I have embarked on a new photo project!

New Hampshire Now is a documentary photography project of the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists. Its goal is to offer a contemporary view of the people, culture, and landscape of the state.

I am challenged by such a broad project scope to choose precisely what to photograph. However, this gives me full creative license to take it in any direction. Before landing on my theme, I went out on an early winter morning to explore downtown Lebanon, NH for inspiration.
