Tonight begins this year’s lecture series at Maine Media Workshops in Rockport with a slideshow presentation at 7:30 pm by noted street/travel photographer Peter Turnley. You can read about this presentation as well as tomorrow night’s presentation by Michael Wilson here. These lectures run through the summer and early fall and are truly one of the great photographic resources here in Maine – world-class photographers presenting their work to an audience of photographers, all free of charge. I know I always come out of these presentations charged and motivated.
I’ve seen both of these photographers present and they both really are wonderful – I’ll able to make Turnley tonight but won’t be able to make Wilson tomorrow because of child care issues, but hope to see you there! There are new presentations every week, so keep on checking back on the MMW site to see the updated schedule.
On an unrelated note, the weather here in Maine is not cooperating with the two big celestial events of the week – the Strawberry Full Moon tonight and the very rare transit of Venus across the sun tomorrow afternoon/evening. Hopefully we’ll see a break in the clouds sometime but things are not looking good at the moment.
I may not be able to photograph the Strawberry Moon this year, but I have updated my website with the final selects from the recent Worm, Milk, and Egg Full Moons. You can see my Adventures in Celestial Portfolio right here.
