Photograph of the Week

Album Cover 1970's
Tom, Beth, Barbara and Sally
Ragged Island

In a previous blog, I said I would talk about my adventure on Ragged Island in Harpswell, ME.  Until 1950, the island was owned by the poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay.  My cousins and friends took me out in the dark of night by motorboat for a sleepover on the island.  Tents were constructed of old sails, sheets and blankets.  We stayed warmed by a driftwood fire, drank wine and (they) sang.

The next morning broke warm and sunny.  I took this picture which we have always called, "The Album Cover."  What a wonderful memory ...

Photograph of the Week

Bear Skull

When I took this last March, I was trolling my inner Georgia O'Keeffe.  We have quite a collection of skulls, antlers and such around here collected from the Fox Chapel Area and from Potter County, PA which I use as muses.  I have been thinking about Georgia as I read "Savage Beauty: The Life of Edna St. Vincent Millay."  In addition to Edna, Georgia and Alfred Stieglitz were busy making their marks on the art world during the 1920's.  As a matter of fact, so was my grandfather's cousin, Witter Bynner.  I have found out while reading this tome that Witter actually asked Edna to marry him.  He did, however, withdraw the proposal.  I will discuss the wonderful time I spent on Edna's island in Casco Bay during another post.
