Ok, one final one to round out the maritime theme I’ve kinda had going on. As mentioned in my previous post about spending summers vacationing in NY/NH, we usually took a day trip over to the coast during vacation to Maine, or Boston, or somewhere along the Massachusetts coast. We went “sailing” out of Gloucester (super cool little harbor town with a large artist community) on one of these trips years ago. I suppose I’m thankful for modern times and that even sailboats have engines because there wasn’t even the slightest hint of wind. This picture is jokingly titled “Doldrums” because those 4 boats were just sitting still and the people just kinda hanging out. Still a great evening cruise though!
So as most of my followers may know, I have been off the grid for a long time posting old photos or re editing the old ones. For this past year my mind set has changed to an extent I never thought I would ever surpass. This year I decided to take a break from photography and chose to gather better friendships and make the best of my teenage years. In that being said I lost all my effort to wake up for sunrises, drive to a location to take a photo, or just get away from any anxiety driven situations to watch a sunset. Yesterday while I was in York Maine I happened to look outside to a huge and vibrant rainbow. I knew that this could possibly be my comeback. My adrenaline was rushing to the point where I look like a live action movie doing stunts across rocks. I had an idea to go to Nubble lighthouse in hopes of the rainbow being there. Once I got there and started taking photos I started to realize how amazing it is to take pictures and just enjoy the moments that we will never see again. Yes these rainbows are 100% real and the only edits I really did to this photo was to make it more clean and clear. I hope that this experience will help me get back to what I love. Only time can tell. I hope that me being off for so long that this photo will make up for it and everyone enjoys the photo and spreads love all across your Instagram feeds🏳️🌈🌈
After walking the old railroad tracks one morning, Emily and I spent the afternoon kayaking.
We tied our kayaks on Blueberry Island and cooled off in the water. Then, we picked a few wild blueberries and walked through the pines to the other side where we met families who swam from their boats to the island to use a rope swing that went over the rocks into 18 feet of clear water.
After watching the kids jump, Emily decided to follow. However, it took me at least a half hour of watching and finally coaching, cheering and a countdown from everyone to finally grab the rope and swing into the water. I am such a chicken but was proud of myself. We had no cameras to capture our kayaking adventure but will always remember that afternoon! @1inemillion85
