“There’s a quality of life in Maine which is this singular and unique, I think.  It’s absolutely a world onto itself.”

It’s been weeks since I’ve had a chance to sit and catch up. Spring is in full force, although today it feels a bit like autumn with a brisk chill in the air. We had a week of rain that left everything lush and green and the tree blossoms are just glorious now.

We actually got to experience spring a bit early when we took a road trip down to North Carolina to see my son. We stopped along the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and did a bit of hiking.  The views were incredible.

Gearing up for a busy couple of months ahead, which will include a trip to the Maine coast, a family reunion and an exciting photo project.

Once again, I will be teaming up with Carol MacGregor (Happy Gatherings Photography) for a shoot at the beautiful Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton, Massachusetts. This project will be based on the art of John Singer Sargent. The Bradley Estate is one of many sites run by The Trustees of Reservations and this year will mark their 125th anniversary. We met with the director last week and got the Board’s full approval and we’re now doing tons of research and collecting of props. Very happy to be part of this celebration.

So that’s life in a nutshell..back to my usual short and less chatty posts. Have a lovely week ahead.

“The light was different here in California.”
~ Heidi Freestone

We squeezed in so much in just five short days
I hope to post bits and pieces here as I go through all
the images and re-live
our trip to Northern California
But for now, it’s back to reality
and to beautiful autumn here in New England

I wish you all a happy weekend!

I was up in the air yesterday when I realized I forgot to write my blog post. Yes, I hopped a flight to San Francisco, spending a few days exploring and meeting up with some friends for a photo walk. Will be back next week to catch up with everyone.

Happy Weekend, all!

Nonantum Inn

on the weekend before Memorial Day, my husband and I took a few days off down Maine
every year we stay at the Nonantum Inn in Kennebunkport
it’s a tradition that we’ve carried on for years now
and it’s so wonderful that they know us and always leave us a nice “welcome back” note in our room
this year was a bit different as we visited before the official start of summer
it was quiet and cool and foggy
a changed atmosphere from what we are used to
and I have to say that it was quite a nice change
to walk the beach and not have it crowded with “wall to wall” beach blankets
a beautiful atmosphere in the fog

and the fact that there were no long lines at the Clam Shack
was an added plus!
