In 1987, Thomas and Lee Szelog were two lighthouse enthusiasts who visited a series of Main shoreline beacons for their second date. Two years later (and now married) they moved into the lightkeeper's house at the Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine. Tom kept a journal, as did Lee. Tom is also an award-winning photographer. Drawing from those journals and Tom's gift for photography, the wrote and illustrated "Our Point Of View: Fourteen Years At A Maine Lighthouse" in which they share their experiences, excitement, and pleasures of living at a lighthouse in every season and through all manner of weather. They even celebrate the gulls, cormorants, whales, seals who turn up at their door, as well as the people meeting and marrying in the shadow of their lighthouse beacon. Simply put, "Our Point Of View" is a joy to read and a 'must' for anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to live in a lighthouse in our day and age.

(From Tena Wallace) This book is absolutely amazing and that descriptive word doesn't even compare to the reality of the pictures and entries of your book. I don't think I have EVER read something and felt the emotion like I did with these entries. To read and feel the sandess, heartache, the joy and excitement along with the horror is the most amazing reader experience.
This book makes a great gift, it's not a one time read, it is a book to be enjoyed over and over!

Great pictures of a Maine Lighthouse taken by someone who lived next to the structure for many years.

"Our Point of View" gives the reader a unique opportunity to experience what it is like to live in a Lightkeeper's House on the Maine Coast. The wide range of beautiful photographs taken over the 14 years that Tom and Lee Ann Szelog lived at Marshall Point are fantastic, and the journal entries that accompany them are inspirational, to say the least. It is the perfect gift for family and friends, because you will be giving them an escape that they can enjoy over and over again!

I bought this for my mom for her birthday. She loves lighthouses and will be going to Maine next year to visit some. I thought it would be a good book for her. The pictures are wonderful and she has already finished the book-so I guess that means she enjoyed it. She says she would recommend it.
