FOUNDER’S FAVORITE Hello and happy summer to you! I thought I’d doing things differently from now on. Instead writing a usual editorial, I’m going to use this section to showcase a favorite seasonal photo and why I find it appealing. Several elements draw my attention to this image. First, I like the contrast between color and black and white. Second, the angle of the ship—sends my stomach rolling. Third, the seagulls activate my ears to their screams above the crashing waves. Finally, I hear the distant fog horn from the lighthouse. It’s strange; the boat is in turbulent waters but I still get a sense of peace. Sight. Touch. Hearing. That’s why this image appeals to me. That’s it for now. Keep thinking halcyon thoughts!
