to the beach

July 20, 2009













hello! i’ve just returned from a great week in cape cod with my family. i’ve got lots to share (and lots to catch up on). this evening, i thought i’d post some digital photos. i shot mostly film last week, so i’m hoping to have some good stuff in a couple of days after my film is developed. stay tuned! it’s good to see you again.

    making me homesick just a bit, and helping me remember those brief years I was a New Englander!

    So THAT’s Cape Cod. I’ve never visited, but have been curious for some time now.

    The blue photo with the sailboat is particularly special.

    About 2.5 years late to the party, but for one glorious summer between the end of college and entry into “life” I was one of the caretakers for those white cottages with the green trim, in fact I almost left my pinky finger in one of those cottages by accident. Me and the other caretaker were given room in the last cottage towards Provincetown at the end of the row across the street from the bay. They were one room affairs with a little kitchen and tiny bathroom and we didn’t have a TV or a phone. Any calls I made had to be placed from a pay phone about 50 yards down the road. The two best memories I have from that place are of sitting outside watching thunderstorms roll across Cape Cod Bay until they were finally on top of us and we had to go inside and sitting outside on hot nights drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and listening the Red Sox on the radio. It was about as close to heaven as I think exists on earth.
