Well I did it yesterday. After Chris got up I went to the art fair. I got some beautiful photos of the area. I had forgotten how much being by the water meant to me. As soon as I heard the waves on the sand I teared up. So much good has come when I am by water.
I also met some fabulous artists. The craftsmanship on so many of those pieces was AMAZING! It’s like when someone cooks something. You can feel the love and happiness put into the food. It is the same with the art. There were some there that had just as beautiful things but they felt different. So I got a few pieces from the ones that I liked. I wanted more believe me! I got business cards from each stall that I went to (one I didn’t have the funds to purchase her silver rings but there were a few rings that I really wanted) so I could either get more or just promote their stuff. All were very nice and explained about their art as well as the process.
As I said I took a ton of photos while I was there. Not of the event but of the area it took place. There were huge gnarly, wizened trees along the short cliff above the shoreline. There was the changing colors of the water as the depth below changed. There were the flowers (a magnificent red day lily that I found and now want). There was the ever changing shoreline as the waves rolled in. All this calmed and centered me. It made me happy.
I will share as many as I can over the coming days (there are a LOT of photos… I ran out the battery on my Nikon and took a bunch on my phone). Let me know what you think. I am excited because I now have some thing new to add to my photography web site! Thanks for reading and have a fab day! Stay safe!
