4th of July–Stonington, ME

I got to spend the 4th of July working, and then taking pictures.  Stonington had fun for the 4th – food on the docks, and fireworks… I met Shannon Stapleton, a photographer who works for Reuters on the dock.  We talked photography and the Island.

This wonderful rainbow appears often over the water if its been foggy and clears or raining because of the way the sun catches the water crystals in the air.

The theme this year was: PIRATES!

I’ve been working on blur and focus – my new camera works different my old one – finding that balance has been interesting.

Light, shadows, colors and details.

I have a thing for doors.  Like this one.

I have never taken pictures of fireworks before.  So I googled.  I do not have a trigger bulb release.  I had to use a 2 second delay with means I had to time the shots out really well.  Or, leave it to luck.  I think it was 50/50

I played around with zooming in and out – the challenge in that is – focus.

After Work Snaps 4.3.2017

Since we are supposed to get rain for the next few days – I decided that I was skipping the gym and hitting the sunset beat.

There are tons of nooks and crannies here in Deer Isle and Stonington.  I’m having fun seeking them out and I know I haven’t even scratched the surface.

There are various beaches here on the Island, and learning just where the sun sets and rises, is an every changing curve – getting to know the island while driving for work has its advantages Smile

A picture is worth 1000 words, and sometimes, words fail you – so the pictures shall speak.

Deer Isle and Stonington, Maine

I really do enjoy this island – after work on a Friday, I decided to go snapping pictures instead of going to the gym.

I do enjoy taking a look at things from different perspectives – and sometimes up close and person is best.

Check out the clouds – cotton candy in a sea of blue

I have yet to go inside the Opera House (yes, yes, I will go maybe when Jules visits)

I don’t get “sunsets” where I am living, instead I get that sweet glow of blue, oranges, and yellows – which can be better sometimes.

I can’t wait for longer days to hang out on my porch, do my nightly scheduling, and watch the boats come in.

Around and About – Maine

One of the best parts of working this home care job, is the places I go and things I see.  Typically, its go, go, go.  But I can get out of the car, snap 10 pictures in under five minutes.  I just have to drive fast to make up for the time, right?  (I’m joking!)

These are the same pictures, one is HDR’ed slightly more than the other – its an old rushed out truck sitting somewhere around Harbour Side, Me.  On these wicked twisty, turn roads.

I love how the ice makes jigsaw puzzle like patterns on the edge of the water!

This is what happens during laundry time – I get bored and take pictures of things….. name that object!

There is beauty in everything – and in everything there is beauty.

I drove this area last year, but this lovely motorcycle, I had never seen (more than likely covered by snow).  This year, during one of the many thaws, I spotted it on my way home and snagged a few pictures.  Interesting how the rust bleeds through the paint – they sure don’t make em like they used too!

Deer Isle, Maine–Snow

I’ll admit, I am not the biggest fan of the snow.  However, it is pretty.  Most of the time.
