I love this thing! I got this for my brother, who had the exact same one back in 1986. When he opened the box, he was shocked. It was like traveling back in time. It was the last thing he possibly could have expected. Back in '86, he was nine years old, and this was the first radio he ever owned. He could not have been happier.

About the Photographer

As her mother would have told you, Mel’s fascination with photography started at the age of 2, when she disassembled her mother's Brownie camera in the confines of her playpen.

Six years later she received a GAF 110-format camera for Christmas, and her real love of photography began. In 1979, the 14-year old bought her first SLR: a fully manual Pentax K-1000.

Shortly afterwards, she took a course in photography and darkroom at Cape Cod Community College. In the years to follow, she honed her talents in numerous locations throughout Europe, the UK, the Caribbean, and New England - particularly Cape Cod and Boston, where she split residence until moving to the Northshore of Massachusetts in 2008.

Mel’s love of animals and nature combined with summers spent snorkeling, swimming, and boating on the Cape, invariably led to her becoming a certified SCUBA diver in the late 90's, Since then, she's surpassed Master and Century Diver levels and has earned 13 specialties.

In 1999, she acquired a Nikonos V amphibious outfit and again united her love of nature with her passion for photography. Mel’s photographed myriad reef systems and shipwrecks; her favorites being Bermuda, Key Largo, and Walker's Cay, Bahamas — where she’s dived numerous times with hundreds of sharks in the famous Shark Rodeo.

Mel holds a B.Sc. in Communications from Emerson College and an MBA from Northeastern University. In 2000, she left a career in High Tech Marketing to pursue photography full time. Her education and years of experience have sharpened her artistic eye, her talent for composition, and her ability to connect with the viewer to tell a meaningful and moving story.

My interest in photography started at the age of 2, when I disassembled my mother's Brownie camera in the confines of my playpen. However, it wasn’t until I got my own camera at eight, that I became truly fascinated with photography and how I could make the ordinary look extraordinary.

Life's a blur of thousands of little moments that go by unnoticed, or at least unappreciated. I realized early on that photography gives us a chance to appreciate those small slices of life. To be able to view it at 1/4000 (or less) of a second is magic, really. And after 30 years, I’m still captivated every time I look through the loupe or at my LCD. I try to convey that feeling of discovery and amazement to the viewer through my photographs. I think it shows. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Let me show you.

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, we ask that you first email us to let us know you will be returning the item so we can be on the lookout for it and process your refund as soon as we receive it, so you're not waiting around.

Then simply return it to us within 5 days of receipt and we will refund the purchase price, less the shipping charges. Item must be *undamaged and in original condition* and resellable or no refund can be given.

In the event of a return, we do require that you ship the artwork in its original packaging to ensure that it is not damaged en route.

We also do require that all returns be shipped with insurance and with a signature required. If the print is damaged on return to us, but does not have insurance, we cannot be held responsible, and unfortunately will not be able to refund your money. Having a signature required means that USPS can't simply leave it out for anyone to take. It must be signed by someone and is proof the item was delivered. Both are typically about $2.00 each, but they are really good peace of mind.
