Our granddaughter's First Encounter (!) with Cape Cod Bay

Post by Matt Quinn »

From the time he was about 3, our younger son played in the waters of Cape Cod during our two week summer vacation. His memories are rich, strong and fond. He couldn't wait to share that experience with his 3-year old daughter. Comments welcome. Matt

That is an excellent series illustrating exactly what you told us in words: the legacy of the father's time on the shore being shared with the adorable little girl, her unbounded glee from both directions. I hope you're framing these. Very well done. That second one is a fantastic candid portrait. These would also do well in monochrome, but I can see why you chose to present them in color.

Very sweet! #2 is so adorable with her single eye peeking from under the floppy hat.

Thank you, Linda. She turned 8 two days ago and growing too fast. And she is 2/3 of a continent away so we see her only 3 or 4 times a year. Our loss. Matt

Thank you, Minnie. The third photo is really the second in the time sequence but I somehow couldn't get it to go there. The second was later in the morning after she had been in the water for a while and was getting chilly, thus the reason for the fleece jacket. I shot these in color and have printed them in both color and b&w. Matt

Wonderful, wonderful, evocative pictures, and now she is 8?! Well, any parent knows how fast it goes. We all say it, and we mean it. The floppy hat portrait is just magnificent! :yay:
