August is the annual tower crane issue for American Cranes and Transport. I had been following the construction of a new building right along the FDR Drive and had shot a number of images as the building was going up in its early stages. Tower cranes can be challenging to photograph when they are 20 or 30 stories in the air. I was pleased to learn that one of the images was selected for the cover.
There is something about lighthouses…I just love to photograph them in all types of weather. This summer the weather wasn’t cooperating in Maine when I shot four different lighthouses in one day along midcoast Maine. But with weather there are opportunities and Pemaquid Point Lighthouse presented one. While you can’t tell that lighthouse is on a bluff, the clouds that are drifting by below the structure certainly help create the visual sense that this lighthouse is overlooking something. Black and white was the way to go on this rainy, gray day.
