Vine­yard Haven, Mas­sachusetts 41°45'N 70°59'W Pho­to­graph by Bev­erly Booher

When I was on Martha’s Vine­yard it was like a dif­fer­ent world to me,” says Ohiobased pho­tog­ra­pher Bev­erly Booher. That dis­parate feel­ing in­spired this shot at the Gan­non & Ben­jamin Marine Rail­way in Vine­yard Haven Har­bor on a cool morn­ing. Booher—who is fond of pho­tograph­ing win­dows “for the mystery be­hind them”—says the light­ing and the jux­ta­po­si­tion of in­door and out­door spa­ces are what ini­tially drew her at­ten­tion. “It was so warm in­side and yet you had the feel­ing of the out­side, the wa­ter and the cool­ness.” This is some­thing south­ern­ers may never know. As for the rest of us who are cooped up in­side and pin­ing for our boats, this shot en­cap­su­lates a sea­son end­ing too soon. It’s a vivid pic­ture we un­for­tu­nately know all too well. “It was a dif­fer­ent world for me,” says Booher, “and this was a win­dow onto that world.”
