“Sailors believed that a compass rose tattoo would bring them good luck and ensure that they made it back to shore alive. Considering the rough lives these sailors endured, with unpredictable seas, malnutrition and other hazards, some luck was needed indeed.” When I’m sailing the roughest seas I need some luck to make it through.
Ghost House - post restoration The Victorian farm house on Route 125 by the Foote Farm II development, 3.7 miles west of Middlebury. This house had been in a derelict state for many years, but was recently restored. The inside is still unfinished while it waits for a buyer. I last photographed this house in January of 2005 when it was known colloquially as the "Ghost House" due to its decrepit state and its architecture reminiscent of the Addams Family abode. www.flickr.com/photos/ad...
