We first introduced you to George Brown and his stunning photographs of
Ocracoke in February, 2009.
The retired family therapist and social worker, who had been taking
photos for only a few years, and his wife were spending the winter on
Ocracoke, after having discovered the island the summer before.
Brown shared those photographs with his followers and Ocracoke lovers
on his photo blog, www.pixadilly.com
He came back the next winter, and he’s here again this winter, sharing
his pictures of the beach, the dunes, the marshes, and the village in
When Sundae Horn wrote about Brown in 2009, he and his wife, Reggie
Mosser, an oncology nurse, were retired, living in Florida, and
traveling as much as possible. It was while living in Florida that he
first became interested in photography and took some classes.
The couple moved from Florida to Taos, N.M., last summer, but couldn’t
resist another winter in a rental home on the Ocracoke marsh. They
arrived on Ocracoke in mid-November and plan to stay until mid-April.
On Feb. 11, Brown began posting photographs of Ocracoke on his blog,
and he plans to continue into April.
He chooses a week’s worth of photos at a time and posts one a day. Each
photo has an interesting name and a few sentences from Brown about his
thoughts on the photo, which are part philosophical, part
informational, and all about Ocracoke.
You can see the photos from this winter on his blog. And you
sign up on the blog to receive Brown’s photo of the day.
If you are missing the seashore and counting the days until your next
vacation, this photo feast is for you.
We promise that George Brown’s Ocracoke and his compelling photographs
will not disappoint you.
