Inside Portland Head Light

Many of you have seen my shots of the exterior of Cape Elizabeth's beautiful Portland Head Light.  This morning, I was lucky enough to be allowed to take photos INSIDE the column of the lighthouse, looking up the ancient metal spiral staircase.  This is an HDR--a high dynamic range photo composite of three separate photos, taken to showcase the best of the highlights, midtones and shadows in the scene.  It looks dizzying to me, and that is just how it felt! 

I had been warned that I wasn't allowed to climb the staircase to the top, and I have to say I was sorely tempted to give it a whirl, but it was so overwhelming looking that I decided to stick to the ground! 

You can click on either of the images to view them larger.  Please feel free at any time to share my blog posts or websites with any of your friends and family, and I encourage you to become a friend on facebook as well by clicking the Like button on the right side of my page.  We photographers need all the support we can get! 

Thanks for looking!  Cindy

My pictures on Fox 23 Morning Show!

Yesterday morning, Fox23 featured two of the bartenders from the cover article in this month's Portland Magazine in which I have the cover.  Shahin Khojastehzad and Tatum Thistle of Navare Res and Salt Exchange respectively talked about their signature drinks and restaurants all while Fox23 splashed tons of the pictures I took for the article.  What fun!

A Fruitful Week. . .

I've been photographing a lot of fruits lately--how could I not, when there are so many delicious "subjects" lying around in the fruit bins of the Farmer's Market, Grocery Store and Rosemont Market?  Some of them, as you saw, are even literally "hanging around" waiting for me to come along! 

Hope you're all enjoying Summer!  Cindy

Photography show at Vincent's Ear Gallery in Deer Isle!

Happy July everyone!  I wanted to announce that I have a show of my flowers going on at Art Gallery Mozelle , in Deer Isle, Maine for the summer.  The images above are the ones featured in the show.  They have been printed on a wonderful acid-free museum-quality watercolor paper called Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, which has amazing depth and color representation.  They are all 13x19 inches, which is a great size for matting and framing.

So, if you happen to be in the general area this summer, stop by Art Gallery Mozelle, which is just outside of Deer Isle village on 42 Bridge Street in a nice old cape house that you can see the ocean from.  For more information, you can call the gallery, Wednesdays through Sundays, 1pm to 5pm at 207-348-6722.

Please forward this blog post to anyone you think might be interested in seeing my photography show.  Thanks for your help in getting the word out!  Best wishes, Cindy
