Pearls on Rye

July 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

Pearls are great to photograph. They seem to suck up light and simultaneously give it back. They calm everything down that’s around them and at the same time, they seem to make everything around them more exciting. (Hmmmm . . . I guess that’s why people wear them!) I’ve been photographing Margaret’s real pearls that she inherited from her mother, which is great if I’m working around the house where they won’t get lost or damaged. But I also wanted to take pearls with me to photograph “in the wild.” So we bought some cheap ones at Savers, and I’ve been taking them to the beach, on kayak trips, or just when we’re out for a walk. Here are a couple of pictures (top, mine; bottom, Margaret’s) from the first day of our vacation. We stopped for lunch at Odiorne State Park in Rye, New Hampshire. It was a great day for pearls–overcast, with soft light.
