Steven’s First Car

My workshop ended with a lobster dinner and a grand group show yesterday evening. I met some of my students for breakfast, and then headed off for some solo adventures before heading back to California tomorrow morning.

In the afternoon I drove south to Port Clyde to meet a friend from college. I haven’t seen him in many years, and we reconnected on Facebook. Steven and I told each other the stories of our lives so far: the good and bad, the beautiful and the ugly.

This is an iPhone shot of Steve’s first car. Steve still has it. It dates from the 1920s, and it starts right up. He told me he bought it from the proceeds of his first summer job, from working all summer, for about $100.

    I’m headed back there on the 20th to conduct my third Midcoast Maine workshop in Tenants Harbor. I’m going to attempt to photograph the Olson House with the Milky Way overhead. I calculated one arm of the milky way will be right over the house if we’re at a similar angle to the house that Christina was when she was further down the field as Andrew Wyeth painted her in 1948. We’ll photograph Port Clyde at sunrise and sunset, as usual. My best selling image of Maine was taken at sunset from the lobster co-op, a place I’m sure you know very well. After all these years Maine is still very special to the both of us, for good reason!
