We spent last week in Maine and I finally visited a lighthouse during decent light. The Pemaquid Point Light Park was full of photographers waiting for the light to change. As it turned out, most were with Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures. They were all nice and seemed to be having a good time. This turned out to be a highlight of the trip. Besides swapping stories with kindred spirits, it was nice to make pictures in pretty light. Coming from a news and journalism background, that hasn’t always been possible.
We also visited Swan Island, an historic island and state park run by the Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Some of the structures date back to 18th and 19th century and look like they belong in an Andrew Wyeth watercolor.
