I took a road trip to New England a few years back. Me, myself, and I conquered the 14 hour drive with only one mishap…a flat tire. While walking the streets of Ogunquit Maine I saw these lovely flowers, and was compelled to capture them on film. (Old terminology…I know…but hey, I’m over 50 and set in my ways.) 🙂

New York City Skyline from Ellis Island
The above photo was taken from Ellis Island. I loved the way the lamp posts diminish into the background creating a sense of depth.
I took this photo when my son and I visited New York City. Josh is the one with a raincoat on, looking back and upward, in front of the lady with the umbrella. I tried to use the rule of framing, as Josh is framed by tall buildings on either side. For some reason this photo reminds of the opening scene of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, when she’s in the “big-city” and she spins around and tosses her hat in the air. Josh kind of has that same amazed look.
I tried to concentrate on the horizon line and the rule of thirds in the photo of a sunset at Myrtle Beach. I hoped to place the couple in a place within the photograph so they would draw your eye to them first and then traverse “counter-clockwise” up and over the distant pier and then into the clouds above.
I took this photo at Rye Beach New Hampshire when cheering a friend who was running in a marathon. My friend had already passed and I was walking back to my truck when this scene inspired me to capture it. I love the way the autumn leaves are scattered on the roads pavement and how the lines of the road and direction of the stone wall carries you through this photo. I also love the pumpkin sitting on the stone wall. This is one of my favorite pictures for a few reasons: 1. It’s a misty rainy day. 2. It’s during my favorite time of the year-Autumn. 3. I LOVE New England.
Such a wonderful day! Corinne-my wife, gets an unexpected kiss from Maggie. This was taken on a cold winter’s walk at Hampton Beach New Hampshire.
This is Dr Jones-Jonesie-sitting on the balcony watching our two dogs roughhousing in the snow. I like to think he’s taunting them because he’s safe and warm while they’re out in the cold. This photo makes me smile. I miss that boy, as he’s traversed the rainbow bridge. I believe he thought himself a dog. He would always follow us when we took the dogs out for a neighborhood walk.
Corinne surprised me with a whale-watch tour, out of Cape Anne, Massachusetts. I was able to capture this “whale’s-tail” with my cell phone. Such good memories!
Thank you, Cee, for your challenge. It was so fun remembering such good times.
