Vineyard Summer through my lens
When I go on vacation I always take the same kinds of photos. The ocean, boats, doorways, pretty houses. It gets kind of boring.
While we were on the Vineyard, my sister was looking for photos of what she calls doers. She wanted to photograph people doing things. These photos would serve as references for her live event painting business.
I thought this was a great idea. I almost never have people in my photographs and it might prove to interesting. So here are my photos of doers.
This child was just too cute. He was trying to fly a kite and I loved the joyful look on his face.
And this is the rest of the family. That's quite the camera that budding photographer has.
I took this shot of a woman and her dog in Oak Bluffs. This was one of a series of shots.
I thought the splash of pink made this photo more interesting.
Is he a doer? I don't know but he sure was cute.
This girl was very good at her job at a cupcake shop in Vineyard Haven.
Don't worry, these people were not crushed by that oncoming ship in the left of the photo.
Diners at the Black Dog Tavern.
We spied this grandfather and son from the window at the Black Dog Tavern. The child had amazing hair and they were having such fun I just had to take some photos.
The man was teaching the child how to skip stones on the water. It was fun to watch the interaction between the two.
I was searching for some sunset shots and took notice of these girls walking on the rocks.
One of them had cool sandals!
The girls were having a great time. Why not they were by the ocean on the Vineyard!
When I spied these dogs I just had to take the shot. The driver saw me and actually pulled out of traffic so I could take another one! Too funny!
I think this year's vacation shots are definitely more interesting than last year's. And I can thank my Sister for that. What a novel idea, having people in my photos!
