East Orleans in May


"On an overcast day at the end of May, I pulled into the driveway of what appeared to be an abandoned house with a huge Rhododendron overtaking its front façade. What attracted me to this scene was the visual contrast between the flourishing plant and the weathered house. Though there was no car in the driveway, I went to a side door and knocked. An elderly woman appeared and smiled. I asked if I could photograph the front of her house for a book I was doing about the Cape and Islands. She was surprised by my request, and said that I was the first person to ever ask permission. Apparently every year when the bush was in full bloom, a lot of people would pull into her driveway, snap a picture and hurriedly drive away. I thanked her, set up and photographed the scene. Two weeks later, I gave her a framed picture of her house. She was thrilled and I was grateful for the opportunity." -Jon Vaughan, Photographer Fine Art 11” x 14” Photograph by Jon Vaughan, dry mounted on acid-free foam board, custom cut and hinged on an acid-free matte.
