Southwest Harbor

Southwest Harbor

I drove back to Mount Desert Island on Saturday evening and decided to try to meet up with my group at Thurston’s Lobster Pound, but stopped at Southwest Harbor (Map) to take pictures of the sailboats in the harbor. I tried to take photos here in 2004 but my camera was stolen later in the day and I lost the photos.

When I pulled over, another photographer was out shooting photos already. I took out my tripod, camera, remote and started setting up. I used the graduated filter to keep the sky in color while also getting the boats exposed.

When I walked over to the area side of the dock area, I met Ted, who was the other photographer. We started chatting and it turned out he lived one road over from where Craig and I lived for a year and a half. He shared with me information on the photography class he was taking while in Maine. We swapped contact information and websites. I finally had a chance to give a moo card to someone who did not know me prior.

  • I have never been to Maine. Do you believe that? I hope to find time to get there within the next few years and spend a good portion of the trip shooting.

    Nice to see you had a good time and got to use your Moooooo cards.

    Oh, and I like the redesign!

    I think you’d like Maine. It’s worth the trip, Bar Harbor is a fun little town.

    Thanks for the compliments on the redesign. There’s still a few things I want to do, and also get the header linking 🙂

    Hi Diana,
    Just figured out that it was you who left a note on my blog. Well, I’m slow. So when are we shooting in CT??? I’m headed back to Maine in a week. Boy this shot looks familiar! -Ted
