After taking the new Sony RX1R II for a little hike in the mountains this weekend, I decided to take it down to the coast for a little more variety. I met up with Johnny and Rebecca Patience for a little coffee and cameras (all digital for us this time - gasp!) and then a little walk around the island. Here are just a few of my favorite captures from the walk taken the the RX1R II and a very light "polishing" by Rebecca's Lightroom Pro Set IV as before.Read More
Having lived and traveled all over New England my entire life, I have no idea how I ever missed the sleepy fishing village of Cape Porpoise in Kennebunkport, Maine.
I've been to Kennebunkport maybe 100 times in my life and somehow never followed the lazy Pier Road out to the point on Bickford Island.

Just before the new year, I had the enormous pleasure of doing a photowalk with the elusive Johnny Patience in Wiscasset, Maine. I first "met" Johnny online back in 2008 on Flickr. I happened upon a photo of his Dalmatian at the beach, shot with a 50mm lens and I fell in love with the gorgeous warm tones and smooth bokeh. Poking through his stream, I saw he shot primarily 50mm and decided this was a guy I needed to follow.Read More
