P-51 Mustang "Little Friend" (My husband Bob's photo)
I had marked my calendar to attend The Wings of Freedom Tour at Laconia Airport to see the planes and take some pictures. I was excited about it. On display were two historical fighter boomers: a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress "Nine O Nine, and a B-24 Liberator "Witchcraft" with an escort fighter, North American P-51 named "Betty Jane."

We drove passed a patch of ferns, with perfect lighting late afternoon. I asked my husband to stop and turn around, he is very patient and is used to my requests.

"A mile by mile, turn by turn explanation of how to find 23 of the most farmhouse photo picturtorial scenes in Vermont with special Hints and Tips on the best time of day and best lighting conditions needed. Detailed maps of all the small country roads to you lead you to the Photo-Scenics. PLUS tripod hole diagrams to put your camera in the right place for the best composition." Arnold has added an insert of his images an a cd of his images plus update reports of the scenic areas. How could you go wrong with this book???? Arnold J. Kaplan author of this 5 star book (my rating), is 93 years old, still going strong he told me, Arnold has 80 years of photos. His photography is outstanding!!!
You are able to see his scenic photos by clicking on this Photo Guide for Vermont with tips on photo locations for fall foliage (click on the middle arrow to start the slide show and the book image if you wish to order.)
"I wrote this book years ago, because photographers would come up to Vermont and become frustrated because they could not find the scenes they had seen in calendars , greeting cards, magazines and books, and I was one of them. It took me three years of roaming around in the back roads of Vermont, and when I found one, I would record the directions. I did this until I found almost two dozen of the famous photo-scenics and finally wrote to book to help other photographers find them. Even Eastman-Kodak used my book when they sent a team of photographers to do a show featuring Vermont."

Something beautiful about waves.
Bob and I had plans to meet friends at York Beach, Maine and decided to stay overnight in Portsmouth. Listening to the weather reports for the weekend I was not sure this was a good idea but realized I might find great photo opportunties.
Next morning, (Saturday) the sun shining, we toured Portsmouth and headed towards Hampton Beach, finding the surf was really picking up.
The surfers were out in great numbers enjoying the rough surf and riding the waves.
We found a parking spot around noon, we wanted to walk Hampton Beach's stores and food concessions, it started to pour and appeared it was NOT going to let up, we changed our plans and headed home. How I wish we could have stayed another day, I was told the waves were up to 10 feet high. Thankfully NH did not suffer any damage from Bill".

I was not alone, I found children with their parents playing and running, feeding the ducks. Workers taking a lunch break, taking in the beautiful day. Bikers, sunbathers, people walking and running also enjoying the park.
What a beautiful day. I suggest taking the time to stop and enjoy a beautiful day, rejuvenating yourself.

We went to Weehawken,NJ, as luck would have it, it was a perfect day for shooting the skyline. Good lighting, clouds (clouds add interest to your image).

Our adventure has been fun, exploring new areas to us around the state. I shoot repeat images of the bridges plus trying to photograph the bridges each season of the year and always looking for better lighting....always striving for a better shot of the bridges.
