The Old House Journal with the Clingstone story is on the newsstands.  It is the May 2011 issue.  Click here to see the online version.  Please click on the photos to see them in a pop-out window.  And keep in mind that the volunteer weekend is coming up .  It is a blast.

I finished the Clingstone shoot for Old House Journal and delivered it at the end of the week.  The article will hit the newsstands in early March and should be worth a look.  The annual volunteer weekend is sometime around the Memorial Day weekend, and anyone who wants to help out is usually welcome.

I am partway through shooting a story for the Old House Journal about a most amazing house off the coast of Jamestown, RI.  Clingstone was built in 1905 and is now owned by the Wood family of Boston.  It was abandoned from 1941 to 1961 when Henry Wood bought it for $3600.  Last weekend was the annual “work weekend” when volunteers come to the island to help out with all sorts of repairs and upkeep.  It was a very interesting collection of people.  This shot shows Dan Wood on the launch with the house in the background.
