The dog days of summer are a welcome counterpart to New England’s long and cold winters. Between staff vacations and the amount of summertime activity needing coverage, I feel fortunate to get out and about with my camera for the Valley News. Here’s a few of my favorites:
From top: After a quick dip in the Connecticut River, Pete the Papillon watches his owner swim with a friend, cooling off after work at the East Wilder Boat Launch in West Lebanon, N.H.; Passing in front of AVA Gallery and Art Center, a young runner is amongst the 112 who participated in Brady’s Run, a one-mile fun run before the start of the 13th annual Skip Matthews Memorial Run in Lebanon; Scott Turnbull, of Essex, Vt., demonstrates drone goggles he customized with silly eyes during a demonstration by the Northern New England Drone User Group at the Royalton Memorial Library in South Royalton, Vt.; Erin Zagadailov, of Grantham, N.H., hands a bag of clothing to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Matt Dunne, of Hartland, Vt., while rotating stock as part of a community service project with campaign volunteers and supporters at Listen in White River Junction, Vt.; Anna Royce, of Norwich, Vt., greets organist Phyllis Potter, of Sharon, Vt., as she arrives for the Beaver Meadow Union Chapel’s monthly service in Norwich. Potter has been playing at services for 25 years because she enjoys the pump organ in the 100-year-old church; Joel Dizon, of Lebanon, tries to catch a crayfish while volunteering to clean up the Mascoma River in Lebanon.
