2013 My Hometown Photo Contest Winners
A classic shot with great energy; the composition draws you into the picture, and you catch the vibe of warmth and community. “Pizza Night” at Orchard Hill Breadworks is a highly anticipated event every Tuesday in the summer. “It’s a fundraiser for different local businesses and causes,” the photographer explains. “People bring their own toppings and pay $5 for a ball of pizza dough. You flip your own dough and put on your own toppings, and then Noah Elbers (the owner) puts the pizza in his outdoor wood-fired oven, which he built himself. He provides music as well.”

A painterly shot that could easily be mistaken for a Winslow Homer canvas. “A passing storm system created some dramatic weather conditions that I felt gave a good perspective on why Nubble Light exists,” notes the photographer. As a Maine coastal photo, the mood is spot on: light and dark, the waves, the rocks, the clouds rolling in, the sun dropping behind the cliff.

Two working boats, and two ways of life, cross paths in the early-morning mist of Pulpit Harbor: a clean composition with lovely, soft light. “The Heidi is one of my favorite hometown boats,” the photographer tells us. “She has nice lines, is well cared for, and her captain, Raymond Beverage, is one of the best lobstermen on the island. I was struck by how small she appears next to the stately schooner.”
