Kennebunk Plains, Maine
Such a thing exists, a sense of place, and I think you know it when you experience it. I think Monte Stevens knows it at Reservoir Ridge and the natural places he visits in eastern Colorado, I think Alex Kunz knows it in the chaparral of San Diego County and the Coyote Mountain Wilderness of Anza-Borrego, and I'm sure my friends Peter Tellone and Tracy Schultze experience it while in Joshua Tree National Park. It's a sense of belonging; a place where you can wrap yourself up in the environment and feel at home.
For me, while living in San Diego, it was strongest on Sunrise Highway where it overlooks the desert and Hollenbeck Canyon in southern east county. Both had that calming effect and because of that I believe the photographs just appear out of nowhere.
In the past few months I've found what may be my current place: the Kennebunk Land Trust which is a 15 minute drive from home and one of the places where we take Buddy for his daily walks.
