Revisiting The Same Locations

Posted April 20th, 2009 by   |  Uncategorized  |  Permalink

One of the neatest things you can do for yourself photographically is to return to the same location many times over many years and in many seasons. I was just reminded of this last month during a trip from Boston to Maine. One of the iconic landmarks along the southern Maine coast is the York Lighthouse in York, Maine. The first time I visited York was in 2007 during nice, 70 degree spring weather. This time, I was there during March and found myself caught in a blizzard! 

The two different weather conditions showed a completely different side of York taken two years apart. I’ll definitely be back again to capture more of this beautiful area.

    It’s so funny, I have read this advice from a lot of great photographers, but somehow, I never felt that it applied to me, the little guy. But many of my favorite and most revealing pictures emerge from the places I go back to again and again. I guess you are right after all.

    BTW, the (last) picture is amazing. It transports me back in time and space. I grew up south of Buffalo, on Lake Erie, and you captured the experience of the winter on the shore perfectly. I love this picture.

    They don’t have any monkeys. Lots of other animals though!
