Happy Hump Day my friends! I’m a little behind on the print of the week this week, but that’s okay. It just means that this deal will go a bit longer, and there will be two prints on special at the same time next week! I also decided to update the discount from 15% to 25% off! And yes, it’s still built in to the price, so no code is needed!
The backstory on this weeks’s print: As many of you know, and probably have realized by looking at the various photos on here and in my Etsy shop, I grew up in a coastal town. My love for the ocean runs in my blood. I like to joke that I’m a third-generation townie, but in reality, it’s not entirely a lie. My father’s side of the family was born and raised here for generations.
When I began to fall in love with photography back in high school, one of my favorite places to venture to take photos was Plum Island. At that time, I was using an old digital camera (like one of the first on the market — old) and could only get there if we went on a photo class field trip, or a friend drove me. Some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken are the ones I took on that trip. It was my first time playing with composition and the light, and I knew immediately that I had found my passion. This was my sophomore year of high school. And at that time, I even considered going to art school for photography.
My love for photography carried on, as did my love for photographing Plum Island – specifically the boardwalks. There is something mesmerizing about a boardwalk or any walkway for that matter, that stretches on for as far as the eye can see. Or at least one that gives you that illusion. This particular boardwalk is in the very first parking lots on the Refuge of Plum Island. While you can’t tell by the photo, it was a frigid day. It was right after New Year’s, and the wind chill was below zero. Despite the cold, I walked out to the boardwalk and out to the beach. And on my way back to the car, I snapped some shots of the boardwalk. Luckily for me, no one else was around, providing me the chance to capture the boardwalk in it’s abandoned (for the moment) glory.
This is, and always will be, one of my favorite places to photograph.
