It's easy to forget the we didn't always have cell phones, but without one I don't think I would have been able to coordinate this summer shoot with the crew of the Schooner Lannan. The plan was for me to be positioned at the end of the breakwater at Eastern Point and photograph her as she sailed in the harbor at sunset. Driving to get there through Gloucester, unsurprisingly, I ran into some traffic and got there a few minutes too late. Or so I thought. I shot a few good photos, but was a little disappointed that I didn't get exactly what I wanted. Then my phone rang. It was the captain of the Lannan asking if I wanted him to make another pass by me. I got better photos than I could have hoped for. As I was leaving, a couple that had seen me jogging down the breakwater to catch up with the boat, said, "Lucky break, them turning around." I pulled out my phone and told them it wasn't lucky at all.
