What better way to escape the insanity of our current world than to get up before the crack of dawn and head on out to watch the sun rise. The following photos were taken this morning at Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine. Being out on the shore, surrounded by the stillness brought on by a new day certain goes a long way in helping one decompress from society.
I hope you enjoy the pics. Please stay safe and healthy.
I am pleased to announce the start of work on my fifth book of photography, Archives.
Archives is a collection of pictures old and new, many that have been previewed here on my blog over the past few months. Archives will be available in three editions: hardcover, softcover and eBook.
I am also happy to announce that 100% of the proceeds from sales of the eBook edition of Archives will go directly to Special Olympics. I don’t need to tell you how important a program like the Special Olympics is to so many people out there. I will also spare you any political grandstanding regarding the proposed $17.1 million cuts in funding.
What I will do, however, is ask you to join me in helping the program out. Your purchase will help a program that has benefitted so many individuals in its 50 years of existence. Your donation will allow that greatness to continue.
Further details on the book’s release will be forthcoming shortly. As always, thank you for stopping by!
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.
This morning, I headed up to York, Maine to participate in the Walk To End Alzheimer’s (The walk raised a phenomenal $76,000. Awesome work, Maine!). Since I was going to be in the area, I figured I would get up early, head over to one of my favorite haunts – Nubble Lighthouse- and take some pics of the sunrise. Alas, it was more of a “fog rise” than anything else. Luckily for me, a foggy morning on the coast of New England is something I truly like. Especially when taking some pics.
Color pics are great, but I have missed taking shots that I would process in black and white. A foggy morning where sunlight was practically nonexistent was the perfect opportunity to delve back into the ol’ B&W while playing around a bit with the images.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
I have to apologize for a lack of posting over the past few months. The seemingly endless cold weather in New England so far this year is enough to make one just stay home and hibernate when one can. But as the weather finally begins to warm up -it’s gonna be in the 50s this weekend!- and the days get longer, the desire to get out, wander around and take some pics of New England in the “Spring” will continue to grow. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the few pics I have snapped over the past couple of months.
