Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Imitates Art


Cape Neddick Light, or The Nubble Light as locals call it, is inΒ York, Maine. On the left is a watercolor by Sharon Farber, CT, done in 2011. On the right is a photo I took in October 2014. If you are ever in the area, this beautiful structure located on the rocky coast of Maine is a must see. You will not regret a detour to view it in person. πŸ™‚

    Love lighthouses. They are fascinating and never get “same old, same old”. Your photo is outstanding and the artist’s rendition is spot on. Your photo and the painting deserve a blue ribbon!!

    That’s a great photo and a fantastic choice for the challenge Judy. In fact, your photo looks a little like a painting.

    Excellent challenge response! I don’t know what it is about lighthouses, exactly, that makes them so appealing, but I just love them. We visited some real beauties down south during our RV trip. We’ve just started on the Maine lighthouses. Have you been to the lighthouse museum in Rockland?

    You Maine-iacs do love your lighthouses! That’s amazing, how close the two images are in detail!

    • If you mention lighthouses or covered bridges to a ‘mature’ New Englander, our pulses quicken immediately. πŸ™‚

      • That was similar to what I was thinking- looking at lighthouses never gets old. Neither does thinking about what life was like for the keepers and their families. Your comment about our pulses quickening with lighthouses and covered bridges is so funny and so correct! I grew up hearing a lighthouse foghorn in the distance and being lulled to sleep by it. We recently lived on Cape Cod for two years and could hear the foghorn in the distance the first night we were there. I am a light sleeper and my husband was concerned it would bother me but he learned differently.

  14. Great job on the challenge! I love lighthouses and we have been known to drive way out of our way to see a lighthouse.

    I was there 2 years ago Judy and it was a dismal, drizzly day with a horrific grey sky. The only good shot I got was when two Japanese ladies with bright red umbrellas moved in front of me and I added them to the shot. So glad to see you had much better luck! Excellent approach to the challenge.

    Your photo is absolutely the same this picture by Sharon Farber, Judy. Have you seen it before to make the same photo? Lovely!

    • When I was thinking about the challenge, I started wondering about the artists and photographers I’d seen on site there in the past. So, I pulled up my photos on one side of the computer screen and started scrolling through New England artists looking to see if I could find one that was even close. I had an ‘aha’ moment when I found her painting. I’m glad you liked it. πŸ™‚
