The boys and I spent an afternoon at Tybee Island last week.
We typically head that way for beach fun, but it was too chilly for that, so we waved at the ocean from the bridge and explored elsewhere.
They hit the playground while I played with my camera, and then we all took a leisurely stroll on a nearby trail.
Looking at these images a week later, I’m struck by the eery ambiance.
I didn’t feel that in the moment, but viewing them now, some look straight out of a horror movie.
What do you guys think?
Swampy oasis at the beginning of trail.
Palm trees, oaks, and faded winter grass along the trail.
These explorers are adamant that ALL trees are for climbing — and they obviously aren’t THAT chilly. I, on the other hand, was quite comfortable in jeans and a warm coat.
Gil pointed out that I take blurry pictures. Hmm, exactly the reason I’m “playing” with my camera. So, if blurry pictures offend you, too, then you might have better luck on a more skilled photographer’s site. I take pictures to capture moments and am a novice at best… I actually like the way this picture turned out. The placement of these leafless, winter trees and the faded color (along with some blurriness) add some mystery.
And finally, the creepy, horror flick pic. I spotted this old house through the trees and had to get a closer look. I suspect it’s empty for the season and most likely is a lovely beach home during the height of tourist season. I got a few closer shots that showed the house better, but it was getting late and the lighting wasn’t great. This was my clearest shot. I love how eery it appears peeking out from behind the oaks and overgrown brush.
Sending love and light to all of you. Have a wonderful weekend!
