Gate

_DSC1472 copy

Snapshots and photographs differ in what you see. Either you take in the whole scene to memorialize your presence in this spot at this time. Or you draw the viewer by engaging him in a detail. This gate is like a poem. There are many unstated explanations. Take what you will. I did not go through the open gate though it beckoned. I was in Boothbay Harbor. You shoot the harbor and the water and the lobster boats…it helps to look a bit further.
