I am sort of rewinding the clock here and still catching up with the backlog of photos that I wanted to post.
These were taken on our recent trip to Cape Cod over the Christmas break. It was a relatively quick trip for us and I made a rash decision in the 11th hour to leave the big camera at home....
Stealing a line from one of my all time favorite movies... "Big mistake..BIG, HUGE"
and still kicking myself for not throwing the camera bag in the car because the day after we arrived, I was headed to the grocery store and decided to stop at the beach and take a little stroll.
The minute I stepped into the sand and heard the waves crashing, it was like instant serenity.
I walked down the coastline and found a few things that caught my eye along the way.
This staircase that was one of them. I named this photo "stairway to heaven" because from the bottom it looked like the stairs were going to take you right up to the sky!
Just beyond the stairs, there was a washed up and abandoned lobster trap that was so cool looking. The texture and details were so intriguing and thanks to the Olloclip on my iPhone, I was able to capture them up close.
I have been to the Cape so many times I have lost count....and special memories are made each time we visit, but this was certainly a walk to remember. I can't recall a time where I was able to walk the beach and essentially have it to myself with not another soul there..... just me, the sand, and the sound of the water. With each wave that came in and went out, I could feel the stress washing away. It was such a peaceful feeling and had a very calming effect. I only wish it wasn't so far away. Oh how I would love to be able to take a walk like that every day or at least once a week to clear my mind.
I know a lot of you follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook and have already seen this series, but I love them so much, I wanted to post them here so they are documented. All of the photos were taken with my Iphone and Olloclip attached, then processed using instagram filters. Looking at them up close here on the computer, they are a tad grainy, but I think it adds to the mood.
They day after I took these, it snowed. The storm was moving in.
It has been a week where I have put in a lot of windshield time, so I have not had the opportunity to take many photos.
I do have a few, just have not had time to get them downloaded from my camera.
Hope to get them up this weekend!
Happy Friday Friends!!!
