Second Day in Mystic

September 13, 2012

Day two in Mystic was just as enjoyable as day one!  My boyfriend and I spent a good part of the day walking around the seaport and checking out what the museum had to offer, including the figureheads gallery, the Charles Morgan Restoration project, the junior sailing program, the old fishing vessels, not to mention the awesome Rosenfeld Collection.  One of the premier nautical photographers, Rosenfeld photographed boats and nautical activity back at the turn of the 20th century.  The images are fantastic darkroom prints.  That's right, he shot it on film, and large format too!  It was absolutely awe-inspiring work.

After going for a windsurf and swim (my third windsurfing lesson!), I took my camera around the seaport at dusk to get some great images in the golden evening light.  And I went back out again after dinner for some nighttime photography.  It was great to capture the stars and constellations next to such historic vessels!  

I think some of my favorite photos came from Mystic, and I'd be happy to visit there again someday!

Day two in Mystic was drawing to a close and we were setting our sights back towards Rhode Island.  It would be a two day stop in Block Island before heading home, and I was looking forward to this great RI vacation spot which I definitely haven't visited enough!

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
