“The Queen.” Artist Geoffrey Stein says: “This portrait is made using collage material from altered historical photographs of Her Majesty’s wedding, coronation and other official events. They were originally published in The Times of London, Getty Images, Shutterstock and Reuters. Acrylic and pencil on canvas.”

“Sasco Creek at Southport Beach” (Kathleen Burke)

“The Golden Lion at Compo, 1955.” Photographer Peter Barlow used a Rolleicord camera with flash; this was taken from a dinghy. “1955 was before the harbor was enlarged, before it became a marina, and before it was named for someone,” Barlow says. “Most people called it ‘the yacht basin.'”

  1. I love Peter Barlow’s photo. (And it feels almost as if Bogie will be seen in the next picture in this sequence.)

    I remember when the Golden Lion came to “Cedar Point” as we called it in the 50’s. I think I recall Peter Barlow’s boat as well. Maybe a flag on the stern. A caricature of Peter perhaps. It was moored back to back (or close) to Bill Snaith’s Figaro. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I love the collage of the Queen and it reminds me of something I was told. We are born with the size eyes we grow up and old with. It’s why babies always seem to have such big pool-like eyes. As a demonstration of that theory, Queen Elizabeth is the most photographed person from birth to 100 years old ever, and you can see her face changing around the same sized eyes. Just a little trivia.

    Mothership giving birth? Looks like the Metropolitan Opera chandeliers to me. 😉
