These photographs were taken this past weekend at Fripp Island, South Carolina. My husband and I finally found a weekend to unwind and take the opportunity to invite a few friends to the beach. It was a weekend without kids or responsibilities. And what a fantastic time it was (although I missed my kids of course)! The last time I went to Fripp, I found myself taking photographs of nearly everything I saw, and the result was an overwhelming amount of subject matter with little focus. Since I had already gotten that out of my system, I found myself this time taking more thoughtful shots (or what I believe to be more thoughtful shots). I wore these aviator sunglasses to the beach that produced amazing reflections of everything I was viewing. I struggled to capture images without the camera in them every single time, since I was pointing the camera at my own face and shooting. But I love how the camera pops in these every now and then, as if to let you know it is I who is taking the photograph and not someone else… a glimmer of a self-portrait. I received a lot of funny looks from onlookers who probably thought I was a tad egotistical and strange (taking photograph after photograph of my own face), but I managed to capture some great images of the time I was spending with my friends at that specific moment. I was not bothered by the stares because I knew they could not see what I could nor could they read my mind. Haha! Anyways, most of these are reflections via my aviators, but there are a couple of my friend Lindsey’s glasses and sunglasses. I tried to vary up the viewpoints and subject matter in order to make this set more interesting. I wanted the viewer to feel the serenity and the peacefulness and intensity of the summer sky upon the beach. For me, there is no greater feeling than relaxing on the beach and I wanted to isolate this moment from crowds on the beach and share it… although, the crowds were minimal since this is a private island and school has started back. I hope you enjoy these photographs and please feel free to leave any and all feedback!
