thedailypic•yr8•316/365•2873•Cape Boat

A common request I get is, “Do you have any photos from the Cape/Beach/Ocean?” Sadly, not many, I am not sure what happens when I go over the bridge, I take less photos. It is not a secret, if you are close to me, that I am not a fan of the Cape. Some are beach people, some are not… I am not. I do enjoy the occasional visit, in the same vain of I take a sip of coffee now and then… to remind me why I do not drink it. One day at the Cape is a reminder for me. With all that said I really do need to get some shots of the cape to add to the portfolio. It is pretty and the demand is high. Maybe some February I will take the time to head down and shoot it and enjoy a coffee.

On the South coast of Iceland (my favorite part) is the coolest beach I have ever seen. Basalt sea stacks situated under the mountain Reynisfjall line the outside of this cave. The beach is all black with smooth rocks and the caves are incredible. This photo and the others below are all blown up and look awesome. All ready for next Thursday’s show. I am on track to have at least 50 framed photos, a bunch more matted and about 100 unframed photos to be viewed.

I am working on refreshments, I will have the talent of Kelley McCauley playing music for us. Every person who buys a ticket will get a free matted print when they arrive. Tickets are on sale online (link below) and I will be at my studio 9-noon this Saturday for an open house where you can also stop by and pick up tickets – or drop me a message. In addition to the Iceland photos I hope to display my other work too, as space allows.

Tickets $10/$5 for under16 and seniors: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3033477

I truly do not know how long I have wanted to go to Iceland, I just have… for a long time. It was on the bucket list. I had seen a photo of the US Navy plane on the black sand beach, it got me looking into it more, from there I uncovered photos of waterfalls, sheep, horses, geysers, landscapes that looked out of this world, I knew I would go. Then over Christmas break 2013, we saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty as a family and Anna fell in love with the scenery – much of it was shot in Iceland, the locations we found on this trip. That sparked the interest again. Add in a few years back we tried to take a road trip as a family, we were to head west, take 2 weeks off and drive to Yellowstone. the plan fell part when Barbara’s employment situation took a detour. So a year ago this week we were in NH, a simple quiet lake house vacation, we had just gotten Josie and was a perfect week. This lovely couple owned the house we rented and they came to see us and asked us if we wanted to book it again for next year (would be this week)… and without really thinking about it, I said “No thank you, I think we are going to Iceland.” That was the first time the words really came out of my mouth, the first time the family heard me say it, and the plan began. Iceland in 2017.

And here we are on the last day about to leave, it has been a great trip. Better than great, I feel like this will stay with me in ways I have not thought of yet. It is hard to put into words. I hope more than anything that one day, 5, 10, 25 years from now my kids will look back at this adventure as a milestone. Hell, we all got tattoos. I saw my plane, my waterfalls, sheep, horses, geysers, out of this world scenery and so much more. What started as a once in a life time trip, quickly became a scouting trip for future locations to visit again. Maybe it will be with just Barbie, maybe it will be just me, or a group of friends, or the kids and their families, but it will never be like this trip. The trip we got our road trip, the four of us, 950 miles in 9 days.

As for the photos, I have barely shared any, I have so many more, I was prepared, I knew what I wanted and I got them. I love these photos, yet I left so many here, it is impossible to get them all. I am not sure how to share the ones I have. They will be displayed, I have already been asked – and the answer is yes, I will have some for sale. I would love to have a show for them. Maybe rent a place and put on a true photo show. We will see, and I promise you will get to see them too. I just need time to get the right set in order. For a person that takes and posts photos daily, having a set of photos that need to be worked on ‘later’ is tough. I am open to suggestions on how you would like to see them.

I wish each of you the chance to go somewhere, wherever it is, not matter how close or far, that can add to your story. That is always my goal, add before things are subtracted. That’s the best we can do. Thanks for looking, more soon.

thedailypic•yr8•269/365•2826•Sólheimasandur Landing

Today (Day 3) was a ‘cross something off the bucket list’ type of day for me. This abandoned plane has fascinated me for years, I have seen photos of it many times, just sitting on Sólheimasandur Beach in Southern Iceland. It crashed in 1973, it was a US Navy DC Plane that ran out of fuel, everyone walked away. The US Government stripped it, but the body was left behind and there it sits. It is beyond cool, the family took ATV rides today along the black sand shoreline and this was a stop. More photos from the ride later, but this was my highlight today. It has been sitting there since the year I was born and today we met, I even snuck the drone up for an aerial view.  And yes, if you look close, you might notice someone put a timricephoto sticker on the inside…

thedailypic•yr8•233/365•2790•Berner Beach Fest

OK, some photos out of order, it has been a crazy busy week… and with today’s Local Music Awards at Liz’s Diamond in Hopedale (tune in tomorrow for photos) I am posting photos from yesterday’s Bernese Mountain Dog meet up in Dennis. It was our first time at the yearly event on Mayflower Beach and Josie had a blast. Berners, and a few friends, everywhere, taking over the beach and water. It was a blast, met some great people and dogs, it is amazing how similar yet unique each Berner was. Might be time to consider adding another to the family now knowing how much fun Josie has playing with Berner friends. To see the whole set from the day click here.
