These are just a few shots from the Cape, which I love to fiddle with, digitally altering them to make them appear 'vintage-y' -- like some old photos you'd find stashed away in albums that your grandparents (or great-grandparents) had at one time --
|Wynchmere Harbor, Harwich, MA|
the ones where no one can recall who took the picture or when --
|View of Provincetown Harbor|
That's something that bothers me about digital cameras -- it's so very ephemeral. At least in the 'old' days, people had their photos printed, as it was the only way. Now, how often do we actually print out the shots we've taken with our digital cameras and phones?
Sure, we load them up onto our computers and then onto our blogs, tumblr, pinterest, instagram -- but then what? What if the platforms and technologies change? Does anyone backup their pics?
|Garden Lion, Provincetown|
Ah, well . . . don't mind me. I'm just griping, as I know that I'm as guilty as the next person. I have good intentions, but they often go by the wayside with the excuse, "I'll wait for a rainy day . . . " And then I move onto something else: work, taking care of the gardens, etc.
This last image -- Garden Lion -- is a favorite. I found him poking up from behind a mass of shrubs and flowers in a garden in Provincetown. So very exotic, don't you think?
