Arrangement in Stone and Plant.



AUGUST 12, 2009

I drove out to Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth today to scout some spots to photograph a family portrait tomorrow. The picturesque Portland Head Light could serve as a backdrop, of course, but I was more intrigued by the ruins of the fort. I hope to persuade the family to see it as “edgy,” rather than “decrepit.” In the end, though, they’re the clients, so it will be their choice.


I recorded this little study in colors and textures while I was there. I loved the layering of the old stone, covered with the fading paint of old grafitti, now being grown over by what I think must be lichens (that botany class in college was a long time ago!).
