Archive: Boothbay Harbor: One Year Ago. April, 2018

A year ago this week, I took a quick overnight trip up to Boothbay Harbor in Maine. The following are a group of previously unreleased pictures. Picture nine is a photo I experimented with in Photoshop using the Oil Painting filter. The moose picture was the closest I have come to finding and photographing one of these creatures in Maine. Go figure.

Background music used for editing on this project: “Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt,” “Play” and “18” by Moby.

Enjoy!

Sunset Walk – Melrose, MA. 04.13.19

A 70 degree day in mid-April can only mean one thing. Well, two things. The first is getting outside and walking around to enjoy the day. The second is that if it is sunny out, the sunset is going to be a beauty. Such was the case tonight in the Boston area. A quick walk around the neighborhood led me to one of my favorite spots to take pictures: Ell Pond.

When I edit pictures such as the ones below, I tend to let the music flow in the background. It can be all types of music that help set my train of thought in shaping the pictures I take. In the case of the pictures below, it was a one-two combination of Mark Knopfler’s score for the 1983 classic Local Hero and Maurice Jarre’s legendary score for David Lean’s Doctor Zhivago.
