Rainy, Wet Sidewalks

The sun sinks, rain pelts down and the sidewalks run blood and gold.

Portrait In Brown

I took this about 30 feet from the front door of our building. The full frame contains a lot more street and building detail than is in this version. Cropping this man to just include he immediate surroundings reveals a lush tonality that I find very appealing. 

A Sky Filled With Gold

I know, I know taking photographs of pretty sunsets get old really fast. But this one last night warranted an exception and inclusion in this blog. The gold of the sky set off against the dark hills across Rockport Harbor was absolutely breathtaking. We had just returned after a long road trip and I was dead tired. But seeing this made me go out without my shoes on a gravel driveway to get this shot. This light didn’t last for more than 5 minutes.

A Bluebird Maine Landscape

Sea, sky, boats, clouds, beach and a smattering of people. All elements present and accounted for!

Bat With Mostly Blue Bucket Background

Saw this tableau today in a place called Elmer’s Barn on my way back from Augusta. Elmer runs what can best be described as a high-end junk shop. However his choice of things to show is wonderfully eclectic and every now and then one runs across something pretty good. It’s especially worth stopping by if you happen to be a photographer because of vignettes like these.

A Maine Breakfast View

Yes we are having breakfast and yes this is where we’re sitting. The place is named Nina June and it is in the town of Rockport, Maine. It is very hard to say which is better, the view or the food. 

Waterview Rockport Harbor

More often than not, I’ve found what we take to be a view of the water is actually of the edge of the water or of things in the water with the water itself serving more or less as a neutral background.
