On the Waterfront | Lake Sebago, Maine

At the lake house, most days were defined by raindrops and rolling thunder. So, the second that the sun broke through the cloud cover, I was ready to venture onto the water. We motored out to Turtle Cove, where we spotted two legitimate turtles sunning themselves atop boulders, and circled the miniature rock island where the loons nest.

I brought my hardy rangefinder camera—the newest in my tiny arsenal—along for the ride, and was delighted to see that the results mirrored the kind of ever-so-grainy 35mm vacation shots my parents took decades ago. Cue the nostalgia! I’ll be toting my little Canonet around on dry land now, too.

Camera: Canonet QL17 GIII
