The spiles in the water point sideways,

translucent water reflecting in the afternoon.

The sun shines through, creating a beautiful scene.

The water is still, and the spiles are silent,

a perfect moment to reflect on life.

Chelonian Attitudinize 20220828 850_2961Chelonian AttitudinizeA tortoise in an enclosure at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.

The radiated tortoise has one of the most interesting bodies of all animals. For instance, the radiated tortoise can live up to fifty years. Also, the tortoise's shell is composed of two sections, the carapace (the upper, or dorsal part), and the plastron (the lower, or ventral part). Both of these sections are part of the tortoise's body, containing blood vessels and nerves. This makes it so that the tortoise can feel if something touches it on the shell.

This particular tortoise is from the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island. Outside of the "World of Adaptations" building, lies this exhibit.  The tortoise moves happily around its exhibit, at its own pace and in its own time. As it observes its constantly changing environment, I realize how nice it must be to be a tortoise.

The view to the southeast shows the edge of a weather front across Block Island and Rhode Island Sounds. There is falling snow in the distance and sunshine on the distant horizon.

On a heading off Beavertail on Conanicut Island, a passenger always asks where the swells come from. I hand the helm to the mate and step out of the pilothouse. I point them along where I know the latitude line exists on the chart. Then I explain that the princes of navigation were sending us their regards.

The passenger not being familiar at all with the history of navigation, or our oceans, gives me a puzzled look. I give them a gentle lesson of Prince Henry the Navigator, Dom Henrique of Portugal, Duke of Viseu. The ground swells sweeping beneath our ship came from across the Atlantic Ocean. Far beyond the Vineyard and Nantucket was Lisbon and Porto, Portugal.

The swells, which caused the passenger without sea legs some concern, are a passing a message. The father of modern navigation is sending us his kindest regards. Across the ocean and time, we are being wished well. These are the embrace of the eons of travelers and explorers from far away.

Low Tide Gunkholes and Boats 20221008 850_4924Low Tide Gunkholes and BoatsAt low tide, there is a different world that appears at the shore. This is especially true of the gunkholes of Narragansett Bay such as Bissel Cove. The grasses and rocks appear from the water, the peninsulas and islands stand proud, and the boats change their views on their moorings. The clouds above shade the sun and the breeze causes the grass to rustle in a way that it cannot in the water.

Gunkholes hold a certain magic because they change attitudes. These are places that we don't approach full throttle. No, we ease in with caution and observation. This gives us the opportunity observe the bottom contours, the quality of the water, and nearby shores and islands. This is an introduction to slowing down and the rewards found in the change of venue.

How It Should Be. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl https://www.madefromrigallery.com/blog/2023/1/how-it-should-be Creating the right attitude

Dawn Approach

Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format

Dawn Approach 20221110 850_5634Dawn ApproachThe epitome of the small all around working boat, prepared for anything, ready to do anything. The echo of the famed naval architect C. Raymond Hunt is in this hull design. The boat, rigged with fenders all around means that it is ready to move or come alongside any vessel. There is a mounted towing post on the centerline in the stern behind the helm. And in the even fish are breaking on the surface, there are fishing poles rigged and ready. This is the best working environment traversing the West Passage of Narragansett Bay at dawn.

This is the best working environment traversing the West Passage of Narragansett Bay at dawn.

This is how early morning commutes should be. On a boat heading for a waterfront work site. People on the waterfront calculate time such that the "waiting is done on the other side." They are always a little bit early, because the weather might interfere with the trip. If you want to see someone who is always on time, go find a ferry captain. They are obsessive about the subject.

But being early has its advantages. When there is time to kill, there is an opportunity to reward yourself with a few relaxing minutes. It is time to breathe and take in the scenery. Then, swing the wheel hard over and set yourself up for work with the right attitude.

There is a relationship, at least in Southern New England, as many farms roll to the waterfront. I have found myself in many of these buildings over the years. From a construction standpoint, barns on the waterfront and farms make sense. Simple, sturdy, construction of durable materials for storage or other work purposes. At least, this is what the Marine Fisheries officials discovered for their work on Succotash Marsh and Point Judith Pond.

There is an ebb and flow of tidal current running between Gooseberry Island and Snug Harbor. This keeps the water clean in this strong current. The result is a variety of shells deposited from the pond. Quahog, scallop, oyster, and others. As a result of these currents the shells are as pristine as the surrounding waters.

My scrip of joy, immortal diet,
My bottle of salvation,
My gown of glory, hope’s true gage;
And thus I’ll take my pilgrimage.

A gentle wake as the operator works among the cormorants and gulls swimming on the surface. This is something about the rugged individual appearing at the helm of this workboat. Like most of his kind, he respects the environment that he is working in. He is deliberately not disturbing it. 

The power of the vessel is being held for work, not speed; this power has another purpose. Like the competent helmsman we see here, the strength under his control is gentle. But when the strength is necessary, it will come forth with responsible abundance. This deserves respect.

Rippled pipe sets on a barge. Aluminum shows evidence of work and oxidation on the rigid inflatable workboat. Lines secured on colorful cleats, ladders pointed skyward and a gangway at the ready. This is the waterfront before the day's work begins.

Waterfall Burbles 20230121 850_6607Waterfall BurblesSilt filled water eddies and splashes as it finds a rock before tumbling downward in the village of Usquepaug along the Glen Rock Reservoir

Waterfall in Usquepaug,

Burble and gibber,

Jabberwocky in the water.

 

I stand and watch

As the water tumbles down,

Foaming and frothing,

Making its merry way

To the sea.

 

And I can't help but think

How much like life

This waterfall is.

 

Always changing,

Never the same,

Tumbling and churning

Until it finally reaches

The end.

Found Trail 20230123 850_6794Found TrailIn the early morning, breaking camp in the woods, I wander. Someone asked about a trail, a path, but could not see it. So, I find myself sauntering among the pines, maples, birches, and the rocks above a pond's shore. There is the path. Beneath a coating of fallen pine needles on the ground, I find it. There is a light dusting of snow on the ground from the previous evening outlining the red of the needles. This is where we should explore.

A dusting of snow on the rocks, viewing north and east at sunrise from Rose Nulman Park in Narragansett, Rhode Island.

We cannot see this right now. This photo was taken on the last day that the private park could be open. It was clear and crisp, the sun was rising, and the morning left us with a coating of snow. It is a great way to remember the site until that "someday" when it might open to the public again.

Shell of Subtle Colors 20221231 850_6159Shell of Subtle ColorsSummers in Southern New England have seen an influx of red seaweed at the beaches. Torn from the seabed and washed ashore, it colors all that it touches. Then the sun mellows the coloring and reveals the biochemical reds and other hues.

The result is that the shells touched by the red seaweed have subtle hues in the material. The ridges on each shell accumulate coloring in various shades. In later seasons, the array of colors at the beach becomes varied and wonderful.

Commercial vessels are either at work, being worked upon, or being maintained. That is the nature of these places. Something is always happening.

And if the vessels are not doing something, the appurtenances aboard them are. Cranes in the air, moving objects, or driving spiles. Activity is what makes the waterfront live.

Mid-Day Beach Drama 20230101 850_6400Mid-Day Beach DramaAt one time, there was a structure upon these piling. A place where people perambulated, stopped to chat, or dropped a line seeking fish.

Fires came. Storms came. Over a century passed. The structure on the pilings went the way of all material corruption. All that remains are the stumps driven deep in the sand. We remember the past in photos, art, and nostalgic memory.

But still, as the waves from the sound pass in and out on the tide, the pilings hold our fascination. The waves break upon them. The water pools around them. And in our days on the beach, new nostalgic memories form.

The Bird Asked a Question

The Bird Asked a Question 20220828 850_2969The Bird Asked a QuestionAn Ostrich at Roger Williams Park Zoo with an inquiring look and something on its mind. Grilling passersby under the bright mid-day sun.

The ostrich is the largest bird on earth.  Because of this, it has incredibly long strides of up to 16 feet when running. These strides allow an ostrich sprint at up to 45 mph, holding the record for the fastest flightless bird on earth. 

This particular ostrich is from the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.  They are in a rocky exhibit where the zoo used to have Aoudads.  The ostriches enjoy this exhibit, and walk along their fence, watching visitors.  They run around feeling as wild as any wild ostrich ever could.

Foggy Beach Impressions 20221231 850_6265Foggy Beach ImpressionsFog gives us a sense of forced perspective coupled with mystery. The patchy fog drops down and we don't know what is beyond our view, but we know that something is there. We hear the waves on the shore beyond what we see. We see shadows and images, but we don't know exactly what they are. We know that the sun is there due to the increased glare, but where it is and its height is unknown.

We move forward with care, captured by the moods of the fogged in beach. We know what we are going, but not what will be there until we arrive. We are aware of our heightened senses beyond sight, and our outlook changes.

Beetle Cats in shades of worn buff stacked and awaiting restoration at the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, Rhode Island.

The first boat that I restored was a Beetle Cat that I managed to buy with money earned from quahogging when I was fourteen. I only had $400, so I had to restore that I bought. Fortunately, I was the son of a marine surveyor and had access to Leo Telesmanick (the man who more than likely built these very boats). He took a liking to me and taught me well. Restoring that boat (which is still in existence and is as a living being to me) was one of the most formative experiences of those years.

Fog creates moods. At sea, mild anxiety and a touch of fear. This gives heightened awareness. On land, it creates a soft light that creates a contemplative mood.

On the beach this morning, between two jetties, both moods are present. There is a sense of awareness and a moment taken to examine what is going on in our lives. But this is what morning beach walks are for, to think about life and to consider its meaning. And that ray of light beyond the fog in the east is the hope of a clear view of a new day.

Shells come from hard materials. Their elegant shapes should fit the description of sculpture. It is difficult to believe that they occur in nature alone, but they do.

As shells wear, another quality appears. Their structure comes from layers. Within those layers, we see both subtle and bold strokes of color in masterful blends of patterns.

Whomever brought this artful creation together is brilliant. And we are thankful that they shared it with us on the sands of our beaches.

That is lines, not line. The tide line is not mechanical, stopping at one point. It is natural and does as it must in the weather. Storms have been through recently (in this photo) and have pushed the tide line further up the beach. As a result, the wrack line (seaweed line) is further up the beach. But in the fog, the visual appearances become clear.

Bald Eagles at Rest 20220828 850_3030Bald Eagles at RestBald Eagles at rest upon branches at Roger Williams Park Zoo

The bald eagle is one of the only "sea eagles" in the world, one of only eight species.  This means that they hunt for fish, unlike most eagles. This creates many of the scenes that we see today of bald eagles swooping down from incredible heights to snatch fish out of the water.  It's truly incredible to watch, and just shows how majestic these birds are.

These eagles live at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.  These eagles cannot fly, though, as they were involved in accidents before they came to the zoo.  They are fed by employees at the zoo and are stuck in their enclosure. Yet, they continue to prove their wildness, hopping from branch to branch and amazing everybody who sees them.  They truly show how their handicap has not affected their quality of life, even though they have to live at the zoo.

Inside of a breaking wave at Narragansett Pier, Narragansett, Rhode Island. The winter swells off of Rhode Island Sound were breaking against the stone pier from the southern exposure; I miscalculated the power and timing of one wave and had my camera focus on the inside of the breaker with the afternoon sun shining through.

A note of caution. I spend a lot of time on the water. I am accustomed to calculating the period of wave breaks and intensity of their shore breach. And even at that, I can be causght by a lack of predictability. I also am fortunate to use a lens to help me reach out and am able to place myself in a position of safety. I allow for the unpredictable wave and even have someone keeping watch over my actions.

Every year, there are people who find themselves swept off of these very rocks. Extreme caution should be the rule, not the exception.

About Rhode Island's Golden Eagle. Photography by Keith R Wahl and Text by J W Wahl https://www.madefromrigallery.com/blog/2022/12/about-rhode-islands-golden-eagle Around the world and Rhode Island too

Attentive Golden Eagle

Attentive Golden Eagle 20220828 850_3037Attentive Golden EagleA Golden Eagle in its habitat at Roger Williams Park Zoo

The golden eagle is truly fascinating in its expanse of interesting facts that never cease to amaze. For instance, it is the most commonly used national animal in the world, representing the nations of Albania, Mexico, Austria, Kazakhstan, and Germany.  Also, the golden eagle is a worldwide species.  This is due to their diet.  Golden eagles do not eat animals that consume pesticides as much as other raptors.  When a bird has too many pesticides in its body, the shells of its eggs become thinner.  This makes it more likely for something to happen to the chicks before they hatch. Because golden eagles do not eat as many animals that consume pesticides, they do not have this occur as much as other raptors.

This particular eagle is from the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.  Sadly, this eagle cannot fly, as it was involved in an accident before it arrived at the zoo.  After it was rehabilitated, the zoo gave the eagle a home on exhibit.  Although this eagle cannot fly, it is just as incredible as any wild raptor.

Fleet In and Traps on the Pier 20220618 850_9405Fleet In and Traps on the PierA stormy day to the north, a bright day to the south, the lobster traps are on the pier and the fleet is in at the Port of Point Judith

Light and light levels at the shore, at the pier, are far more than an aesthetic. The levels of illumination are indicators of how difficult or easy one's day might be. It is something that impacts a way of life.

In this case, the light to the south over Rhode Island and Block Island Sounds is bright. To the north and northwest, where the current prevailing wind is coming from, is ominous. We make our judgement by the prevailing wind. We stay in port at this point because a blow is coming.

As a result of coming winds, there is plenty to do in port. It is a time not only for securing vessels and doubling up dock lines. It is also a time for necessary maintenance on vessels and gear.

"Salt is born of the purest parents: the sun and the sea" ~Pythagoras

Salt. It is the typical measure distinguishing seawater from lake water. And once something is salty, it permeates everything. Salt creates a harsh environment by being salty. It changes the character of materials by creating natural batteries. This means that potential electrolytic and oxidative actions exist wherever saltwater exists.

This salt effect also changes the nature of color. Chalking and flattening of color especially occurs in its oxidative action. Sunlight adds a bit of energy to the mix, catalyzing reactions. It is the nature of the environment of working on the water. This is why people who work boats can fix almost anything; they are always in a battle with salt.

Here we see a series of three yachts or pleasure vessels with working boat origins. A lobster yacht or picnic boat from its lobstering origin. A catboat with its fishing boat heritage. And a cutter rig (a Bermudan Cutter) with an origin of piloting.

The vessels have evolved and have various uses here in Watch Hill. The working efficiency is perfect for day runs for the lobster boat style. The little catboat is a pleasure for day sailing. And the sturdy cutter is wonderful for cruising in a variety of conditions.

A significant part of our past. The ornament style that we had when our now teenage sons were toddlers. Ornaments that could be handled without breaking. As years have gone on, the ornaments have been supplemented year by year with ornaments that our sons made. Others signify places we visit in the given year or things that our sons do. But it all started with letting children that the spirit of the tradition with making a bold approach knowing that this was theirs in all ways too.

The waterline view comes from another boat, a dinghy or tender, or the shore. It is a view where we look at boats from their waterline up and then whatever is beyond. It is a view of discover put in context.

Here, the context is classic maritime styling in the village of an old seaside Rhode Island town. The area, Watch Hill, is a trifle "tony", visited by celebrities and stars, but remains linked to a working past. The boats here maintain that context; either working vessels or a derivation thereof.

Small Waves on a Rocky Beach 20221122 850_5886Small Waves on a Rocky BeachSmall waves roll in on Deep Hole's rocky beach in the light of the setting sun in South Kingstown, Rhode Island

We rarely consider the effort that waves make in coming to shore. We see great mounds of swells a few hundred yards from shore, but only a ripple meets the shore. Why is this?

Between the shore and the great waves are shoals and bars. In this case, a rocky shoal rising up from the bottom to near the surface. The waves break on the shoals, and then a small sand bar, before reaching the shore. With might effort, they make their finally reach to achieve their goal. They reach for the shoreline rocks drenched in the light of sunset. From our perspective, it was worth the effort.

Winter brings the unexpected. It is waking up to a blanket of fresh fallen snow. It is consulting the media to see if we have a "snow day" at school. It is holidays with snowmen as avatars. It is a time where we have momentary celebrations of beauty. Yes, we must jump into the necessities of the day, but first we have little celebrations.

On a snowy night in the Holiday season, a reindeer family flying by stopped for a a rest. Glowing in the night as the snow fell, the younger of them sought sustenance and comfort. And the neighborhood welcomed them. Because in the Holiday season, it is only right to welcome a mother, father, and babe.

When viewing or handling boats, a question comes to mind. Is the tide more powerful than the breeze? The one that prevails tells us which way the boat will point.

On this day, the flooding or inbound tidal current prevails. The wind was blowing out of the east and the boats are bows to the west. The current is superior to the wind.

Tender to the Three Ships 20221211 850_6062Tender to the Three ShipsWhen the Three Ships came in on Christmas Day, how did the crews come ashore? This little tender in Tiverton, Rhode Island is ready for those Three Ships.

"I saw three ships come sailing in

On Christmas Day,

on Christmas Day

I saw three ships come sailing in

On Christmas Day in the morning..."

(17th Century Derbyshire Hymn)

The question is how did they all come ashore when they came into port? The answer, provided they land in Tiverton, Rhode Island, is a Rhode Island made Stur-Dee tender prepared for them. The "Little Lady Christmas" had a story with a local news station (WJAR) a few days after I took this photo. Festive, fun, and meaningful.

Soft Closing of Day at Deep Hole 20221122 850_5926Soft Closing of Day at Deep HoleThe day closes softly at the beach at Deep Hole in South Kingstown, Rhode Island

Soft tones. Gentle breezes. The shore. A bit of solitude. These are the elements that should bring an end to a hectic day.

It's not that a hectic day is a bad thing. It usually means that we were productive. It means that we accomplished something. But we need to tone down that attitude before the evening with our families.

Shore scenes like these are the perfect means of decompression. These views move the heart to a different state of heart and mind, fulfilling the soul.

Clouds and Illumination in Mill Cove 20220825 850_2890Clouds and Illumination in Mill CoveThe sunrise illuminates the early morning scene of clouds, reflections, and haze in Mill Cove, Wickford, Rhode Island

There is nothing quite like waking up to a coastal morning. Wickford offers a little more because it has a variety of coves, shoals, and islands. This is all off the West Passage of Narragansett Bay. Ample mooring space offers an array of boats, classic and modern, to complete the scene.

The weather offers more interest. There were clouds overnight in this case, blanketing the earth and providing insulation. This held the moisture in the environment. Then, as the sun rises in the east, the clouds burn off, providing a lens that disperses all forms of spectral color. A classic coastal view.

The Sand Dollar Legend: On the top of the shell is a symbol that looks like a star, a reminder of the Star of Bethlehem that led wise men to the Christ Child. Around the star is an outline of an Easter lily, a reminder of the Lord’s resurrection. There are five holes in a sand dollar – four around the ends of the star and one in the center. According to the religious legend, the four holes represent the four wounds of Christ when his hands and feet were nailed to the cross. The center hole represents the wound made from a soldier’s spear. When you turn over the sand dollar, you see the outline of a poinsettia, the Christmas flower. And if you break open a sand dollar, five dove-shaped pieces emerge. Doves are often used in art and literature as a symbol of peace and goodwill.

There are many reasons why I take photos. To document the time and place. To mark a season. To record a beatuful scene. This photo, "Respectful Angler" is documenting what did not happen.

I have seen this boat around the Port of Galilee. It was coming in after a fall afternoon of fishing and they were seeking to offload. But the desired spot had harbor seals bobbing in the water and playing.

The skipper of this vessel made the decision that I would have made. Everyone surrounded the gunwales of the boat and took watch. Then, they backed down under a slow throttle and found another spot.

These are those outdoors types that I have encountered over the years. Rugged exteriors with hearts of gold. And the last thing that they would do is harass or harm wildlife. In fact, they go out of the way not to do so.

Down at the Docks with Coffee. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl https://www.madefromrigallery.com/blog/2022/12/down-at-the-docks-with-coffee The best prescription

Morning Clouds Above Mill Cove 20220825 850_2887Morning Clouds Above Mill CoveEarly morning clouds refected from above Mill Cove in Wickford, Rhode Island.

Are you down? Are you perky? Do you need inspiration? Do you need a place to contemplate? Do you need a moment to breathe? The prescription is the same regardless. Go down to the docks early in the morning with a cup of coffee. Look across the coves as the sun comes up. Relish in the reflections of the clouds. Watch the boats swing on their moorings. And you will walk away better for the visit.

This is advice from an "educated wharf rat", so take it as it is. But the preponderance of evidence says that this prescription works every time.

Absolute stillness. At the edge of a snow-rimmed reservoir behind a high school in the late afternoon, this is what I found. Not a breath of wind, a glass surface on the water, and snow all around. The sun has taken on that low glow of winter and it was peaceful. We need these places to sit, observe, and drink in.

Icy Annaquatucket Sunset 20221212 850_6092Icy Annaquatucket SunsetThe sun sets across the tableau of ice and snow in the woods at Annaquatucket

There is a subdued feeling at the end of the day at the edge of the wood. The snow has fallen, so there is very little sound (the ambient noise muffled by the snow). The sun filters through the trees and its reflections dulled in the ice.

The sensation is comforting and sentimental. It is as if we can hear a distant refrain of "...over the river and through the woods..." We cannot discern if the singing is real or in our minds, but it is welcome either way.

"Time never changes

The memories, the faces

Of loved ones, who bring to me

All that I come from

And all that I live for

And all that I'm going to be..."

Heirlooms by Amy Grant

On the green in the village of Peace Dale, Rhode Island, there is a path where Christmas trees are lit every year. Children decorate the trees with various ornaments. The area has a dedication to our late neighbor, Janet Gould.

You see, our sons never knew their grandmothers; they had passed long before the boys' births. But Janet was there when the boys were small, across the street. She was the closest thing that the boys knew as a grandmother as babies. So, I decided to preserve some photos of the area at Christmas as heirlooms.

Wickford Morning at Cedar Tree Point 20220825 850_2849Wickford Morning at Cedar Tree PointScanning to the south in Wickford Cove in the early morning as the first light of day comes up in the east over Cedar Tree Point.

Navigation is all about arriving at a designated place. Exploration is about discovering that place once one arrives there. There is an overlap of elements that answer the questions of what and where. That overlap is a form of navigation turned inside out so we can describe the place and go there again.

In my life, I have had to apply the art and science of navigation to the concept of exploration. Exploration is by far more stimulating and exhilarating in the end. The difference is a discussion for another time.

The photograph here is about exploration from a place that we know, Wickford Cove. Well, there is a thought that we know it. In fact, we turn corners to discover it in a different way. We are turning a corner and looking south as the sun rises in the east. This is an inlet or "gunkhole" off of Wickford Cove known as Cedar Point. It is an amazing and oft overlooked spot where catboats dock and the water reflects. It is early morning, and the unspoiled reflections make us want to stop and enjoy the spot for a moment.

Cold Sunshine

Cold Sunshine 20221212 850_6084Cold SunshineA cold late afternoon with sunshine showing through birches and reflecting in marshland with snow along Annaquatucket Road in Northi Kingstown, Rhode Island

There is a day when in the right place at the right season that I realize that cold has come. This applies to wherever I have been on this planet when cold was in season. It is not so much the temperature of the air, but a ringing of the combined senses.

When is that time? When does this realization dawn? When the light of the sun seems to go cold. This is where the real chill strikes the body and the consciousness.

I saw this upon this season's first snow. While "Winter" has yet to be official (at least according to the solstice), winter cold has come. There is snow on the ground, and it is sticking. And the light of the sun is cold. Any other indications of winter are superfluous now.

The Lighthouse Keeper's Watch 20221209 850_6055The Lighthouse Keeper's WatchOn a cold, windy, and bright early afternoon, a gull at Conimicut Point keepa watch over the lighthouse in the background where Narragansett Bay meets the Providence River.

There is always that one gull. The one who stands watch, even on a cold and windy day. The one that keeps their eye on you as you walk by.

This particular gull had an interest in my observations of Conimicut Lighthouse. No matter where I moved, this gull insisted on being between me and my view of the lighthouse.

Now we could say that this gull was Conimicut's Lighthouse Keeper pro tem. It is far more probable that the gull was aware that it was lunchtime and was seeing if I would drop a morsel of food. That would be my theory.

The end of the day after the first snow of the winter season. The sun celebrates as it flares through the lens of the snow-covered trees. The ground tries to melt the snow on the ground around the moss, but the cold air fights back. The teenagers in the high school nearby wished for more to have a snow day, but that was not to be. Even so, there is magic in the first covering of white.

Most days at the shore of Rhode Island do not end. No, they melt from the brightness in the west to the gentle hues to the east. They have a gentle shift from day to night that is soothing. It is a gentle ushering from afternoon to evening.

This is why people come by the shore to walk and fish in the evening. It is for the calm. The sound of the waves is there to lull us into a better way. The slow transition of the days soothes the mind and is a balm for the soul.

Morning Person at the Docks in Wickford 20220825 850_2842Morning Person at the Docks in WickfordThe light of dawn paints layers of colors across Wickford Cove, reflecting light off of windows while marina lights still shine.

Any sailor, pleasure or commercial, knows that to know a shore place one must walk it. To explore it, one goes alone where one allows curiosity to roam free. The best time to do this is at dawn when the air is cool.

And when I saw dawn, I mean the true dawn. Dawn is when the line between day and night is distinct in the sky. The purples of night are as clear as the nascent rising of the sun. It is a time where even automated lights face confusion as whether to shut off or stay on. Where there is night on one side of the scene and there is sunlight reflected in eastern facing windows.

The village of Wickford is one of these places. It is a place that people think they know until they put their feet ashore and walk it. And then they find magic hidden around corners and in inlets. It is a place worthy of exploring in full.

What's New is Old Again. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl https://www.madefromrigallery.com/blog/2022/12/whats-new-is-old-again There is virtue in preserving beauty

Recently Vintage Waves

Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format

Recently Vintage Waves 20221112 850_5764Recently Vintage WavesA recent scene at Matunuck Beach that is has a vintage feel. There is a storm offshore driving the waves ashore upon the remnants of an old spile. A gull skims above the waves.

There are moments in the now that seem vintage. Waves rolling to shore in azure and aqua are reminiscent of an ancient painting. And then, as soon as the waves come ashore, they themselves are history.

So, we live in a world where the recent becomes vintage as soon as the incident occurs. That is save for the artist's brush or the photographer's camera. Because beyond the concept of the temporary nature of the waves, they are beautiful. And there is virtue in preserving beauty.

Stopping by at Conimicut Point on a windy not quite winter day, there was nobody on the beach. That is save for some gulls, shells, and a lot of coarse sand. From a distance, there was a lump that could be wood, but it seemed to move.

I changed lenses and then moved in with all the stealth that a man in a red hat could muster. The lump moved. Then, as I focused in, it looked straight at me. On the sand bar that forms the "point" of Conimicut Point was a Hawk with its back to the wind.

The only question that we are left with is this: Do hawks eat Quahogs?

The Other Shell's Story. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl https://www.madefromrigallery.com/blog/2022/12/the-other-shells-story The best stories will make you smile and break your heart

Ravaged Quahog Shell

Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format

Ravaged Quahog Shell 20221209 850_6037Ravaged Quahog ShellA ravaged Quahog shell on the beach at Conimicut Point, Warwick, Rhode Island

I love finding shells on the beach. They are a fascination that tell stories of all types. They are of interest in many ways.

There is also a sad truth to shells. Chances are, if you are finding a shell on the beach, the previous resident has met its demise. In the case of many Quahogs such as this shell photographed, it was someone's lunch (usually a gull).

But the Quahog shell photographed from Conimicut Point has a different story. There are organisms, marine worms, that will drill into a shell and consume the occupant. Usually, the holes will cover the entire shell, so this one is a trifle unusual in appearance. So, in this case, the story is a little different, but still a learning experience.

A Gull in Milky Sunlight 20221105 850_5376A Gull in Milky SunlightA gull flying in milky sunlight with threatening skies moving in over the Port of Galilee

We can learn a lot watching a Gull. What is the wind direction? What fish are working on the surface? Are they drifting on the air currents or fighting the wind? Are they flying away from something or towards something?

In this case, there is light to the south filtered through the clouds. To the north, something threatening is moving in. But at this moment, the Gull is floating, so the breeze has not picked up yet. There are no fish in the area because the bird focused on the camera and nothing else.

Low Tide at Snug Harbor Lighthouse

Low Tide at Snug Harbor Lighthouse 20221106 850_5536Low Tide at Snug Harbor LighthouseSnug Harbor Lighthouse as viewed from walking from Jerusalem at low tide in Fall

People in Rhode Island hold to the old village technique of measuring where one is from. The second metric is how long they have been there. These are important factors in Rhode Island life.

Me? I have been all over the state. I grew up in Warwick (Warwick Neck to be specific). But I sailed all over Narragansett Bay. Many times, I ventured outside of the bay to other areas. I was a child of Narragansett Bay as much as I was a child of Warwick Neck. My perspective became different from most Rhode Islanders around me.

So, on a Fall afternoon walking from Jerusalem at low tide, I use a lighthouse to recall my young adventures. This is the place that I passed every year, after all. And lighthouses are way markers of navigation through both physical and temporal space. Both where we are going in the present and where we have been in our memories.

Fall would come in the late 1970s and it was time to store my father's boat for the season. We would start on a chilly day from Warwick Cove to bring it to the area between Snug Harbor and Potter Pond. Kenport Marina was the name of the place back then, and "Dave" was the manager and mechanic. This lighthouse helped mark the final turns to Kenport. The tide would run hard here, and it was easier to handle if we headed into the current on the ebb. And it all looked just like the photo. This is the right place at the right time.

On a Clear Day After a Storm

Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format

On a Clear Day After a Storm 20221112 850_5798On a Clear Day After a StormA clear day the day after a storm at Matunuck Beach. The waves power ashore, the wind is evident in the clouds, the fringe of the storm is on the horizon, and an undertow is forming on the edge of the view.

On weekends, we like to do something together as a family. On this weekend, a Fall storm had recently passed, so we decided to go to the shore. Our younger son in tow, we walked the wind-swept beach.

This is where we take the opportunities to teach about the environment that we live in. We live in a place of great beauty with danger in equal quantities to the unaware. We like to bring awareness to the fore.

On the horizon, we see the remnants of the storm. We see how the chop has formed on the swells and the wind on the clouds in the sky. Now, we teach about the nature of the waves and their timing. "Count the intervals between the waves and their reach on the shore." "Look at the beginnings of an undertow as the waves draw back." "Listen to the tumbling of the rocks as the undertow pulls them off the beach." "Now that you know the dangers, look at how beautiful the scene is."

Skiffs Create Polyglots? Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl https://www.madefromrigallery.com/blog/2022/12/skiffs-create-polyglots Treatise of an educated wharf rat

Beyond the Rip Rap in the Puckerbrush

Beyond the Rip Rap in the Puckerbrush 20221110 850_5620Beyond the Rip Rap in the PuckerbrushAn early morning view of a skiff pulled up beyond the rip rap and into the puckerbrish at the URI Bay Campus in Narragansett, Rhode Island

I am convinced that the Rhode Island mariner is the origin point of many polyglots. There is a logic in this thought. I have to examine my life as I have had to learn a few languages in my travels. Growing up as an "educated wharf rat" on the Rhode Island waterfront brought me there.

On the waterfront, we have to learn the maritime lingo to survive. Then we have the colloquialisms that are from New England in general. Finally, Rhode Island has its own jargon along with its own accent! Our minds are always translating and transposing words.

So, viewing a skiff beyond the rip rap dragged up into the puckerbrush may need a translator for some. But not to the Rhode Island mariner. Anyone here on the waterfront would understand this. Perfect erudition.

Sloop Profile in Soft Early Morning Light 20221110 850_5585Sloop Profile in Soft Early Morning LightSoft, hazy, early morning light shines on the profile of a sloop moored against the backdrop of the Jamestown Verrazano Birdge in the West Passage of Narragansett Bay

In the early morning, shortly before sunrise, there is a time where colors are sublime. When on Narragansett Bay, these colors become enhanced when the dew point is at a certain point. Then, a fine mist, a haze rises from the water and clings to the surface. This gives a slight purple color to the very air around us.

When the sun's first purple light kisses this weather effect, this coloring permeates. The water, if calm, will reflect this hue and cast mauve light all around. And then the day begins.

Single Hosta Flower 20220705 850_0650Single Hosta FlowerA single Hosta flower on its vine as it opens early in the day.

I was in a conversation yesterday and someone asked me why I take photographs. My answer was simple and straightforward. Because there is so much in the world that people are missing. I am bringing it to their attention. Sometimes that which is obscure should be more obvious. In my view, sometimes the single flower is as important as the meadow.

While the photo that is the subject of this blog is not in a meadow, the concept applies. A single flower on a vine as it opens to the day is a wonderful sight to see. And I, for one, appreciate its appearance.

A Weather-Beaten Log at Moonstone 20221002 850_4508A Weather-Beaten Log at MoonstoneLow skies, stormy seas, and a weather-beaten log along the dunes at Moonstone Beach. Someone has stacked a stone or two upon the ancient tree.

Rhode Island's Moonstone Beach is unique in that it is closed to the public for part of the year. It is a nesting place for the Piping Plover and borders a National Wildlife Refuge. The result is that it becomes a place that is a little wilder and more untouched.

But there is one driftwood log that sits on Moonstone year after year, season after season. We know not where it came from other than "out there". Some storm brought it to our shores.

People pile rocks upon this log and sand fills the hollows with the wind. Every season when the beach opens again, it is there, changed little but changed. Under the low clouds, it will weather, and when the sun comes out it will bleach. Someday, I am certain that this log will be gone, but it will not be soon.
