When you’ve spent so much time working in mixed media and collage, there is something so refreshing about scenes jumping directly from real life into your camera.
It was a partly cloudy August day when we drove from Provincetown to Harwich Port. We were in no hurry and had no schedule – we decided we’d simply stop and explore whatever bits of Cape Cod seemed interesting as we meandered back from the outermost edge of the Atlantic. As it turns out, all the bits of Cape Cod are lovely and interesting, so we did quite a bit of stopping.
Once such place was Marconi Beach, where the view from the top of the dunes is breathtaking – both literally and figuratively, on a windy day. The water temperature on this day was 59 degrees, but there were still some hardy souls braving the waves. I loved how the colors of the sea melted into the sky: depending on the light, the horizon would, on occasion, very nearly disappear.
I could have photographed from this spot all day, but the rest of the Cape was calling our name, so we continued on…
We’re a morning beach family: there’s something lovely about arriving at the water’s edge in time to watch the seagulls breakfast and the morning sun sparkle on the waves.
Now that the boys are old enough to stay up later on summer evenings, however, we’ve also started heading back to the water after dinner, during those magical hours as the sun starts to slide toward the western horizon, tinting the blue water with soft pink highlights. We’re not there to swim or make sand castles at this time of night, but rather just to enjoy each other’s company and listen to the comforting sounds of the water as we watch the sun set.
Have you heard? A photograph possibly depicting Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan after their 1937 disappearance has surfaced. After the news broke, NBC10 stopped by the studio last night to learn a little more about Amelia’s earlier days as a student at the Ogontz School for Girls (now known as Penn State Abington) and the award-winning art piece I created in 2014 to honor her days as a young, adventurous dreamer who always had her eyes fixed firmly on the stars.
You can catch my blink-and-you’ll-miss-it portion of the segment right here.
