365 day 28 – the lost boot

I was standing (crouching) there shooting for a good 10 minutes and then I spied these two across the parking lot on Water Street looking around. I yelled “Hello! I think I’ve found your boot!”

365 day 27 – icicles, snow, and a dead bunny (sorry)


Newburyport Today installment #2 – SNOW!

Hey Newburyport, What’s the “Word on the Street”?

Posted on Friday, January 21st, 2011 at 11:30 am

Newburyport-Today is pleased to welcome back Lydia See who is a freelance photographer, journalist, and Jacqueline-of-all-trades who recently returned to Newburyport after living in the South for 15 years. She was most recently published as a music photographer and critic, though she also photographs portraits, weddings, events, and accepts commissions of all kinds. Her photographs and writing may be viewed at, and she can be reached through email at  Look for Lydia to around town snapping photos and asking what is the “Word on The Street“? She contributes to this series bi-monthly.

To get you in the mood for the Winter Carnival this weekend, Lydia’s photos this week are of sledding.

She says, “In the days that followed our most recent storm, the sledding at March’s Hill became busier and more slippery by the minute. Here are a few shots of some local kids tearing it up!”
