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…

It just rolls off your tongue as you say it. So back to pineapples… Before D and I went to our East Coast trip we knew we wanted to rent bikes in Nantucket, so then we had an issue. What do you wear on a bike ride? Well, we couldn’t wear our beach dress cover ups, so I opted for a pineapple print romper. It was perfect for our leisure bike ride that ended up being twelve miles instead of the six we had intended. Let’s just say the island of Nantucket needs to better label their bike paths. Anyway, at the end of our ride we were able to take in the beautiful scenery and the wild waves (I should have brought my surfboard along).
