One of the main reasons I love film photography (vs. digital) is because of the slight element of wistfulness it gives the viewer. There is an ever-so-subtle fade in a film photo...like you are looking at a picture from your memory you know holds so much to it. You can remember the sights and the sounds and the smells. You can feel it, almost.
There is a small island off the coast of Massachusetts called Nantucket. Founded as a whaling community in the 1700s, it has become a prime summer destination for many today. I am head over heels in love with Nantucket - I feel giddy when the plane or ferry starts nearing the island, I swoon over the soft sand and the blue, blue sea, and I blush at the quaintness of the town with its charming shops, delightful restaurants, and dancing bars.
So, here's my love letter to Nantucket, in pictures.
With all my love,
