PHOTOS // mud



My friend Emily (who just yesterday started up a blog; she doesn't have any posts yet but you should follow her because she's an amazing photographer) just got the Nikon D3100, so we went out to get some pictures. (The watermarks will tell you who took which photo.) We wandered around in the woods for a while before we came across my little beach that I've ranted about a few times on here. Because of the full moon, the tide was super low, so we went plodding around in the mud trying to reach this beach:


But to do that we had to walk through this:
^^^ (entering this one in the portrait contest...) ^^^





But we finally reached our destination... after about an hour and a half...

There were lots of horseshoe crabs (dead ones):

... and pretty water...

... and seagulls...

Yup. I think we spent about two hours out there.

And were greeted rather unenthusastically by Willa when we returned home...

xoxo!

  6. Fantastic pictures! You and her are wonderful photographers. To be quite honest, I really missed your photography that wasn't fashion-related. You're so good at it {both of them, actually}.

    I need to go to the beach again. I swear, it's the best thing ever.

  17. ps. how do you upload your photos to blogger? Through blogger or flickr...or what? I use Photobucket but it's too much of a hassle.

  18. HaHa, I was scrolling through you post and my 7 year old sister was sitting by me and when it came to a picture of you, she was like "uhh... She's from ireland."
    Me: "She's from Maine."
    Meredith: "oh."
    it was so funny.

    Nice pictures by the way! I'm following your friend's blog.

  20. Olivia, *grins* only you can make muddy boots and dead crabs look gorgeous!

    Nice photo's! I haven't mucked around in mud in a long time but I do love to make dams, trails and little ponds when it rains and there's lots of 'river's. :D Keep up the good work, Olivia!

  22. @Megan: Haha! I'm Irish only by descent. Also British, a wee bit Russian... yep. Melting pot of Europe, that's me.

    @Danielle: I just go straight through blogger, but I resize them in Photoshop first so they load quicker.
