This picture was taken on a foggy morning from the entrance to the construction site during renovations to the hotel shortly after its purchase by Tim Harrington in September 2020. The photo shows the building in the process of being painted white. The top of the tower in the upper right is still painted yellow, the hotel's signature color for many years.

The photo above was taken from the dock of the Claremont Hotel. Greening Island is visible in the background. Image 1, taken 40 seconds later, shows Hieronymus tacking among the other boats. Image 2, taken 35 minutes before the start of the race, shows Hieronymus sailing out of Southwest Harbor toward Greening Island with the tip of Clark Point in the foreground. Crew: Joe Neilson, Spencer Nighman, Mary Kate Murray, Mel Steinberg, and Greg & Marc Crossley (on starboard side). The description that follows is from an Ellsworth American article on July 17, 2019 by Stephen Rappaport (see link below). ### At 2 p.m., about an hour after the cruising division began its race past Sutton Island, 15 Friendship sloops lined up between Clark Point and Greening Island for a race that would carry the fleet out into Great Harbor, to Spurling Rock off the corner of Great Cranberry Island, then to Bear Island off Northeast Harbor, the can buoy at the entrance to Somes Sound and back to a finish where the race began. A light sea breeze picked up as the race progressed then died with the fleet packed together off Bear Island, race committee chairman Scott Martin said Monday morning. As the tide turned, the breeze picked up giving the fleet a good race to the finish. About two hours after the start, first across the finish line was a local boat, Albert Neilson’s Hieronymous, built by Ralph Stanley in 1962 and still homeported in Southwest Harbor. Close behind was another local boat, Alice E, believed to have been launched in 1899 and sailed daily by Downeast Friendship Sloop Charters in Southwest Harbor. The Woods Hole, Mass.-based Hegira, launched in 1980, finished third. According to Martin, who raced on his own Eden, Mount Desert Island is home to the largest fleet of Friendship sloops — about a half-dozen — anywhere. “We’re blessed,” he said Monday. Martin hopes to start a regular series of Wednesday afternoon races for Friendship sloops after the upcoming Rockland rendezvous. “It will be very informal,” he said. “No handicaps.”

  • 2016-03-05
The Callender House was the first summer cottage built of brick in Bar Harbor. When this photograph was taken in 2016, the Jackson Lab owned this structure which is located on the Schooner Head Road just outside of Bar Harbor. The history of Bar Harbor is the history of the rich and famous and the story of the Callendar House fits right into this history. The imposing “cottage” was built in 1901 for Mrs. John Callendar Livingston, a member of the prominent and incredibly prosperous Livingston family, by Fredrick Savage. The structure was Savage’s most formal design and also the most expensive (partly because just before it was completed in 1901, the entire building burnt leading to a near complete rebuilding). Savage, himself, was a native of Northeast Harbor and the vast majority of his work consisted of cottages and hotels, showing the rise of Bar Harbor’s place as a “summer colony”. Savage built cottages in many styles including several prominent Queen Anne and Shingle Style structures showcasing the dominant design trends of the late 19th century and early 20th century. The Callender House, however, can be seen as firmly colonial revival in design and was the first summer “cottage” built with brick. At the time of its construction it was praised by the Bar Harbor Record for both its refinement and its modernity. In 1992, the Callendar House was purchased by the Jackson Lab at a foreclosure auction. (Source: Maine Preservation).

George Soules photographed the interior of the Criterion from the balcony with a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR and a Canon 24mm tilt/shift lens using available light, which there was little of. To the naked eye, the space does not look nearly this bright. The first image (angle view) is a four-slice panorama with a 140° field of view. It is a composite of 12 different frames. The second image (straight-on view) is a six-slice panorama with a 190° field of view. It is a composite of 18 different frames. Both images were shot at f/8, ISO 400, with three different exposures for each slice. Exposures ranged from 10 seconds for the main room to 1/25th second for the chandelier.

  • 2015-11-14
To get this photo, I waited until late fall after the leaves were gone. I parked at the Holiday Inn which was closed for the season and walked across Route 3 to the metal guard rail along the section of road that crosses Duck Brook. Once in the ravine, I located a spot at the edge of the water that I thought had the clearest view of the bridge, and even from there I could only see two of the three arches. The left and right arches each span 89', but in the photo, the left arch is completely obscured by evergreens. I set up a tripod with a Canon 5D Mark III camera and a Canon 24mm tilt/shift lens. With the camera mounted in landscape orientation, I shifted the lens all the way down to capture the lower part of the scene and all the way up to catch the top of the bridge. Because the ravine was deep in shadow while the inner part of the center arch was in full sunlight, I had to take multiple exposures ranging from a half second to 125th second, which is seven full stops, at f/11 with ISO set to 50. Later in Lightroom and Photoshop, I stitched the lower and upper halves and manually blended the exposures. Note also that I focused on the bridge, but also took a shot focused on the large rock in the foreground and blended-in parts of that image to get more depth of field. - George Soules
