Mark David Bailey is known around Bedford as a dad, a talented photographer, and a man with the patience and skill to balance standing stones.
Earlier this week, Bailey drove to Halibut Point with his daughters Lila and Nora to see Comet NEOWISE, balance a rock or two, and take some pictures.
The compelling image at the head of this story is 10-year-old Lila’s. It was the best shot of the night, with the 40-pound rock her dad balanced in the foreground, the sea, lights on the horizon, a scattering of stars, and Comet NEOWISE in good focus.
Bailey explained that he has re-committed to writing a long-considered photography book, and looks forward to partnering with Lila in the adventure.
