The Lighthouse Keeper's House is a fun crop and slight exaggeration of one of my previously uploaded favorites, The Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse. I thought the crisp lines and neat-as-a-pin styling of the house itself was so in keeping with the navy / marine sense of "ship-shape"ness (that my dad, an ex-Navy man, drilled into me) that it merited an image all for itself.
As I described on my previous image, On our drive to an event in New Hampshire a few years ago, we made several tourist-y stops. One of our favorites was the visit to the Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine. A glorious warm day in early autumn, the sight of the lighthouse was picture perfect.
A lighthouse on this site was requested by local mariners as early as 1807, but a formal proposal in 1837 was refused on the grounds that there were several other lights in the vicinity. Tragically, not 5 years later the bark Isadore wrecked just north of the island ... its ghost and phantom crew are still said to appear. Whenever I see an old house, I always wonder what scenes they must have witnessed and what stories they could tell.
Fine art purchases of this image will not include a watermark, and if I may make a recommendation ... this image will look its very best on the fine art paper choice of "picture rag."
