along the Lee Shore . . . " September 2011
In this, our 20th Anniversary year,
we would like to present a special themed exhibition (our 24th online
Night Photography Exhibit): "All along the Lee Shore . . ." This
show was open to all Night Photographers (NPrs), all photo media
- we asked only that their final outcome would normally be a fine
photographic print - b/w, color, alternative, fuzzy focus, whatever
- presenting mysterious, riveting nocturnal imagery with a maritime

"All along the Lee Shore
Shells lie scattered in the sand
Winking up like shining eyes, at me
From the sea."
(Lee Shore © David Crosby)
For inspiration, we suggested that artists first go no farther than
the David Crosby song "Lee Shore" - from which the title of this
show comes from (see a great 1970 performance here).
This song - a long time fave of ours - is a beautiful, quiet piece
evoking imagery of the sea, sailing, and the universality of all
living things - a mix of allusions to safe harbor and the darker
unspoken dangers of the lee shore - and for us, here at The Nocturnes,
continues our study of music as muse.
Be sure to visit The
Nocturnes Blog and let us know what you think of this exhibition.
We will be posting an annnouncement for the show there in the next
few days - feel free to comment!
