Light Housekeeping

For 14 years, nature photographer Thomas Mark Szelog and his wife, Lee Ann Szelog, lived next to the Marshall Point lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine. They watched porpoises and harbor seals, witnessed baptisms and weddings at the water's edge, took care of the lighthouse, and produced a book.

More stories like this"Our Point of View: Fourteen Years at a Maine Lighthouse" (Down East), with entries culled from the couple's journal, is richly illustrated with Thomas Mark's photographs (as below). "Our Point of View" won a 2008 Maine Literary Award, sponsored by the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance.
