a great photographic artist,
for whom this was an enchanted place

Monk's Cove, Bourne


  1. A touching tribute to a friend who loved this enchanting place. He may be still enjoying it and your beautiful image,dear Robert, somewhere in that light... Adele

  2. This picture is worth a thousand words, and is a wonderful homage!

    cordially greetings,

  3. Ned suffered from severe diabetes that destroyed his eyes so he could no longer take pictures. He gave me the encouragement to
    get my wide format printer. He got one, and then he got another one. He did reproductions of their art for the best painters around.
    He knew color and tone and every way that his camera and his computer could control them. The last time I saw him, outside the Pocasset
    market, he asked me about my surgery, and told me he had talked with the same surgeon, who urged bypass on him. He was happy that
    he could walk hours through the woods, and so he did not want it. I fear the surgeon was right, but I know that Ned was happy, and I will think of him in the light that always shines on this shore.

    Thanks so much, Adele and Isabella, for sharing this memory with me.
