The Checkout Girl


So often it’s the light that determines the quality of a photograph isn’t it?

This morning while Sarah and I were at the grocery market, I spotted this young lady bagging people’s purchases. Her face was raked by the low early morning light coming through the front windows. By eliminating some of the background clutter in post processing, this was the result. I’m biased of course, but this almost looks like a studio portrait instead of the grab shot it actually is.

I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader.
However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery.
I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it.

I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.
