Thanks to Carin Macnamara for these images of bald eagles spotted recently not far from downtown Wakefield.
Wednesday, February 27
Carin Macnamara is an illustrator, corporate designer and advertising photographer who lives in Wakefield. And does she have some good photos of bald eagles as they paid a visit to Lake Quannapowitt a few weeks ago. Over the last couple of decades, bald eagles have seen a resurgence in this area, and Wakefield is apparently no exception. To see her full set of eagle pictures, visit her page on SmugMug.com here.

Thanks to Joe Saraceno for sending in these images of a juvenile bald eagle spotted recently in Wakefield.
Joe Saraceno of Wakefield recently sent in these images he took of a young bald eagle in town. Other neighboring communities, including Lynnfield, and further up the highway, Newburyport, have seen their own resurgence of bald eagles in recent years after they found themselves on the brink of extinction decades ago.

Wakefield woman has photography business in the Carriage House on Church Street, across from the Congregational Church - with more projects in the works.
Wakefield resident Adrienne Jeanne has been building her photography business in recent months from a studio in the Carriage House building near Lake Quannapowitt and Church Street. Jeanne, who grew up in Melrose and graduated from that town's high school in 2004, graduated from Suffolk University with a major in interior design, and she also has a BFA with a minor in fine arts from the New England School of Art and Design. She recalled starting off as an interior design student with more of an eye on making a living, but her instincts as an artist never faded. "I was doing photography in high school, everyone said you'll never make any money," she said in a recent conversation with Wakefield Patch. "The business, I never meant for it to …

Part of an occasional photo series highlighting the scenic open spaces of Wakefield.
It was a cold, windy Thursday afternoon on Lake Quannapowitt. There wasn't much going on there, but it seemed like a good time to get some photos of this highly scenic corner of town. Check them out and see if you agree.

Earlier this month, Wakefield Patch put out the call for photos from town residents to use at the top of its Facebook page. Here it is.
Area Patch.com websites are changing the images on their respective Facebook pages, and in Wakefield, it's a photo by Chris Carino showing some autumn scenery along Lake Quannapowitt. Many of these entries were terrific pictures in their own right and there's a good chance that some of them will also be making their way onto the Wakefield Patch Facebook page in the coming months.

From time to time, this website will run a gallery featuring the open spaces of Wakefield. Got photos of your own to share? Email email@example.com.
You don't have to leave the crowds and traffic of the Boston area to find good outdoor photos. In fact, these photos was taken on the shore of Lake Quannapowitt, practically a stone's throw from Route 128 and one of the town's most heavily traveled roads. I started getting serious about outdoor photography a couple of years back but have been dabbling in it since at least the early 1990s when I spent a couple of summers working in restaurants at Yellowstone and Grand Canyon National Parks. From time to time on this website, I'll run some scenic images of Wakefield. I hope you enjoy this batch.
