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.

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.
