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”.
