It is not everybody who when choosing photogenic Maine as a site for making images would visit an abandoned stone quarry. However, there was some sort of attraction that drew my photo friend and me to the Long Cove quarry.

Perhaps it was the boldness of the stones

or the rich diversity of color, shape, and line

or the juxtaposition of the stones to the other natural elements surrounding them.

Perhaps it was the obvious fun of teenagers cooling off on a warm summer’s day.

Whatever it was, I am grateful for this casual Maine stroll that opened my eyes and even my heart to the mysteries embedded in ordinary, bold boulders.
