I’m pretty sure it’s the latter… When traveling I used to always want something tangible to bring back with me to remind me of the trip like a souvenir, but lately my souvenirs have been my photographs. I feel inspired when I look back at the images and capture the moment.

I can look at a photograph and come back to it years later and still feel something powerful like I can physically imagine myself at that place hearing, smelling, seeing, even touching and tasting my surroundings. I try to take in everything around me because I never know if I’ll ever be at that place again, so I want to feel everything and never forget about it. These are some of my favorite photographs of windowsills and doorways (front lawns) from the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

I always wonder what people’s lives are truly like sometimes inside these doors and windows. I’ll always be that curious traveler wondering what life is like for others…

 

Lighthouse

My best friend, D, and I went on an East Coast trip. Originally, we wanted to do a road trip along the coast, but then we remembered that we drove 12 straight hours to D.C. a couple of years ago and as mature adults, we automatically vetoed road-tripping this beach inspired trip.

We started in New York and then made our way to Cape Cod with trips to Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and finishing off in Boston. I believe we took every mode of transportation as well, but it was definitely worth it with views like this lighthouse in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. Martha’s Vineyard was serene and very picturesque, don’t mind all the lighthouse photos – I was feeling inspired and the lighting and colors were great. (And maybe I was pretending that I was summering in Greece being seaside, but shhh…)

P.S. isn’t D getting so much better at taking my blog photos?!
