Welcome. Edgartown News was born from the simple fact that I have ink and Dektol in my veins and I need to write and photograph more than I need air or food, and from my love for this little town where I grew up and raised my family, the town I have left a few times but can't quite shake for good. Here you will find wanderings and musings, photographs and commentary; the people, places, and happenings - past and present - of a small island town: my home town.

Derby, Day Two


This morning I broke away from my desk, ostensibly to mail a couple of letters and buy a loaf of bread, and while I was at it, walked into town and down around the finger-piers before heading uptown to the post office, getting my exercise and people fix in for the day; one of them, anyway. I made a conscious choice not to carry my big camera - this was not a photography excursion, too much on my plate today - but luckily, I always have my little G9 in my backpack because when I came around the corner of Derby Headquarters, I found this photo-worthy scene (that's the thing about photography - you just never know):

Red Ward and our harbormaster, Charlie Blair, discussing the ways of the world (and the big one that got away, no doubt). I was in a wee bit of a wistful and nostalgic mood, its being a grayish, post-Labor Day Monday morning; hence the black and white.
