Imagine dozens of cottages, porches illuminated with paper lanterns of all shapes and sizes, loops of small lights hanging from most surfaces, and umbrellas with beautiful designs, lighted from behind…..and you have Illumination Night in the Camp Grounds of Martha’s Vineyard Island.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    I should say so, Phil. Do you remember, back in the mid 1950’s, when ceiling lamps with the electric wire wound on a spring, (think window blinds), was used to raise and lower it? There was a wave of Scandinavian furniture, hammock and fiberglass bucket chairs. Ceiling mobiles, too! Dang, I’m getting old! :-)

    Gee, Phil, I don’t think the 1950’s AD would correctly define a Paleolithic span of 2,000,000 BC to 10,000 BC. Perhaps you might be referring to Social Anthropology. As for being a regular historian, aren’t we all? Lol :-)
