There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
— Ansel Adams
In an effort to be less drama-oriented around here (though, trust me, there’s still a bit of drama going on at the moment), I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite photographs that I’ve taken over the last several years. I hope you enjoy them!
This is the waterfall at Coline du Chateau in Nice, France. To reach it, you have to climb about a billion steps (or take a cab – we climbed), but it, and the whole park, are totally worth it.
This is a little cove off the coast of Villefranche sur Mer, just south of Nice. The kids were locals, and they were climbing the rock and then jumping off into the pool below.
I’ve posted this one before, in a Happy Things post, but it’s one of my favorites that I took in France. I read once that “love is what makes two people sit together in the middle of a bench when there is plenty of room at each end,” and this photo is the perfect illustration of that.
A sand dune at Jones Beach on Long Island. I took several rolls of film there too, in the weeks after I got my SLR.

Here’s an interesting juxtaposition for you – this was the Umbrella shack in April 2005:
And here’s the Snack Shack in April 2008:
And here’s my favorite photo from Jones Beach:
