An introduction to three of the galleries...
All along the northeast coast, from Newport to Nova Scotia, there are charming harbors that beckon with names such as Sorrento, Friendship, Roque Bluffs, Seal Cove, Fishers Landing, and Birch Harbor. Dinghies are the mainstay of these harbors. These small boats, including prams, skiffs, and tenders, can be very rudimentary in their design or works of exceptional craftsmanship. Dinghies remain at the ready, in service to their owners. They provide safe passage between the docks, floats, and shore and the lobster boats, yachts, and other large craft moored in the deeper waters of the harbor. The dinghy is symbolic of the people and landscape of these coastal regions: hard-working, pragmatic, picturesque, and rugged. - excerpted from Afloat on the Tide, published by Sheridan House, ISBN: 978-1-57409-285-1
As if presenting a gift to the beachcomber, sea sculptures are ceremoniously delivered on shore at the whim of the wind and waves. Waiting to be discovered, they nestle in the sand during low tide, only to be uprooted and succumb once again to the rising, churning tides. Most often sea sculptures, including shells, sponges, and seaweeds, arrive on land damaged by their tumultuous journey eventually becoming indistinguishable from, and part of, the sand. -- This gallery offers images of eye-catching sea sculptures, in all of their many forms, gifted by the North Atlantic. - excerpted from the self-published book, Sea Sculptures, ISBN: 978-0-9815185-1-0
Glass, Liquid, and Ice Capades
The three elements of glass, liquid, and ice are all subject to an infinite number of shapes and colors giving the photographer great latitude in expressing creativity and developing unique images that hold the attention of the eye and mind. The subjects in this gallery range from cat’s eye marbles, to fresh, frozen flowers, to whimsical trinkets, and marbles made of marble. The bubbles and swirls inherent in liquids add dimension and motion to an image, even when frozen solid. Depending on the density of a liquid and the movement surrounding the objects in it, bubbles will form and move very slowly, or they will appear instantly and rush to the surface. In the right lighting, bubbles act as a mirror and reflect the colors of the objects floating around them, adding a unique perspective.
