TIDEWATER: Havre de Grace, Maryland
HAVRE DE GRACE, MARYLAND I met up with Harry Markel, a long-time friend and photo colleague yesterday for lunch in Havre de Grace, Maryland.   The town was "pre-season" and we had a nice little lunch at one of the local eateries and then proceeded to drive around town.  Some of this is documented n my Tidewater Book but I always think that I can do it again better which is why I take longer than anyone to finish anything.  Here's a spread from the book on Havre de Grace and a few pictures from yesterday's outing. Concord Light from book and in yesterday's IR picture.  I think the IR has graphic potential although I suspect it won't substitute for traditional photography.  Photography is sometimes like a nervous tick that turns into a dance so I am finding it interesting and plan to pursue it. havredegracepagebook

Since I was last up to this quaint looking town, some developers have gone absolutely bonkers and built probably a thousand townhouses along the shoreline.  And while they look a bit mass production, they have a GREAT VIEW!  The Susquehanna and Chesapeake merge right here and the views AM and PM must be first rate.

Brown Photo Worth visiting in town are the modest Chesapeake Maritime Museum and of course the world famous Duck Decoy Museum.  The Duck has had a bad time of it on the Chesapeake! The Park along the waterfront is a must.  It is meticulously maintained and with yesterday's clouds lent itself to Infrared photography.

Lunch with Harry turned into a sales occasion and resulted in both  TIDEWATER and the WWII MEMORIAL BOOK being sold by Washington Street Books and Antiques.  Another little bit of serendipity.... I look forward to exploring this unique collection curated by John and Kathy Ann Klisavage.
