The magazine you are reading is the 200th issue of Cape Cod LIFE since it first hit the streets in 1979. Our success over the years has been influenced by our wonderful photography and, in particular, our cover photos. Choosing the cover image is something I have always enjoyed. Traditionally, I have asked the editor and the art director to present some images for review. All employees in the office are invited to view the images. I keep my opinion to myself, all the while making mental notes of what I call the “ooozz and aahhzz meter.” We have found that this process helps please our readers, who are the ultimate judges of every cover. Do you remember some of these covers? Let us know your personal favorites! Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
