I got a chance to visit a diary farm here on the island. I was expecting just a small barn and a few cows. But this was a big modern operation. When it was milking time the whole herd knew it and started heading to the barn on cue, with help from a herding dog named Rip. One at a time, like children in lunch line at school, they waiting their turn to be attached to milking hoses. All very orderly and fun. Rebecca the herd manager was gracious and allowed me access to all the going ons.
Rolling up island I noticed the afternoon sun casting shadows on the white exterior of the church. I thought it might make a nice black and white image. Plus they sell homemade lobster rolls here every tuesday!
A day after hurricane Irene you would have no idea a major storm just rumbled through. The sun was out and the sky was blue. Down in Aquinnah the waves rolled onto the shore, making almost a musical sound as they filtered through all the beach stones piles up from the departed hurricane.
I love going out in my car with a cup of coffee, having no idea when my next image may reveal itself to me. I am always amazed when it does!
I went out during the storm to try and photograph something special. But truthfully I had trouble finding any dynamic images. One silly thing I did was carry my camera and lens around in blowing sand, soaking salt water and rain. I have to remember, not to let my fever to go out there, threaten my equipment.
Once again the agricultural fair made its yearly way to West Tisbury. I was able to visit the last day to capture a few images.
I dared to go up island hoping to find some space to work and get away from the crowds. It was a nice drive and I was lucky to find some color in the afternoon sky.
A friend of mine let me do a photo shoot. It went very well and I liked the results. In between photos you should have seen all the bugs biting!! Thanks Jazmine~~
It was a night full of light and japanese lanterns at the Oak Bluffs camp grounds for the annual illumination night.
