours was Mayflower Cranberries. This was a very informative tour giving us all sorts of history about the bog, the families that…

Farm Day: Tin Tubs

I loved how they had all these tin tubs hanging on the back of the house at Just Right Farm.

New Digs: Bedroom

Well, there’s still more stuff to be moved and lots to be put away and organized but the bedroom is ready for Maya (and me). We both had…

Saquish 4th of July Parade

The best parade is when you can just be standing on the beach while trucks drive by and throw candy at you! I really like the swing chair…

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July!

Memorial Day 2016

Not a good day for a Memorial Day parade. My dad is supposed to be marching in the Plympton parade as selectman. I hope the rain lets up…

Easter

My sister-in-law does a beautiful job setting a table and decorating (and cooking!). She and my brother are always gracious to host the family for holidays. Thank you!

Snow Shadow

While taking photos of the snowflakes, I noticed how cool the shadow of the deck railings looked against the snow.

Happy New Year, 2016!

On my walk to work I came across this display. In the summer it had a bunch of yellow rubber ducks but I really like the polar bears,…

Merry Christmas Eve

Santa won’t have to worry about coming down the chimney tonight. It’s supposed to be in the mid to high 60s today and in the low 60s tomorrow….

Budweiser Fire Truck

One of the houses we visited on the tour was a former fire station. I like that they had an old fashioned fire truck in the garage. I…

Crèche/Diorama

I wasn’t sure if this was a diorama, or as my brother said, a crèche. Technically, I think it falls under both definitions. Anyway, it was setup at…

Live By Night

Last night, while walking to South Station after work, I came across all these old cars in front of the Copley Plaza hotel. I assumed they were getting…

Black Cat

Happy Friday the 13th! I hope everyone has a very lucky day! This photo is of Louisburg Square in Beacon Hill. It is the last private square in…

Veterans Day, 2015

Thank you to all the Veterans from past, present, and future.

Beacon Hill Doorway

A very inviting doorway. However, this is in the very exclusive Beacon Hill area so I probably woudn’t be welcomed if I knocked on the door :-).

Gravestone Carvings

While taking pictures, I was sort of paying attention to the historian giving the tour but I should have taken notes. I know he mentioned a Fuller and…

JETeye: Seeing Through Pictures- Year Eight

Today is the eighth anniversary of my photo blog. If I was to think back right now over the past year I would say it was full of…
