Back in February of 2011, I posted a note from Janet Claffey of Newburyport telling us of the passing of a dear friend of hers who was a RAW enthusiast - Barbara Bailey. Recently, Janet took Second Place in "The Color Yellow" contest, and sent me this note:

Hey RAW,

I wish to thank you and judge John Blanding for awarding my photo, "Beach Boys' Toys", Second Place in the theme "The Color Yellow."

I would like to accept my $50 prize money on behalf of fellow RAW photographer Barb Bailey, and donate it to her memorial scholarship fund.

Barbara was an avid member and together we enjoyed the monthly themes and its fellowship. Her sudden illness and then death in January, 2010 has left a great hole in the lives of her family and friends.

For the second time, this September the Amesbury Provident Bank will feature her photos for sale, with proceeds going to her namesake Memorial Scholarship fund. So I wish to extend my gratitude for this honor, and the opportunity to pay it forward.

Janet Claffey


NOTE: The address for the scholarship fund is:

The Barbara Bailey Memorial Scholarship Fund
c/o Provident Bank
5 Market St.
Amesbury, MA 01913

Details about the September exhibit will probably be posted on this page when it draws closer.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
