The Story Behind the Photo !

This story behind the photo has special meaning to me. Meet Dan Dan the Lobsterman of Boothbay Harbor, Maine. One of the finest people I have ever encountered in my travels. I was introduced by a friend that knew I was going to Maine to shoot lighthouses and fishing villages. Little did I know that I would meet such a person as Dan. He and his wife ran a local seafood restaurant in Boothbay Harbor, a tourist type town. It didn't take long to locate him as everyone knew him and his wife. Dan suggested I come along with him on his dory and see the harbor by boat and check his lobster traps. I spent the next four days with my new friend, shooting lighthouses and measuring lobsters in this harbor town. He took me to places and provided some history that I would not have found without him. I took this photo on one our many our trips around the bay. I sent him a 13 x 19, signed and dedicated copy, which I understand still hangs in his restaurant. Sadly, about 2 years later, I heard of his passing from the same friend that introduced me to him. RIP Dan...... Thanks for the memories.
