Photo of the Day: Seguin Lighthouse, June 2001

I took this photo in June 2001 on Seguin Island, off the mouth of the Kennebec River in Maine. I was visiting the island along with Jean Guichard, the great French photographer. We visited the caretakers on the island that summer, Jim Woods and Kris Pescatore (below).

The neat thing was that Jim was a huge fan of Jean's work. He said he grew up with Jean's famous "La Jument" lighthouse print on his wall, and it had inspired him to want to live at a lighthouse.
