2018 Paris Hill Maine Founder's Day poster

July 12, 2018  •  1 Comment

It is almost time for another Founder's Day on Paris Hill, Maine. Here is the story behind this year's poster.

 

This year's poster is an concept that I had for a while. Finally it came together logistically. My "day job" of a mechanical designer has involved drawings used for manufacturing so the idea was to make a poster with three views of a car. The problem is, how do you get an image of a collectible car from above for the top view? We had been coming up with different ideas, but last year there was a lift being used for construction at the site of the car collection and so we finally had our opportunity.

Before we get to the images, some background on our poster child: this 1934 Packard 1106 Runabout Speedster by LeBaron was custom-ordered for Clark Gable. In the Bahre Collection it has been on display at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia as part of the Allure of the Automobile exhibition in 2010. And last year it won the Governor's Cup (Best of Show) at the Elegance at Hershey.

I started with the front, back, and sides.

And then I had to go up.

This photo is courtesy of Jeff Orwig, curator of The Bahre Collection. My camera has an aircraft cable leash attaching it to the basket; double-protection.

Here are views you will never have seen before:

Amazing, right?

It was another fun photo shoot. Producing the poster was a process that involved a lot of feedback; thanks to all. Be sure to make it to Paris Hill on July 21 this year to see this Packard and all the other amazing cars. You can pick up a special edition copy of the poster for yourself at the event too.

Also this year we made a special fund-raiser 2019 calendar. It is a collection of all the posters I have made for Founder's Day. The posters are adapted to fit the calendar format. To get your copy, go to Founder's Day or contact the Hamlin Memorial Library & Museum at 207-743-2980. I've heard it looks pretty nice, but haven't seen it in print yet, so let me know what you think.


King Ravine

July 11, 2018  •  2 Comments

It is past time for another hike. A friend wanted a recommendation of a hike in the White Mountains and King Ravine in Randolph has been on my list of places to revisit for a long time. So here we go.

At certain lower elevations, all the trees' leaves were partially eaten by a caterpillar. It made the light in the woods seem like springtime.

Looking back out of the ravine you can see forests affected by the caterpillar. Volunteers from the Randolph Mountain Club doing trail maintenance told us about the caterpillars. Thanks to volunteers like these, the trails were in good shape.

Looking at the headwall of the ravine. The top of the Chemin des Dames trail is is the upper left corner of the photo.

Entering the Subway was a little confusing since we couldn't find the markers at first. It became a treasure hunt to make sure we could enjoy all the twists and tunnels of the trail.

Next we went into the Ice Caves. Yes, July 7 there was still ice and snow down in the caves.

Common Wood-Sorrel back down the trail.

King Ravine is a great destination all on its own, or you can proceed up Mount Adams. We just enjoyed the day exploring the ravine. The trail does not have any steep climbs, but there is a lot of scrambling over large boulders as you approach the ravine. The scenery is spectacular.

Another Lake Living Magazine photo session, this one of Cornish, Maine. It has developed into a picturesque town in southern Oxford County. There is a park on the square, a number of small shops, and a large inn in the center of the village. This is where the photos were taken.

Lake Living magazine summer 2018 #1

For the 2018 summer issue of Lake Living magazine, I photographed the Bridgton Farmers' Market and nearby shops of Depot Street and shops on Main Street in Cornish. So this will be a two-part post. The cover will be from these images in Bridgton, but you will have to see the magazine to find out which one made it.

And, on a different day, the shops on the other side of Depot Street.

We always stretch ourselves trying to make images that look like summer Maine when it is late spring.

Cornish, Maine in the next post.
