One of the great things about taking pictures -either as a hobby or professionally-, is that you shoot far more than you use. Well, at least I do. And when you keep everything that you shoot, you often wind up with thousands of photos that are untouched and ripe for rediscovery. Over the past two months, I have been rediscovering earlier works, dusting them off (so to speak) and giving them a go.
While the editing and posting of my new and archival photos have served to keep me busy during the dead of winter, it has also served to keep what passes for my sanity these days. Many of you know that art, in whatever capacity, can be therapeutic. We lose ourselves in the seas of creativity in the hopes of producing something worthwhile not only for ourselves, but for others too. The photography I have posted over the past months has definitely made me happy. I hope they have done and will continue to do the same for you.
I am happy to announce that my fourth book of photography, Here, There and Elsewhere, is now available for purchase on Blurb.com! A collection of photos taken over the past few years, Here, There and Elsewhere is my most ambitious book to date, one I hope you will enjoy. To order the book, or simply check out a preview of it, click here.
An eBook edition of Here, There and Elsewhere is currently in production and should be available by the end of November.
A day off from work translated into a day trip to my current favorite photography spot: the state of Maine. The weather started off iffy, but soon changed as I head to the towns of Freeport and Phippsburg, where the beauty of Wolfe’s Neck and Popham Beach State Parks awaited me. As if the lovely locations weren’t enough, I was lucky to meet a great group of people along the way who gave me tips on new locations to track down in the future. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the photos taken on May 12th.
