watch hill

September 4, 2009














hello! happy friday to you.
i hope you aren’t tired of seeing photos from the shore. i know that i’m not, and i’m also not ready to embrace autumn quite yet. so i thought i’d share pics from a roll of slide film (i think this was elite chrome 200?). this was my 2nd roll of slide film and i’m really pleased with the results.

the photos were all taken near watch hill, in rhode island. if you ever have a chance to visit, you should. if you were to go there, i would tell you about the secret little beach that we go to, and i’d insist that you go to st. clair annex for a lobster roll, chowder, and an orangeade (whatever you do, do not miss that orangeade). it’s one of my all-time favorite summer spots.

i hope you have something fun planned for the long weekend. i’m going to a country fair (where i plan to eat an insane amount of apple fritters) and a clambake. i can’t wait. see you next week!

    They’re beautiful, Brian. I love what hurricanes do to the waves when they sneak past New England.

    Your weekend sounds spectacular. And thank you for making me hungry and craving clam chowder at 1am.

    Swoon! I never tire of seashore images and these are amazing. And the 4th down window shot is simply spectacular.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    I love your photos. I lived in Rhode Island during my senior year of high school, it was an awesome experience, I miss clam chowder…

  14. September 4, 2009 2:23 pm

    So lovely! I miss the beach up there (though we are a cape cod bunch), especially since I did not get to go this summer. Thanks for these lovely photos that remind me of chilly mornings, damp sea air rooms, and weathered shingles.
    (Also, I found you by simply breakfasts, and your breakfast looked so good that I decided to visit…I’m glad I did!)

    Absolutely lovely, Brian. This was cool water for the heart. Thank you.

    thanks for the winsome photos. now, chowder….this might be it’s own art form. we’re having our first grey, wet days in the pacific northwest. it is a love/sad relationship…..will miss the heat and sun that burns the tops of my feet, that make for really lush basil plants……love that sound of wind in the big doug firs, my old barn coat, those first crisp apples.

    More reminders that summer is ending…

  22. September 5, 2009 2:58 pm

    You remind me that life is beautiful, even when the sun rests behind the clouds. Thanks for sharing Brian. Great pics!

    More like – can’t get enough of pictures of the shore. They are beautiful.

    These are absolutely gorgeous. The one of the castle-like hotel made me catch my breath. But I think my favorite is the one of the food– there’s something about the position of that ketchup bottle.

  25. September 6, 2009 2:51 pm

    I know for sure that I am not tired yet of your shots from the shore. MORE please….. It’s absolutely stunning.

    And it’s nice to see the beach shots not only from the summer season !!!

    I came across your site for the first time today, and I just wanted to say how truly lovely your photographs are. You’re a wonderful photographer and I really enjoyed reading your blog. Best of luck,

  27. September 7, 2009 5:26 pm

    Thanks for sharing. I’m in Boston and will make my way over next summer.

  28. September 7, 2009 10:47 pm

    These make me dream of a vacation at the beach up north. Breathtaking.

    …we keep our little sail boat in Watch Hill so I am very familiar with it but loved seeing it from fresh eyes…and I love your eye for photos…they keep inspiring me…

    …Have always bought our lobster rolls across the street at Bay St Deli and then go across the street to St Clairs for the Gingerfruit ice cream…will have to try St Clair’s lobster rolls next time…
