Sis and I drove to the ancient, still working fishing village of Stonington, Maine last week. It's about a 40 minute ride from the Cape and made a great spot for a lunch outing.
This little village on the point of Deer Isle, is a photographer's paradise. Every time I blinked, there was something else to "shoot": gardens, fishing shacks, piled up lobster traps, houses built on bedrock.
Enroute, we stopped at Caterpiller Hill Lookout to enjoy the view and pick a handful of blueberries. Being a seasonal resident here in Down East Maine lets me see the same old things in new ways every time I come back. I have probably shot this harbour more times that I can count, but there is always something new to see.
As I post today's B&W photo, I am not entirely happy with the poor depth-of-field. Thinking back on it, I realize I should have changed the settings and gone for a higher f stop. Ah well, next time.
Still, I like the sky and the weathered look of the wood.
The ubiquitous Adirondack chair.
Here she sits,
weathered by the elements,
inviting us to rest and take in a peaceful view of the harbour.
What do you use to rest and relax on your back deck?
A lounge chair?
Have you stopped by Like Christmas Every Day to see the other B&W's on display? It's definitely worth the visit.
This week, there is a family wedding over at the North Pole and so the B&W's are waiting until next week. I'm just in such a rut, I have to keep going no matter what.
