\\ Well I see trees of green and red roses too, I'll watch them bloom for me and you And I think to myself What a wonderful world // ° ° It downpoured on @sailedaway and my ride back home from Rockland a couple weeks back. I look to my left through the trees and see this beautiful sight, and with a little luck, a scenic pull off just happened to be about a half mile down the road. at Maine

\\ The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. // ° ° Great clouds are an awesome way for adding that final layer of complexity to a photograph. Waiting for water to move in the way you see fit for the image is also important for pulling everything together. at Owls Head, Maine

\\ Oh take your time, don't live too fast Troubles will come, and they will pass // ° ° The trip out to the Breakwater light was amazing, couldn't ask for more. This shot was taken using a HDR technique of the heavy contrast of storm clouds rolling in. I really loved the chrome railings running down to the dock. at Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light

\\ Hug a double yellow spine Knobby rubber like a rat on a rope // ° ° I'm a sucker for a good pan, a good street shot. And I got very lucky after shooting this stealth-style from the hip. @sailedaway and I were walking across a bridge to frame some kayakers at the Perkins Elizabeth House when I see this biker round the corner up ahead and start barrelling toward us at 20mph or so. In the 2 free seconds I had, I spun the shutter dial to 1/60" and waited briefly. I wanted to be incognito to avoid a manufactured emotion or look. So I kept the camera on my belt buckle and spun with him as he went by, hit the shutter with my thumb, and this is what came of it. No crop. at Perkins Elizabeth House

\\ The best way to predict the future is to create it // ° ° The moon was perfect on this night, big and bright, and the contrasty clouds providing a natural ND filter of sorts so I could correctly compose the whole scene. Can't wait to go back to Portland and shoot. at Casco Bay Lines

\\ Miles outside of the eye of the storm With a siphon to lure out a prize and award While avoiding the vile and bizarre that is violence and war // ° ° One of my favorite spots in Wagon Hill Farm. Got here while the clouds contrast was peaking. Got through the trees and saw that the tide was perfect to get the shot I wanted. at Wagon Hill Farm

\\ With seven deadly stains, adhere the blame to crystal conscience The result's a lowlife countin' on one hand what he's accomplished // ° ° Fort Preble was incredible, and the view from the top was even better. The fort making a right angle with the jetty leading to the lighthouse in the background was the inspiration behind this shot. The contrast in color was a bonus. at Fort Preble

\\ Dead in the middle // ° ° I've recently been familiarized with the beautiful city of Portland, ME by @sailedaway. So much soul in this town that it's hard to ignore. You've earned my heart, Portland. This shot was inspired by the geometry and lines between land and water. The cloud contrast and position of the moon had a lot to do with it, also. at Casco Bay Lines

\\ All I need is one life One try One breath I'm one man // ° ° Color reduction helps you see the world in a different way, helps you individualize the colors and the patterns that they make. Practice multiple different types of photography to maximize your ability in each. at Boston Public Library

1

\\ If everything could ever feel this real forever If anything could ever be this good again The only thing I'll ever ask of you You've got to promise not to stop when I say when // ° ° City scapes are more few and far between than I'd like! Something about Boston always calls out the inspiration. The ducks, the leading curve, and the John Hancock tower we're all I needed to see to know I needed this shot. at Boston Common

9

\\ I carry it with me and I sing it loud If it gets me nowhere I'll go there proud // ° ° The inspiration here is quite apparent. The near full moon providing enough light to just about make this a day scene. I love the flow and swirls in the water breaking against the rugged coastline, and the layers between coastline, water and sky. at East Point Audubon Sanctuary

6

\\ Everything comes in threes // ° ° The inspiration of this shot comes from the collection of beautiful blue tones that all aligned into the frame. The viewfinders, water, buildings, sky, and clothes. They all came together in combination with the geometry of the scene to make a really cool effect. @sailedaway then pointed out to me that there were multiple groups of three in the shot, which I hadn't noticed, good eye! at Boston Marriott Long Wharf

\\ I never sleep Cause sleep is the cousin of death // ° ° Always wanted to shoot a "through the fance" cityscape. Walking over this bridge in Boston and I had to pounce on my chance. at Boston, Massachusetts

3

\\ True happiness in love, is Paramount. // ° ° Boston is a city of inspiration. Walking the historic streets had my brain bouncing through 1000 shots per second, it seems. This shot was easy to see, the colors so prominent.

8

\\ Goodbye, summer // ° ° It's been a beautiful but very windy day on the Seacoast. You can feel that chill in the air but happens every fall. Leaves are starting to hit the ground, and that crispness starting to fill the air. I've been playing with single color focus lately, and this scene just lined up for me. The reds in his outfit with the red in the background were too good to pass on. at Portsmouth, New Hampshire

3

\\ I am the master of my fate, I.. Am the captain of my soul. // ° ° I have always(like many) had a facination with the Zakim Bridge. This was a passenger seat photo, and I love the way in which all of the lines come together. But I can't wait to get it from the angle I have in my mind. at Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge

4

\\ Sail me away // ° ° I took this a few weeks back and just now noticed it scrolling through my Lightroom "to be processed" folder. The lighting was so perfect in this golden hour. I've been particularly loving shooting boats in this orientation lately, not entirely sure why. Something about the negative space of the water and sky, and the colors between the former and the boat. at Portsmouth, New Hampshire

5

\\ Life has no limitations, except the ones you allow yourself to believe // ° ° Last night was quiet in Portsmouth. Kids back to school and families going home from vacation. On my walk to the park I noticed that I loved the lines that lead your eye to the bridge from this angle. The sidewalk and roads to the bridge, the hill connecting it all together. at Portsmouth, New Hampshire
