The Fish & Game fall newsletter is out today. I spent a pretty rewarding October on several short trips to gather images and information for this, and by extension for the book: a short flight up the river to Hudson at between 500 and 1500 feet for some foliage shots, an overnight jaunt to Ithaca for the grain piece, and a lovely three days in Portland, Maine meeting and photographing some shellfish farmers and the wholesaler who provides the restaurant with such sterling seafood.
The bulk of the photography for the book is finished, which is a relief because it’s challenging to do two things at once. Who knows, I may even return to photographing my own dinner from time to time. Stranger things have surely happened. The book should be out next fall, in plenty of time for holiday gift-giving.
One of these days I’ll tell you about my new garden, though it’s hard to get excited about it when it’s largely dormant. Stay tuned.
