Click to preview 148 grams: marblehead, ma photo book

I have been trying to think of a unique and original way to capture my home town of Marblehead, Massachusetts ...never did I think that I would find the perfect method by putting down my dslr and picking up my iphone! ...all images in this book were taken by me with my iphone 3gs and processed using the instagram application. Some of them are instantly recognizable; others, a bit more obscure, but all taken within the confines of Marblehead. I hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I enjoyed creating them. And I hope they convey some of the beauty and special-ness that makes Marblehead so dear to me.



About the Author

Kelly Symes
AprilM2107 Marblehead, MA USA
Photography began as a hobby and has quickly become a passion for me. The creative process is such a departure from my day-to-day work and serves as an outlet for expressing myself. There is something magical in a photograph; more than just a captured moment; and I love the idea of creating a lasting record of my life and those around me.

'Marblehead'. Could be the backdrop of a fantasy-novel. I wish I could step into the pictures and wonder and wander around there for awhile.
