Quick Connecticut Visit

This past weekend, I made a quick surprise visit to Connecticut. Most of these photographs are made in Watch Hill, RI, where I experienced being on a northern beach for the first time in my life. It was quite the experience. Every time I visit up there, I find another new beautiful thing. I am so thankful for my boyfriend, not just for being him, but because of him, he has given me a connection to many amazing and inspiring people. These are my favorite photographs made:


This was made during the flight from Detroit, MI, to Providence, RI. I was in love with the sky for the hours I was up with it.


Driving through road construction traffic in Mystic, CT, I found this Siamese cat soaking up the sun in a window sill, and I captured a photo of it. I wanted to photograph it again, and by the time I turned around, it had already left.


I am unsure where this cemetery is, but I can tell you it is somewhere in Connecticut near Mystic. I really liked the mausoleum, which was the initial reason I entered the cemetery.


A close up of the mausoleum.


Lacy's feet in the sand of Nappatree Beach in Watch Hill, RI.


This is a photograph of beautiful Frances Mileski (we call her Fran). She's a great photographer and has such a similar style to mine.


The large and expensive houses on the shore of Nappatree Beach.


This is the Watch Hill lighthouse. I was very happy to get close to it and make a photograph.


This is Fran making a photo of me making a photo of her.


I believe I'd like to stay at the Ocean House. It is absolutely gorgeous, and I would have posted the full view of it, but it was currently under construction, and I wanted to give this beautiful place justice in my blog!


This photograph was made with my point and shoot camera (my dslr was in my bag that I couldn't quickly get out on the plane). It was right before the sun said good night and the whole sky looked like it had a blanket of light blue fleece.


No matter where you go, find the places and people who inspire you and keep them close.

Always,

Des'ola

  1. These are gorgeous. I wish I could have come up there with you to see these sights. I am glad you enjoyed yourself and got to spend some time with Kevin (even if it was for short periods of time). I am glad you are happy. I am also glad you had inspiration to take photos. I love seeing your photos, they always make me smile.

    I also just went and checked out Frances' site, and I must say she has some nice stuff on there. :)
