Alright friends, this is the last installment of the series "Lost Photographs of 2010", I promise (I think)! But thanks for letting me share. It was fun to go back through my pictures and reclaim lost gems. Here is the last category: nature.
And a few extras from a different category that I forgot to post earlier:
Last spring, I went with some friends to Harrison Bay State Park on a lovely, breezy, sunny afternoon. I was just enjoying the sunlight and red sand so much that I couldn't help but get shutter-happy! :) Since Kristin and I were already planning on doing a senior photo shoot, I decided to take lots of pictures of her to see if I could get any good ones. The pictures from her photo shoot a few weeks later turned out so well though that I never revisited the pictures from Harrison Bay. I found them the other day, did a little editing, and here they are! :)
Last January, I was home in Massachusetts recovering from my accident and surgery. My Dad came home from work and his collar was accidently popped up and the lighting was really stark. I thought he looked like he was modeling and the following is what ensued. My Dad is the best. He has an awesome sense of humor and was a great sport during my "photoshoot". We had fun :)
I took these pictures on a foggy friday night in March, 2010. The evening was incredibly moody - the mist hung in the air like a weighted blanket, and the street lamps struggled to cast their golden hues out into the encroaching darkness. I strolled along the promenade just reveling in the beauty of it all. For some reason, I never posted the pictures. Probably because the magic of the night just refused to be fully expressed on camera. But I tried, and it has taken until now to share. Forgive the blurriness - that's what 10 second exposures without a tripod will do.
