Joan Bines is a recently minted photographer. Having received a digital camera from her children for her birthday, she took it on walks and found that she and the camera were “seeing” in an exciting way. She progressed from point-and-shoot to SLR and is constantly learning. Joan is the director of the Golden Ball Tavern Museum, in Weston, Massachusetts, a position she has held for 26 years. Joan and her family are long-time residents of Lexington, Massachusetts.
