Intro
I'm a high school history teacher living just outside Boston, MA. Photography has become an increasingly large hobby of mine, and TE has been a perfect place for me; the concept of learning about the world through photography, as is TE's mission, fits what I tend toward in my own work. I don't know that I have any specific style; only that I tend to take photos of the places and things around me whose history I want to uncover.

In the meantime, I've learned a tremendous amount about the art of photography from the far more talented photographers who contribute their work to this site. I love coming on here every day and seeing the amazing shots from far-flung places that others have posted. It all appeals to both my inner historian and inner traveler. TE is a wonderful global community, and I'm happy to be a part of it!

I don't get to post (or travel) as often since the birth of my son Henry in May of 2013, but I try to catch up here whenever I can!

My Themes:
A Shot in the Dark - low light or night shots
Black and White - black and white shots
Flags - Shots featuring flags
Historical - Shots with historical significance
Music - Shots featuring musicians or musical subjects
Statues and Sculpture - Shots featuring statues or sculptures, as main subjects or in context
