At the end of March I got to spend a few fabulously rainy days on the Oregon coast. I am constantly amazed at how wonderful it is to live in a place with such beauty. It is humbling, even when it is down right drenching. We ate good food, ate some not so good food, drank lots of beer, slept (or didn’t) in the most uncomfortable bed ever, listened to the rain falling on the roof of the car, slept very well in a very comfortable bed, and laughed until our sides hurt. My goal for the vacation was to be truly present, which resulted in my not taking very many photographs and most of the ones that I did take were on film. So, now my goal for my next vacation is to work on my ability to be present in the moment and take photographs. These are a couple of the photographs I made with my dSLR while I’m waiting to get the film developed.
