Stained Glass

I like to make wave photos where the water looks glassy like this Bierstadt painting detail.

On the Road

It can be hard to make a nice photo with three days of rain. Here we are checking in for two nights in Maryland.

Distant Shores

The distant cut from Mecox Bay to the ocean at Flying Point. The sun was just hitting the sand there and no other place.

Ugly Fruit

This strange fruit is an Osage Orange. They are an ornamental fruit with no know food use.

Key Features

Many of the better new homes I have seen this season include a large section of glass doors that can be folded back opening a wall onto a porch or patio. It all feels very LA to me.

Flip the Bird

When I roast a Turkey or bird I cook it in the conventional way, with the bird on it's back legs up. This bird was salted and rubbed with lemon then cooked at 350.

I added some stock to the roasting pan and basted the bird 3 times in the 4 hour cooking time. This felt like a moist bird and it did not need much attention.
When the bird came out of the oven I turned the roast over with the breast under and the back up. This step is critical as it encourages the juices to move into the breast meat.
A jacket of foil keeps the heat uniform as the roast rests before carving.

TIdal Pool

As a child arriving at the beach to find a mini ocean was a great treat. The strip of water split off from the ocean often isolated exciting discoveries.  Today we had a very long pool at South Main Beach, I did not spot any gems today.

New Machines

Becher & Becher look out, big gray machines have come to my house. This week National Grid decided that I needed a new larger and improved gas meter.

Winter's Eve

People ask me what the winter is like on the Eastend. When it's wet for a week straight it often looks a lot like this. Water Mill farm country and local vines.

Winter Light

The light at the beach today at 4pm was very cool as it caught just the tips of the foam.

And then a great sunset.

What I Do

My client likes Marilyn Monroe. From shopping Ebay & Lumas we came up with a full wall of reprints of vintage photos. I hung the collection this evening.

Rudolph Southampton

Rudolph was spotted at Little Plains beach today braving the storm. He might also be spotted on CBS tonight.

Surf is UP

I went down to the beach for a look at the waves. The surf was rocking with a few surfers taking a ride. They looked like surfing seals on their complete black rubber skin.

Roots from maple trees on Elm Street have reeked havoc with a rare village sidewalk.

Turn Around

I continue to be surprised about the number of modern flat top homes getting built out east. Part of this might be improvements in roof technology.

Coming Home

Tonight we came home on starship virgin Atlantic. It was very nice and it is good to be home.

Looking at the London from Waterloo Bridge with our first day of sunshine I wondered what Turner would think of the new skyline.

Floating Berries

My asparagus have little round red berries. I have not seen this before, I don't know how they missed being on Iron Chef.

Curse or Blessing

There was a time when the rich orange tones of Bittersweet Berries excited. For me the problems on the invading vines over shadow.

Christmas Treats

The Southampton Historic Museum on Meeting House Lane has some very nice decorations for sale in their shop this year.

Sailor's Delight

Red Sky At Night, Sailor's Delight refers to the sky looking away from the sunset, not looking into the setting sun. This view is looking east from Little Plains Beach.
