Day at the beach

 

 

One of the things I love about living in Connecticut (in the summer at least) is the number of beaches we have. Now, some may argue about the cleanliness of these beaches, but that's not going to keep me away. One of my favorite beaches in Connecticut is Rocky Neck State Park in East Lyme. It was closed, so Ludwig and I headed to Harvey's Beach in Old Saybrook. It's a small beach with a thin sandbank. It was packed because it was the 4th of July weekend, but a quaint spot nonetheless. There's nothing better than lounging on the beach listening to Toro y Moi and drinking mango wine spritzers. 

All photos were taken with my Canon AE-1 Camera with a 50mm lens. This camera comes with me everywhere I go, I named it Casseus. If you missed it in previous posts, it is a DSLR manufactured by Canon from the late 70s to the mid 80s, and it is an amazing piece of equipment still. I use Kodak Ultra 400 ISO film mostly. I am in love with the quality of photos that it produces. Also, thanks to a great imaging center - Ross Imaging Center in Hamden, CT. I highly recommend them. 

 Broken mirrors aren't bad luck to me --they're new beginnings. Plus they make for cool self portraits.

 Mysterious light leaks. Blame it on airport security. I take the blame for the broken mirrors, sorry love.
