I fell in love with lighthouses in 1993, when I watched Block Island Southeast Light, Rhode Island, moved to safety. Since then, I have visited many lighthouses in New England and the Northeast, and filled my home with many lighthouse collectibles, many gifts from family and friends who indulge my passion. I have a varitety of items, from aprons, candles, and mugs, to replicas of all kinds, and a miniature waterfall.
My love of lighthouses is from a preservationist's point of view. They are unique in our nation's history, serving as a reminder of many different things. They are a symbol of a bygone era before our current technology, when these beacons guided ships to safety, and keepers who performed acts of heroism to those in trouble. They are also a unique form of architecture, through which their designers tried to bring a sense of style and beauty to a structure created for a singular purpose. In our disposable society, where old is often synonymous with useless, we have to fight to preserve this piece of our maritime past, because once the last lighthouse is gone, they can never be recreated.
So, this site is to showcase some of the best (and worst!) of my amateur photography, and perhaps provide some information and inspiration as well. If you like what you see, let me know. Sign my guestbook or e-mail me at the address below. I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
