  Not wanting to make my blog about anything other than black and white photography means that every week it will be something different, an eclectic mix of anything and everything that I think appeals to creative minds. This week I am reading a book published in 1974 called “ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE […]

The Magic of Beaver Cove

DSC00729002

Ah…the majesty of Beaver Cove on a calm morning with the lake all to myself (feels that way) and all morning long to explore all the coves and inlets on the Burnt Jacket side of Beaver Cove, with all of its native wildlife, like Mergansers, much-needed stress relief after having seen what town has to offer, which is not […]

U PICK BLUE BERRIES, Abbot, Maine

DSC07029

Sometimes, sometimes,  the elements that make up a good picture come together in a decisive moment, the subject, composition, and lighting, and inspiration strikes, like lightning it can happen anywhere. Granted, for me, there is still something very special about Moosehead Lake that is almost indefinable, but driving around Piscataquis County can very inspiring too, if I happen upon the […]

Mount Kineo State Park|Green Photographer

On the Kineo shuttle, a 10 minute trip, I wanted to frame Mt Kineo in a different light.

No, I’m not talking about the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail but about how I felt standing at the base of the Mount Kineo Fire tower looking up after a short but intense hike up the Indian Trail Wednesday morning. (Not wanting to chicken out because pictures from the fire tower would be conspicuously absent to my […]
