Photographs from Westford and Surrounding area

The path not taken


I created this site so that I could share the beauty of the wilderness here in Westford.  I have also written essays and stories that show my view of the world.  I hope that I can inspire or entertain the viewer of this site with my pictures and my writing.

The photos posted on this site have been shrunk to reduce download time.  If anybody would like the uncompressed version of any picture, please contact me.  Note:  This site was written for resolution of 800 x 600.  If the picture at the top of the page is much smaller than the screen, then use the zoom function until the picture almost fills the screen.  That will provide the best viewing of the pictures and text on this site.

If you have any comments, you may write to me at  If you want to link to this site, you may link to this page. 

The photographs are categorized in a directory.  My favorites are the wildlife photos.
