Monochrome Monday: Oak Island Farwell

As the fall air turns cooler here in the Southeastern US, I’m posting this last batch of monochrome compositions from my visit last summer to Oak Island, North Carolina.

Oak Island, Pt 2.

This post features my second set of compositions from Oak Island, North Carolina. Once or twice a day, I would leave the family for a “photography expedition”. Time by yourself, with no pressure to “hurry up and take that picture”.

This is when I find photography most fulfilling, the freedom to wander, explore, and just see what you can see. For example, on a rainy day whim, I turned left on a dirt road near Safe Harbor and eventually found this rustic old lifeboat overlooking the Lockwoods Folly River, just before it connects with the Intracostal Waterway.

Of course, sometimes seeing is anticipation of a situation or scene that has potential to develop into something visually interesting.

You would think during the pandemic I would have more time to work on my photography. Well, it hasn’t worked out that way. Seems like I’ve been working more and more in my day job over the last year.

Last month, my family finally did take a long weekend with relatives on Oak Island, North Carolina.  We got some well-deserved rest and I was able to explore the barrier island. This weekend, I finally got around to finishing the first batch of images.
