Willard beach in Portland was perfectly charming and adorable - a colorful playground, little sailboats bobbing about in the water, extra-fluffy dogs roaming around, cookie-cutter-esque beach houses in a row, lighthouse in the distance... it was MADE for pictures. It was a little challenging capturing it all with the fixed lens on the Contax. There were a number of times I wish I had a longer lens. And of course, we photographers hate harsh sunlight like this... I mean, I had to STOP DOWN to like f/8, as I was using 400 speed film. Blasphemous, isn't it?? Still, this little beach is a must-visit if you find yourself in the area.
Not that I can really complain about perfectly blue and clear skies, but a few wispy clouds here and there would have made for some much more interesting shots. Ah, well!
Let's let the weekend begin, shall we?
