BB Note: People often ask me how I do what I do; how I see and create my unique art…Here's just a few thoughts on these three featured pieces this month:

In creating “One” (above) my “model” - the seagull - was very cooperative in striking a variety of poses. Kneeling down at surf’s edge allowed me to position the slice of fading daylight - that hadn’t yet been erased by the fog and setting sun - just right to frame the bird and create its silhouette. I was aware of the water’s motion and wanted to catch some light on the water to contrast with the dark sand, rock, and accentuate the rolling water. Out of several poses on the rock from Mr. Seagull, I chose this one as he appears to be looking back as day fades to night, maybe even thinking a bit of what once was. "Sagamore Clouds" (below) says it all. I have been all over the country and I find the clouds over the Cape to be the most interesting. I love to capture them, and on this day the "cloudscape" was intense from the overwhelming blanket coverage to individual clouds in the distance. and last, "Sand" (below) is nature at its best creating almost a near perfect symmetry via wind and water driven sand, with the sun "drawing" perfect shadow to define the design...too cool...I love this!

“Beautifully crafted and elegant photographs...monochrome images soar with crescendos that almost let you hear the surf and be swept along with it....

remarkable photography.”

A Note from BB

Summer a fading memory

Temps are falling and it is getting dark earlier...none of that is good in my opinion, but…

There's still plenty of nice weather left and lots of very cool things to do on the Cape this Fall. BBG will be open weekends right up to Christmas weather permitting. If you know that you are going to visit BBG on a Saturday or Sunday for sure, give us a call or email so we know to be in the gallery for you. Sometimes during the “slow season” we might lock up early and head to the beach; we don’t want to miss you if you are planning a visit!

Also, check out our BLOG and consider signing up. We would love to share more news and fun stuff with you via our blog format.

Enjoy the season!
