New Eyes

I’ve lived here on Cape Cod my whole life.

Yet it wasn’t until I picked up the camera and started pointing it outward, in the direction of all that surrounds me.

Capturing images of things I’d seen a thousand times before.

That I began to see…

With new eyes.

And it’s changed my heart forever.

The Charming Gull

I’ve never understood those who say they don’t like seagulls.

seagull15-blogGulls are some of my favorite models.

Always ready to strike a pose.

seagull17-blogAlways up to something. As if they know some secret.

Maybe they learned something as baby gulls. Something they never forgot about having FUN.

Even if it’s just time to catch some dinner.

seagull12-blogSeagulls are always the first ones up in the morning, eager to get at it!

seagull16-blogAnd I happen to know they can do a pretty mean two-step, if given a little encouragement that is.

seagull10-blogAnd while it’s true they may not always see eye to eye…

seagull4-blogseagull3b-blogSeagulls always seem to find a way to patch things up in the end.

Blog-Seagull7I, personally…

Find seagulls to be rather reflective.

And to me, perfectly charming.

seagull19-blogThanks for visiting me here at Images of Cape Cod! And fly high!

The Sultries Come to Cape Cod

The sultries have arrived on Cape Cod.

ForestBeachLoop874-BlogIt happens every summer, yet the intensity of heavy moisture-laden air and the effect it all has on the light and the landscape is at once uncomfortable — and beautiful!

ForestBeachLoop873-BlogLast evening the sultry winds were in full force, the ocean was choppy and covered with a drippy haze. I’m not sure which was wetter, the air all around me or the sea out beyond!

ForestBeachLoop875-BlogThe osprey young ‘uns didn’t seem to mind.

ForestBeachLoop876-BlogAs long as they keep getting their fish while learning their lessons about the fine art of hover-dive-catch!

ForestBeachLoop880-BThings seem to slow down to a crawl once the sultries settle in. The marsh gets quieter, even the sounds of summer tourists seem muffled, more subdued. Who would want to move in this heat?

ForestBeachLoop877-BlogWell maybe the crows. They never EVER seem to get tired or overheated. These Three Amigos, a case in point.

ForestBeachLoop878-BlogMe? I am enjoying the photography yet thinking cool thoughts as I lean  toward the delicious days of September.

And in the meantime, trying to take Marmee’s advice of not moving anymore than I have to.

Marmee325Hope it’s cool wherever you are!  😉
