Wickford Doors in Summer

July 21, 2015

There are many popular motifs throughout art and photography, one of them being architecture; and given my local landscape I decided last year to explore the doors of Historic Wickford Village.  Perhaps I had been taking these building for granted all these long years I've lived in Wickford, but taking the time to stroll down the quiet streets and photographing the compelling nature of the front doors brought my attention back to the seemingly mundane.  

I have visited the doors during a quiet winter snowfall and a breezy windswept autumn day.  But most recently I made the trip during a hot and steamy summer afternoon, and of course, sometime in the future, I will make the walk during the blossoming days of spring.  

This summer walk was particularly warm and sunny, and as I attempted to remain in the shady side streets I was captivated by the lush greenery that accompanied the doors and stoops of the historic homes.  While I always visited Main Street previously, I made it a point to visit more of the side streets this time and it provided me with more botanical life than paved Main Street ever could have!

Enjoy these shots from Wickford Doors in Summer and stay tuned for more!  The entire collection can be seen on my website under Wickford Scenics

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season.  Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.  We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F.  But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

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.
