Last Monhegan pic where it’s feeding time for the gulls...and @thelifeofclover dives in from the right! Great hiking, sunsets, swimming, decent ice cream, and much needed quiet time. #mainelife#capturemaine#itsphotoshopped
I haven’t posted as much lately as things have been a little crazy between enjoying vacation and a loved one being diagnosed with cancer (more on that later), but believe me I have no shortage of material. I’ve taken more photos in the last few weeks than ever (my poor camera needs a break) but haven’t had the time or energy required to sort through, narrow down, process, and post. Hoping to post more regularly again. Gotta start somewhere!
Was today chilly to any other Mainers out there in IGLand? Oh my, this time of summer gets me every year. I love it and dread it at the same time. The golden light, warm days, and cool nights...Why doesn't summer last as long as winter seems to?
When I was a kid my stepfather brought home a few of these buoys from the fishing vessels he worked aboard, and he made us a few rope swings just like this. It wasn't quite the same view as this, but I can't tell you the number of hours I spent swinging climbing and hanging out on that swing...seeing this swing brought me back to my childhood and gave me quite a feeling of nostalgia...I love that photography brings me out and forces me to see the world through new and old eyes 👀
What do you like about photography as a photographer or as a connoisseur 😅😁??
I was going through my gallery trying to decide where to shoot the moon this month and came across this one from Fort Allen Park. I think it is one of my favorites. It has a lot of things I like. I try to blend the moon as part of the landscape without dominating the scene.
A bird's-eye view of the keeper's house from the very high and very narrow "balcony" outside the top of the lighthouse. Funny, but it didn't look that high when we were standing on the ground below earlier!
