February Photography Exhibit
David Alexander

Hangin Out

Winchendon resident David Alexander has had a life-long interest in and affection for photography. Starting with a Kodak 'Brownie' and progressing through various film cameras, he eventually wound up with a 35mm and a multitude of lenses. He now uses DSLR, 'Point & Shoot', and cell phone cameras. He belongs to three local photography groups in Keene, Orange, and Gardner. Taking mostly landscape, wildlife, flowers, and macro shots, he's working on developing his skills in portraiture and pet photography. His photography will be on display in the Library's Exhibit Gallery through February 26th.
