David PettyDavid Petty, like many before him, is drawn to the way light strikes the old buildings of the Seacoast. He finds himself rising early, to catch the architecture before people arrive on the scene. Our first Photo Gallery of the year is a work-in-progress, an evolving book of black and white images that Dave works on when not serving his commercial advertising clients.

Dave's bold straight-ahead vision brings a fresh new eye to these old Seacoast buildings. Compare them to Victorian images of the Davis Brothers and others. You'll see much unchanged, yet much to learn. Dave was initiated into Hi-Tech photography, so this collection is a fascinating departure for a man with two decades experience as a commercial craftsman. He currently maintains a studio in Hampstead, New Hampshire.-- JDR
