A photographer and an iPhone walk into a bar …

View from The Chowder House in Boothbay Harbor, Maine

From Spoon: This summer, our annual visit to Maine was short (just two weeks instead of a month), but sweet. We didn’t cook much, except for lobsters and clams (and jelly shots …), and spent most of our time with family – thus, there were fewer blogging opportunities than last year. (If you care to read our various posts from last July, click here.)

What we did, however, was play with our new iPhones, which we got right before we left. Ted was especially enamored of the photo app Hipstamatic, which allows you to change virtual film, flashes and lenses for photos with an edgy, vintage feel.

Our good friend Kevin Colby is working this summer at one of our favorite Boothbay Harbor haunts – the Boat Bar at The Chowder House, an old wooden sloop fitted out as a bar. As we sipped our summer cocktails – Mount Gay rum and tonic – Ted snapped away with the iPhone to create these cool images. All except the panoramic shot and the photo of Kevin were taking using Hipstamatic.

  1. Dear Spoon & Shutter: Thanks for the info on the Farm Boat. I caught up with it at Capitol last week and am already eagerly anticipating this Friday. I told them that you’d been helpful by responding through your blog site, to apprise of their schedule. Didn’t realize you know Kevin too, or that he’s at the Chowder House this summer. Will have to stop in and see him. Thank you for being such a wealth of information~

  2. Beautiful photos, and dashingly handsome bartender! Can’t wait to sample the Kevin mixology at the Boat Bar next month! Cheers, Christie Brooks King
