Happy As A
Happy As A
Happy As A, Bar Harbor, Maine, 2016
Printed on 11 x 14 matte archival fine art paper.
Edition of 10.
Happy as a Clam was one of my parents' favorite expressions, and I loved it as children love simple ideas. It was the visual imagery of the perpetual smile of two shells, not the idea that bivalves have simpler lives and therefore must be happier than we are. . .But happy with a perpetual smile is how I felt at the end of May 2016, when I finally made it to Acadia National Park. I fell in love with it -- as I knew I would -- and with everything about the area. Including the people. This family-run seafood shack was near where I was staying, and I dropped by quite a few times. It -- all of it -- made me feel, well, Happy As A.
I hope this photo captures the simple joy of a simpler place. That summertime joy of being alive!
