March is the no-man’s land between winter and spring in northern New England and a great reason to put down the remote, shove back the computer chair and head out the door to photography shows and exhibits. If you do, you’ll find your artistic or aesthetic blood will begin to thaw along with the longer days and you’ll be all the better for it.
