After the inevitable stress that comes with finishing classes for the semester, it's so nice to be able to have a chance to relax a little. I find there's nothing quite so calming as going for long walks on the beach.

One of the most important things that photography has taught me is that beauty can be found if you look at things from a different perspective. I was out enjoying the sunshine this morning, when I realized that I wasn't really paying attention to the details: the interesting textures, patterns, and color variations that were right in front of me. The world can be overwhelmingly beautiful, when you take a closer look.

what // Shades of cobalt, sand, and feather grey
where // The Charles
why // Walking along the Charles is one of my favorite things to do when the weather is warm in Boston. I just love how the cobalt blue water contrasts with the feather grey walkway. Don't you want to dive right in?

I have long been a fan of color blocking [ as you can see here! ], so I was happy to see that these pretty tulips were perfectly color blocked in the public garden. I've finally finished my classes for the semester, and I was thrilled to be able to spend the afternoon wandering around the city. After being cooped up working on final projects the last week, it was so nice to get some fresh air.
[ And thank you so much for your sweet words of support; they meant so much to me! ]

Provincetown is one of my favorite spots on Cape Cod. A few weeks ago, I spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the town with my Mom. As I mentioned here, I always love visiting the Cape during the quiet winter months; everything feels so calm and still. While quite a few restaurants and shops were still closed for the season, there was still plenty to see.
It was an incredibly windy day, but the sun was shining brightly. The sunshine reflected on the windswept ocean waves has to be one of the prettiest sights I've seen.
Provincetown in renowned for its art galleries, and is even home to an artist colony. Many of the galleries were closed, but made for some interesting window shopping.
I think I will always be happiest near the ocean, and Provincetown is a consummate beach town.
As you may have realized, I have a minor obsession with signs. I especially love signs when they are advertising food. Or books. My Mom and I got fudge from the Provincetown Fudge Factory and it was seriously amazing.
The buildings in Provincetown are absolutely gorgeous, and feature the prettiest details. It's hard to be in a bad mood when surrounded by so many soft pastel colors.
The moments before the sun sets make up my favorite time of the day. I love the way everything is bathed in a soft golden glow, and made to feel a little more peaceful.
I hope you enjoyed Provincetown as much as I did!

Something about the return of spring always has me craving change. This summer, I'll be going on a road trip to Oklahoma [ about 1,700 miles! ] and then spending a month in the U.K. visiting family, and I couldn't be more excited. I believe a change of scenery can do wonders for the soul.
Do you love to travel? I'd love to hear!
[ And any road trip tips would be very much appreciated! ]
