The End of Camera Camp: Exhaustion

Camera Camp Exhaustion

David Wells worked us harder than any other teacher I've had at my four previous visits to the Maine Media Workshops. I literally had no spare time, no opportunity to shoot the little fishing harbor in the morning fog, no space to edit my work for my own use, and absolutely, positively not enough time to sleep. Late one evening I was sitting at the desk in my room editing my work for the following morning's class when I glanced up at the mirror and saw my laptop's screen reflected in my glasses. My eyelids were heavy. As I mentioned, the following night I simply fell asleep in the chair over my work.

I am so glad I came.

But wait, there's more! I'm spending tonight at my brother and sister-in-law's house in the suburbs of Boston. He got his company's box seats to the Red Sox game tonight. Fenway Park, the oldest stadium in the major leagues! It's a temple for baseball fans and I would never have dreamed I'd get to go there. Pix on Sunday if I have time to edit something.

Many more photos from Maine to edit and upload. They will appear here and on Flickr in days to come.
