Art via iPhone

It’s been awhile since I posted anything from my collection of iPhone photos. They’ve pretty much been living on my phone for the last year, so I thought I’d put together something a little more comprehensive than a few scattered photos here and there.

Anyway, here’s a little indulgence for my artistic and spontaneous sides.

Hockey, eh?

I don’t really consider myself a hockey photographer by any stretch. I didn’t grow up playing it, nor have I ever really found much enjoyment watching it. But, it’s not hard to understand why people like it.

The action’s fast, and there’s always a lot of contact — usually a good recipe for making decent pictures. I don’t photograph hockey very often. So, the few times that I do, it’s usually an exercise in patience and frustration as I try to fumble my way through a game trying to get something in focus.

This time around, I covered the NCAA Northeast Region Championship game at the DCU Center in Worcester, where Yale and Boston College squared off for a trip to Detroit to play in the Frozen Four. It was a high scoring, fast-paced game, with BC coming out on top, 9-7. Here are some selects from the night:

Super Soaker

So, the rain has finally stopped. Just my luck, especially since I was down to my last pair of dry socks yesterday.

After four straight days of rain, it’s not really any surprised that the waterways of Massachusetts have been stressed to their max. Governor Deval Patrick issued a state of emergency in Waltham, where I spent some time the day before, and took a tour of the Moody Street Dam, which was overflowing.

Here’s a little bit of what we saw:

3.15.2010 — WALTHAM, Mass. — Waltham firefighters assist Department of Conservation and Recreation Flood Control Director William Gode as he clears debris from the Moody Street Dam, which was overflowing due to the excess rainfall over the weekend, in Waltham on Mar. 15, 2010.
