rapid river: part one: we took to the woods
one of my favorite places in all the world is a lovely, extremely off the grid, house on a river. i have visited rapid river with my family since I was a little girl and it remains as one of the most magical places I have ever known. the house where we stay is referred to as Forrest Lodge and is one of the top fly fishing spots in the northeast (maybe the world). it was also the house where Louise Dickinson Rich lived and wrote her Memoir – We Took to the Woods in 1942. One of my favorite things about the house is its history and that it literally feels like stepping back in time. It is almost exactly as she left it, her typewriter, the books on the shelves, the furniture and quilts. It’s amazing. I feel so lucky have been able to spend time there throughout my life and I knew in going back this last Summer that I needed to photograph the house and my family. I have been looking back at them as I am missing summer and sun and I thought I would share them here. these images were shot with my Rolleiflex twin lens reflex camera.
