loons going up because you arrived too late in the day.
Here’s one last “one hour out” tip: Get the word
out about what interests you as a photographer.
Recently, a photo on my desk spurred a delivery
man to advise me to go to Seeleys Cove, near his
summer place, as he had seen a bald eagle nearly
every weekend through the summer. It’s only about
30 minutes away from my home, so it’s on my list
for a photo outing.
Whatever part of the world your one-hour trip
takes you to, you are likely to meet warm, friendly
people, so let your curiosity roam, but ask permission
before going on private property or taking close-ups
of people. Ask them questions, show an interest in
what they do and tell them what your photo interests
are. It will help you get some great images, believe me.
Keep dreaming about that two-week photo
vacation. But this weekend, pack your gear and take
a photo trip “one hour out.” C

photos within a short distance of his home in
New Brunswick. Going inland, he found a solitary farmhouse, busy squirrels in a feeder in a
local park, a rusty, abandoned truck and a
chickadee perched on a branch.
