Nova Scotia met us with a wonderful afternoon at the beach and then rafting the tidal bore in the Shubenacadie River. We rented an adorable cottage in the small town of Maitland, NS. We set out at 6:30 in the morning to wait for the tide to roll in. As the tide quickly moves in over the sand bars standing waves are created. When we rafted the waves were standing 9ft tall. We took out rafts with 42hp propellers and drove into the waves head on. We would then chase the standing waves down the river as they were created over more and more sand bars. It was one of the most fun things I've ever done. I've never heard my dad laugh so hard in my life. Rafting the tidal bore in the Bay of Fundy is an absolute must for your traveling adventures. Being my 5th rafting trip - it was the most fun. Here are some pictures from Maitland and the beach!
I photographed Nina at the same time as my previous post, Kara. She is a foreign exchange student living in Rhode Island from Germany. When I first met her I knew I had to photograph her. When you see the shade of blue her eyes are, you will understand. I was so impressed with how mature, calm and collected she is. Nina returns to her home in Germany soon but I know the impact she has made on her friends here is one not to be forgotten. On a side note, I read this quote in an old issue of Real Simple magazine the other day and water to share:
"There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the Earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos." Katherine Anne Porter - Paris Review 1963
I recently photographed this bright young girl on Second Beach in Middletown, Rhode Island. She was a fantastic model and I was itching to do some personal work after the start of wedding season. Her wisdom exceeds her age and her beauty radiates through her eyes and smile. Kara is wearing Free People and make-up by Urban Decay.
