I think I still have a couple of photos beyond these two from my shoot two Saturdays ago on Deer Isle, Maine.  I liked so many of the other shots better than the croporama of Stonington in this album, but that was the one that was explored by flickr.  I always wonder how they decide, or how they get "noticed". . .  Strange, isn't it?

True, both of you-but what I like is usually what sells to Maine office of tourism and visit Portland and magazines, but never to the competitions... I suck at competition, probably because I have sort of a commercial/editorial bent to begin with! :)

Two more shots from Saturday evening's sunset shoot on Deer Isle.  I'm so glad I took the time to explore around a bit!

A couple of weeks ago, I drove up to Five Islands waaaayyyy before dawn and got a few shots I liked before dawn actually happened (believe it or not, it was quite the underwhelming sunrise).  But afterwards, driving home past the Androscoggin Walking Bridge in Brunswick, I was able to capture some shots of the bridge with 20-30 foot sea mist wafting past that I was very happy with!  Thanks for the invitation to the group!

I went to Five Islands in Georgetown, Maine on Saturday morning and while there wasn't a very pretty sunrise, the pre-dawn twilight was gorgeous!

I'm calling this one, as you might well imagine, It Happens. . .  Once again, a shot from Stonington Harbor. . .  I'm trying to go through the photos a bit slower than my last trip, so I can enjoy them for a longer time!  I processed my Acadia trip so fast, it was over in a week!  :-)

Well, some harbors are definitely MORE photogenic, I must say. . .  But most of our harbors are quite pretty, yes!

I was visiting my mother for her birthday over the past weekend and got a chance to go around Deer Isle a bit near, during and after sunset--I'd never seen this little boat before, right in Stonington Harbor, but I thought it was adorable and immediately mentally titled the shot: Noah's Ark?

On my way home from my Five Islands pre-dawn shoot, I stopped at the Androscoggin Walking Bridge in Brunswick and captured some amazing morning mist over the river!

I am just in love with this beautiful photo by photographer, Rick Sammon!
 
Thank you Patrick Leger (https://plus.google.com/+PatrickLeger/posts)  for sharing this on Google+ and via email with +Frederick Van Johnson  

I\'m a long time listener of TWiP, and your last podcast with Rick Sammon touched me in a special way. Rick mentioned that the most important part of Buddhism was health. He could not have been more right.

I\'ve been suffering from Crohn\'s Disease since 1989 and have had numerous health issues due to this. In 2004, I was hospitalized and because of a hospital error my condition was made life threatening. For 6 months I was unable to eat, sit up, walk or do anything I my own. When I was allowed to go home I was trying desperately not to let my depression take hold of me. I was bed ridden and had limited mobility even thought I really wanted, desperately to get on with my life.

You don\'t have anything if you don\'t have your health.

I came across TWiT and TWiP and this helped me stay current with technology, as my profession is network security and I wanted to try to stay on top of things in a way or another. Before TWiP I wasn\'t into photography. I didn\'t really have my own gear, nor did I know what an f-stop was or aperture. I listened to the podcasts, and my wife bought me books from Scott Kelby, Rick Sammon and others. A few months passed and I bought online from my bed a Canon XSi. And like you say once in a while, I took lots of photos of my feet, learning aperture.

I won\'t drag this on, but your latest podcast couldn\'t have been more on target. Without our health it\'s difficult to be passionate about anything. It\'s been 10 years now, and I\'m still suffering from depression and chronic abdominal pain, of which I suffer episodes every single day. However I\'m better enough to work now and have a wonderful family.

I wanted you to know that you not only reach aspiring photographers but also those looking to escape and become better at something. With photography I can zone out and be elsewhere while making images I\'m proud to show. I\'ve taken a great liking to HDR photography so my latest images are HDRs.

I look forward every week for the show and I truly love how you explain things and how you really get your guests to open up and excited about photography. You all make it fun while tackling the tough subjects.

I wish you a very great 2014 (even though we twitted each other already), and most importantly health to you and your family.

Story

Commercial Editorial Photographer in Portland, Maine
Introduction
I am a commercial/editorial photographer based in Portland, Maine.  I shoot with a Pentax K5 dSLR and feel out of sorts if I am not out (or in) somewhere with my trusty camera in front of my face. I provide images for Maine Office of Tourism and Visit Portland.  Pentax recently selected me as a Pentax Professional. I am Portland Magazine's Contributing Photographer. My photographs have been published in Popular Photography, Old House Journal, Yankee Maggazine, Maine Food and Lifestyle Magazine, Digital Camera World Magazine, in England, Portland Magazine, and Maine Food & Lifestyle Magazine. I have shown my work in the Terrell Lester Gallery in Deer Isle, Maine, and have a gallery of matted work at Kennedy Studios in Portland. My camera has big dreams of someday working for magazines like Architectural Digest, dwell, National Geographic and Smithsonian Magazine, and I hope we can do that together!
