To blog or not to blog, that is the question. Right now the answer is to blog.
We are Rose and Tim. We live in Arizona and we are photographers. Husband and wife photographers. We have been photographing together since almost day one of our lives together and we keep on doing it. The best part of our working relationship is we keep learning from each other every time we shoot. It is great to do something you love with your favorite person. It is not work if you are having fun.
Why the name Downeast Photographers? Tim is from Maine and Rose is from Boston. There are a lot of downeast things in our lives. We spend a week in the summer in New England. We both love the Boston Red Sox. There is no resisting a good Yankee pot roast. And the best word to describe anything is wicked.
Downeast is a term for parts of eastern coastal New England. The phrase apparently derives from sailing terminology: sailors from the western ports sailed toward the east or down to get to the ports. A person from this are may be called a down-easter. Within Maine, the phrase, Down East may refer specifically to the state's easternmost region, also called Down East Maine.
We currently live in the east part of the Phoenix Valley which is also referred to as "down in the east valley".
