About Us


Hello! We're Barbara and Richard ("Dick") Leighton. We've retired from our professions and now live in Brooklin, Maine. We've been in many places, but we're certain that we're finally in the right place at the right time. Barbara now is a landscaper and gardener; Dick now is a photo-essayist.


This website is where we lodge some of Dick's photographic images and essays, as well as information about his presentations and showings of those images. Barbara is Dick's muse and guide in life. She often suggests the subject matter for Dick's images, edits some of his longer writings, and organizes and manages the photography shows.

The Journal section of this website contains Dick's regular (often daily) posts of images and comments. These posts also appear on Dick's FaceBook site, often in shorter form. Most of his posts chronicle life in Down East Maine and are the "notes" for a potential book of photo-essays on that subject.

The Journal also contains longer pieces with numerous images, especially our popular monthly postings of "Postcards From Maine."
