During our stay in Maine I saw lots of “retired” fishing boats in various states of disrepair and certainly not seaworthy. They imply a long history, much of which one can make up just by looking.
When we first got to Bath, Maine I was struck by The Sagadahoc Bridge and its neighboring older bridge. They connect Bath and Woolrich, Maine. Bridges in general are engineering monuments and wonderful to photograph and these two are among my favorites.
Most of us hope to have a vacation trip with clear weather and bright sun. In fact, for me, fog and rain make for images that are atmospheric and mysterious.
I am trying to get a set of fog images and fog shrouded landscapes seem as delicate and fragile to represent as the landscapes themselves.
The Heritage Farm near Bath Maine is run by a couple who are involved in saving and propagating animals and vegetables with “antique” genetics. It was foggy when we visited them and I love to photograph fog though I find it challenging to recreate the feeling of fog over the landscape.
One of the best parts of making pictures is getting at the details because for me the little stuff add up to the big stuff. The first two photographs are my ongoing experiments with black and white compared to color and I think these two are both interesting for different reasons.
Such goodies at the Farmers’ Market.
Maine’s coast is so generous with its beauties that I cannot escape showing large blogs with too many images.
On our Maine trip we visited friends whom we have not seen in a while and here is their yard. It encapsulates what I think is the essence of Maine in the fall..
Among the many reasons to go to Maine is the lobster and its catchers, a perfect combination of people, work, boats and eating.
Coastal Maine is one of my favorite places and in the nest blog series I will try to share the experience. The first thing I think about coastal Maine is lobster fishing and eating.
