Sometimes it’s not obvious where you will take the best photographs

We spent Friday afternoon at the house of a friend who lives on the Connecticut shoreline. A short walk through the woods took us out to a beautiful sandy beach–it was great after a week of office deadlines to just be there in the warm sun and enjoy the view of Long Island in the distance. It was sunny (a miracle, in this rainy spring!) and the ┬áSound was full of sailboats and freighters and ferry boats. After enjoying the view and the salt air for a while, we headed back up the wooded path toward the house. Although I had taken a few pictures at the beach, it was actually in the woods that I suddenly started to photograph intensely. Perhaps I was too busy looking at the beach, but in the woods, I was seeing. There is a difference. It’s important to do both. (Many thanks to Mary for the great afternoon!)
