ferry to block island



























the hubby & I, our son ian and doggy priscilla drove to rhode island and took the car on the ferry from point judith to block island. as we tried to maintain our balance on this rocking boat, ian captured the shot below. I love how he caught the flag flying in the wind. thanks ian!

I like how you framed the top photo and the blur (intentional or not!) of the flag in the second!

You took it at an angle you can't tell that it is a boat.

The photos of Ferry and Flag are both great shots. Ferry's are fun I have been on a few and always enjoyed it.

I like the blurry flag-- it makes it look like the boat is going really fast!

Block Island... what's there? Were you just on a day trip? Stay over? Shops? Artists?

Cheryl said...

I was wondering who caught the first shot. That sunset reflection is amazing. Ian rocked that flag shot. Both wonderful examples of F.

Pietro said...

Really enjoyable pictures, Lily! They well describe your trip on the ferry boat.

Alexa said...

Two good ones for F! How convenient that you just took a ferry with a flag. :~} Love the way Ian captured the flag in motion.
