Let's be honest for a moment. Fall River often times gets a bad rep, but I'm here today to convince you to think otherwise.

As someone who grew up in the countryside of Westport, I've always been surrounded by nature, for the most part. I enjoyed being outdoors and enjoying the explorations throughout the woods. You never know what you're going to run into or see.

However, in Fall River, it's more of an industrious place to live, am I right? It's too loud for wildlife and too many vehicles in the area. For the most part, yes, but lately I've been seeing a more vibrant and softer side to the city.

There's a local photographer by the name of Mark Maxwell, CEO of Mark Maxwell Photography, that I've been following for the past few months. He mostly photographs nature, but to be more specific, nature that surround the Quequechan River Rail Trail, the most underrated area in Fall River.

If you have the patience and the time, you're bound to witness a handful of critters and animals and even deer who sometimes wander off around the northern tip of the Watuppa Pond. Maxwell is certainly the man for the job and the results are in the photos.

I'd love to show you some of his photography that he took of the Fall River area so that you can perhaps understand why I'm so mesmerized by his work. From bugs to birds to bunnies, check out Maxwell's photos below:
