Faith, family, friends, and music - it ain't the hoky poky, but that's what it's all about.
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 the wanderings and musings, photographs and commentary; the people, places, and happenings - past and present - of a small island town: my home town.

I was able to break away from my pre-Easter cooking on Saturday evening, ultimately in search of the blood moon I'd been hearing so much about. The moon shots didn't work out as planned, at least to my satisfaction, but I did end up with a few images that I'm pleased with. The moon was beautiful, however, rising large and ominously blood-orange behind the light house. Unfortunately, I was not able to do it justice. Next time.

My photog daughter and I went for a walk on Monday evening, cameras in tow (of course), down through Sheriff's Meadow, out past Eel Pond, then along the beach to the lighthouse, and just as we were thinking, "Not much going on around here - how many more photos of this lighthouse do we need," we came across a young couple at the Lighthouse - newly engaged, as it happened, out enjoying their brand new status along with the glory of the evening, so what could we do but give them a little mini shoot to help them celebrate. Both Asad and Michelle are physicians, in the process of moving from Chicago to Boston (and now planning a wedding). Lovely. Ironically, our first thought upon seeing these two frolicking beneath the lighthouse was, "Darn, they're in our shot," but it turned out to be a really fun encounter and photo session. This is what it's all about for me, folks - people and connections, and is one of the big reasons I love living here.
