Okay so these are not dunes, it is a little path along the water. For some reason the song made me thing of “If You Like PiÃ±a Coladas…”.
This morning Dad and I took a walk from the house to the harbor and I, of course, took my camera with me. I was going to take my new camera bag with me to test it out but I am afraid it is just too big for me and it has hip stabilizers and I don’t need them at all. So I am trying to decide what I should do with this camera case. Should I try and sell it on eBay or should I run some sort of contest on this blog. Any thoughts?
Well, during our walk we went to the Falmouth Harbor and I looked for things to take a photo of. We talked about how I try and take photos of what I see that is there and how that is different from other photographers that I know who see what is not or what could be there and adds things to the scene. MY Dad picked up some shells on the sea wall and positioned them and took a couple of shots. That isn’t something I would have thought of doing. If they were arranged in an interesting pattern I would most likely shoot them. So it made me stop and think. I then ‘borrowed’ his idea and shot this image.
The entire walk I could see that we were headed to the harbor and how the sidewalk and the cliff and the water were leading us there. I kept trying to figure out a good shot that would avoid the power lines and other things. When I got down to a point where there were no power lines I took a few shots and I wasn’t too happy with them. So when I got to the Harbor I took this one of the seawall and the jetty leading out into the harbor. I wanted to convey the same sort of leading that I was seeing as we walked to the harbor.
After our walk we went out for breakfast, picked up some lawn seed/fertilizer/plant food and went back to the house.
Since I will be traveling this week. Three states (Illinois (Chicago), North Carolina (Raleigh) , Louisiana (Shreveport), three demos, three skin of my teeth connections to make, I went home early to spend time with Eva and Allison. The only place I will be there long enough to catch my breath would be Shreveport. So Sorry Robyn and Lisa, I can’t come out to visit this trip. We had a nice afternoon together and now I am finishing up because I think Allison is playing Mario Kart Wii and she sounds like she needs a challenger.
