Frequently associated with corrosion, rust is typically not looking upon with an admiring eye. As one might imagine, items such as this string of lights and chain link fence are quite vulnerable outside these seaside houses. No longer strung across the yard, this strand appears to be on it’s way out but there’s something enchanting about it: rustic yet romantic. I imagine it strung across a restaurant patio in Italy where I sit sipping a glass of red wine and cannot resist trying to preserve it with my camera.


for mom

Growing up, I learned to associate the color yellow with my mom. We had a bright yellow car, and the roses she preferred were this same vivid color. She loves the color yellow. Therefore, this photo is for her.

I love you, Mom.

A little tug in my hamstring discouraged me from squeezing in a hike after my mommy shuttling duties were complete. With my trip a little more than a week away, I can’t afford to mess with injuries. In lieu of hiking, theMAN and me take drive over the hill for a seaside stroll (aka “photo walk”) and a little bonding time at Margaritaville.

We took our time walking along the ocean, stopping to take in the view and/or snap a photo of it. This is just one of the many photos I took along the way. I had fun composing the shot to include the wildflowers in the foreground. Since we are often photographing the same things, I have been looking for ways to make my photos a little different from the ones theMAN takes. It’s a fun exercise and helps to challenge me in my development as a photographer. Plus it’s cool to have photos that stand out and make this seaside stroll different from the last one.

I’m more of a dog person but this little guy was kind of cute.
