This is 480 Titicut Street, Bridgewater, MA. I must have unknowingly ridden my bicycle past this house over 100 times. It was well hidden in overgrown forest just 50 or so feet from the road in the middle of no-man’s land between unused farmland, forest, Taunton River marsh, and Bridgewater State Hospital Prison property. Then one day somebody decided to cut all the brush back and lo and behold there is was! According to online real estate sites, this house was built in 1960 on a small vegetable farm and was last sold in 2006 for the sum of $1. Who knows the story behind this wreck?

I was on my way to work in the AM and spotted black smoke through the trees leading to this car fire at the Home Depot in Bridgewater, MA. I had to take the opportunity to get some fire fighting footage.

Stiles & Hart Conservation Park

This 75-acre site was an agricultural fairground with a grand exhibition hall from 1820 to 1875 in Bridgewater, MA. In 1895 a local teacher, William Basset Sr., purchased the land and founded the Bridgewater Brick Company, mining clay and manufacturing bricks. In 1913 the Stiles & Hart Brick Company purchased the operation. Damage to buildings caused by a hurricane in 1938 forced brick production to cease but clay mining continued until after World War II. Now the site has grown in with forest, all structures are gone, and the only evidence of prior uses are piles of old bricks here and there throughout the site.

Carver Pond, Bridgewater

I walked over to Carver Pond today. Tons of dragonflies and lilly pads. I saw one heron but, it was too far away to get a picture of before it flew away. I'll have to try again another day.

Nothing is better than puffy white clouds on a deep blue backdrop for landscapes. It almost looks fake sometimes.

Bridgewater State Baseball 2

Back again with JB for some more baseball fun. After almost two hours of not much happening in the game we walked away to see the other fields to see what was going on. Then came a succession of hits that we missed out on and could only hear from afar.

Did the same thing at this game as the last. I got a little more interested in capturing the feeling of the game rather than just the action. The players interacting and their expressions are important too.

Bridgewater State Baseball

The college athletic fields are right across the street from me and the baseball games are free to attend. I had not taken any action shots with my SP-510UZ before this. With the 10x zoom I could get in pretty close and the lens fit in-between the chain-link fence perfect.

Set the SP-510UZ to sport mode and you can zoom and shoot with one hand! Just had to time pressing the button right and got some super action shots.

Tuckerwood Conservation Area

This park is so well hidden in the middle of a neighborhood that I drove by the entrance twice. It looks like the driveway to somebody’s house in the front then becomes full on forest once you get in. Unfortunately, the day was overcast and nothing started growing yet besides moss and mushrooms.

More macro and texture shots. Not much else to say here.

Stanley Iron Works Revisited

Back for more here. This time with a new camera and JB joined me with his new DSLR too. Explored more of the leftover structures this time since the place hadn’t become overgrown yet.

New camera here, a SP-510UZ. It has a 10x zoom, more megepixels, and scene pre-sets. Macro works well to get a shorter depth of field in a few shots.

Stanley Iron Works, Bridgewater

I started looking for local parks that might have something a little different to photograph and found this place just around the corner. It was a big-time iron factory at the turn of the century. Just about everything was torn down, remnants remain.

C-765 again. This is a pretty handy camera and the 10x came in handy. Would have liked a wider angle a few times but, I ran out of real-estate to back up.

Neighborhood: Bridgewater, MA

After taking some quick pictures Renee and Brian’s wedding last month, I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood with my camera. Bridgewater is really just a normal suburban town but, there’s some nice views.

First camera walkabout with the C-765. Also had to get used to using new tools in Photoshop for photo editing since I hadn’t done too much of that before.
