Our trip to Massachusetts – Part 1: Rockport
I love going to Rockport when I visit Massachusetts. Rockport is a small town by a harbor. There are cute little shops, cobble stone paths, beautiful sights, freshly made ice creams and delicious lobster and New England clam chowders!
Of course I took photos of my family and other obvious sights during this trip, but I find it soooo interesting to shoot things that make most people scratch their head! I don’t know if this is a talent or a curse, but often, I can see something (artistically beautiful) when most people see nothing.
(FYI: I will post photos of people in a different blog!)
So much of what I’m drawn to are colors, shapes, patterns, textures, and of course light.
I also constantly challenge my “eye” by looking at simple everyday things in a different way.
This is a window to someone’s basement.
This is another view of the scene from the window reflection. This is what most people would take a photo of! Still beautiful indeed.
From talking with this smiley man with a strong Bah-ston (Boston) accent, I feel like he is also the fisherman who catches the day’s seafood! Can you say “The Perfect Storm”?
Their lobster dipped in melted butter is the best! And you eat it outside on their deck by the water — pure bliss!
Lawrence, my monkeys and I were seated on a bench while eating our guilty pleasures (mine was a chocolate eclair) when I saw this pair of love birds walk by.
From the length of their shadows and the soft sunlight, you can tell it is late in the day. I love the romantic mood of this photo.
I swear I hadn’t taken any prescription drugs or drunk too much of anything, including caffeinated beverages, but that day, I saw faces in so many inanimate objects!
Is it just me, or do you see it?
Below Left: I love the colors and also how the web-like branches cuts through the harsh straight lines of that house.
Below Right: C’mon do you see it?!!
I took this photo through the windshield of our car while we were driving on the highway. And Lawrence (aka, Speed Racer) was driving, so this photo could probably be a little sharper.
I love the imagery of the sunset with the lights from the cars. Together, they emit a feeling of “life”.
