I love this short film about life, photography and 2 large boats about 100 yards apart on the beach. Enjoy.



A Look Back at Good Mornings in Shipyard Park (2011) by Peter A. Mello

Each morning I take a photograph with my iPhone using a program called Everyday to capture what the start of the day looks like at Shipyard Park in Mattapoisett, MA. I post these images to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ where they consistently get many thumbs up and comments. In fact, if I miss a day or 2, people get worried and email me often tongue in cheek complaining that their day got off to a rotten start without the image of Shipyard Park.

I have been taking photographs since I was about 10 years old and I’ve always been interested in using the media to capture time and place. The Everyday iPhone app is great because in addition to helping to set up the photo each morning, it also creates these cool little movies like this one for 2011. Enjoy.



FotoFriday: Surfin’ Snappin’ Learnin’ by Peter A. Mello

Alright, it’s mid February and the winter doldrums probably have you down a bit. Here’s a perfect educational boondoggle if there ever was one. The School of Visual Arts has a study aboard program which offers Action Surf Photography in Rincon Puerto Rico from March 5 – 13.

Pack your camera bag dude! Surf’s up! (Good luck getting your parents to pay for this)

The launch of ShipyardPark.com by Peter A. Mello

I started a new photoblog called Shipyard Park.

ShipyardPark.com

Back in the whaling days, there were six shipyards that built the whaling ships that sailed out of New Bedford and Nantucket. It was a busy, rough and tumble type of place back then. But no longer. I’ll be telling more of the story of Shipyard Park in the future, but for now suffice it to say that it’s a beautiful spot in every season and I’m trying to capture and share just a little bit of that.

I’ve been taking a photo every morning for the past month. It’s kind of like a local weather report. It’ll be interesting to see how things change over the seasons Let’s see how long I can keep this up. I’ll do some other things there too because Shipyard Park is a very cool place and you should be able to experience it too! I’d love to hear what you think about the park and project/website.

Rescue at Sea

Imagine after a lovely scuba dive you return to the surface to find that the anchor line of your boat has parted and your ride home is no more.  :(

What do you do? Take some pictures, of course.  :)

You are miraculously rescued by a passing boat :D

which then capsizes on the way back to port :(

and your camera is lost. :(

Then four years later somebody walking the beach finds your camera! :D

Here are the pictures and interview.

Sadly it’s the end of summer! I guess it’s time to “dive” into school and work!

The Boston Globe’s The Big Picture has some inspiring photos that might help. Check out their “Diving In” post which appeared on September 3, 2010.
