"Tree and Parsonage" Star Island, Isles of Shoals

 

Hi there!

This image, “Tree and Parsonage” is the second of the five options that you may choose from when picking your print in the 1 and 1.5K pledge categories.

This is the old Parsonage, re-built in 1927 on the foundation of the even-older parsonage that was built in 1732 for the island’s Reverend, John Tucke. (His gravestone monument stands upon Star Island and is the tallest gravestone in NH - at 46.5 feet).

I’m always struck by the sheer poetry of winter branches. There are very few trees on the Isles of Shoals, but those that are able to survive the fearsome winds of winter have earned their place here. As someone who has survived quite a few fierce storms myself - both real and metaphorical - I sometimes nod to these bare-branched trees as I pass, acknowledging our shared experiences, and our commonality.

In a way, I strive for the same thing in my photographs and in creating this music; that deep sense of connection that comes from recognizing and celebrating that link between the personal and the universal.

Cheers, and happy spring to everyone!
