PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL:  I have no idea what Delmarva is like once the tourists begin to arrive, but I suspect it has the same battered, half-populated look it had in April when I was there. The towns are working towns with too many shops for rent and good breakfasts. Of course battered and under-populated was what we were after, and with my friend Gary as guide, we pursued the likeliest roads toward the shore. That meant we were often on unpaved paths and eventually, always at a dead end. Those edges I yearned for can be hard find, constantly shifting.  In the end, it is not the edge we were after but convincing shots.
