Recently, The Boston Globe interviewed me for their “My Instagram” column, where they feature regional folks & their Instagram accounts. You can see the full interview here or check out an excerpt below.
Q. Why do you think people like your images of homes?
A. Pictures of these homes takes you out of your day-to-day life and brings you to a different time. I am a huge history nerd and I love to see these homes with plaques on them that say the house was built in the 1700s [or] 1800s. I imagine what that street looked like at that time and I think it helps people take a look at what their neighborhood or town used to look like and how it has grown. When you get a house that has lasted for 300 years, you think of the work that went into sustaining it, and the high quality work it took to make it last that long.
Of course, once seeing the interview in print form, I ventured out with Jeff to see where we could snap a shot of my *ink* to post on my Instagram account. We stumbled upon a spot we hadn’t been to yet in Scituate. We soon realized that it was too beautiful to take with a newspaper taking up half the shot.
Where were we, you ask? Well… there’s a spot called “The Spit” in Scituate where Jeff & I thought you could only access by boat. The beach is typically filled during the summer and pretty well known by locals. Turns out, you can access the beach by foot, but only during low tide, when the path below is above water. Stay out there too long? Well, you might find yourself having to swim back!
