Everyone is always in a hurry!

Time lapse photography taken with a Canon DSLR. A picture was taken every 2 seconds and when you put all the frames together this is the shot. If anyone has any interesting ideas for this type of photography, post a comment and I will try to put it together. Time lapse lends itself to things that are moving such as a construction site, stadium filling up, etc. Look forward to your comments.

Erik Lorden Tries To Work Out A Bribe With Disco Inferno

Using our press passes, Erik Lorden the owner/chef extrodinaire of Passports and I try to work out a bribe with Disco Inferno, one of the refs at the Boston Massacre/Maine Port Authority Roller Derby Bout.

Disco wasn’t biting and as it turned out the bribe was unneccesary as the Boston Massacre led by Rockport’s Krush Puppy routed Maine from start to finish.

Shelby Shattered Sporting Pig Tails and Some Serious Ink!

Shelby Shattered sports some serious ink on her right arm. Shelby really seemed to set the pace during the bout. From my limited experience as a fan of the sport it looked like the Boston Massacre had a mental edge in knowing how to set the pace. It isn’t all about flying around the track as fast as you can.

I forgot to ask Shelby where she had her tattoo done.  The cloroing was strong.

Worth Seeing!

lowe-windowCharles A. Lowe Photos: Gloucester 1975

Charlie Lowe was a deceptively great artist possessed unconsciously,
with an extraordinary ability to universalize what he saw in life.  It was
given to him, through his eyes to open ours. His wondrous images guide
us to the perception of something around us, in others, in ourselves,
that was truthful, essential, natural, optimistic I think, poignantly
human, and the essence of our Gloucester.
Joe Garland, foreword essay to Lowe’s book A Portrait of Gloucester, 1983.

From the archives of the Museum, a selection of Gloucester photos from the year 1975 by Charles A. Lowe, photographer for the Gloucester Daily Times from 1957 -1981.
