Old Plains Cemetery, North Stonington, Connecticut. Old Plains Cemetery is deep in the woods at North Stonington’s pristine park, Hewitt Farm, located on Route 2. I have visited this cemetery twice trying to locate the grave of my ancestor, Mary Cheseborough Hewitt who descends from the Mayflower Pilgrim, John Alden. I haven’t located the grave yet in this ancient cemetery but I am determined to find it. I learned today that she and President John Adams were 2nd cousins as Alden descendants, which may mean John Adams is my 2nd cousin, 9 times removed. 😝 #northstonington#northstoningtonct#hewittfarm#oldplainscemetery
Going in circles on the Arctic Circle. Petter Dass Chapel in #Træna . The single true #DarknessLightSeries light painting piece I managed to create during my three week stay as an artist in residence in this Nordic middle of nowhere. Although many concepts where imagined, reality decided otherwise. At first the archipelago was tortured by heavy winds for more than a week. But they settled. Then I drowned my drone and the lights. But I had a backup drone and additional lights coming from U.S. Then then lights got stuck in customs and I never saw them. And then the three weeks where over. A perfect lesson that even the best plans with all the backups fail. But hey, I still got to do a ton of my other passion that is landscape photography. So despite all the fails it was time well spent and an adventure o its own.

I had a 6 hour real estate shoot today that I thought was only going to take 2-3 hours. Turns out they had 2 dogs, 2 cats, narrow hallways, narrow bathrooms, 2 extremely long and narrow staircases that were a nightmare for the 3D portion and soo many more problems I can’t even begin to list 😂. Each problem on its own isn’t a big deal but if I had a checklist of time consuming obstacles then this home would have checked all of them. A paycheck is a paycheck though, and a happy customer is a returning customer whether or not I have to work my ass off to earn them. Some jobs are just tougher than others. Here is a couple more practice shots I did with my lightbox by the way.
