Photo of the Week

Photo of the Week: Week of October 2nd

When you have a camera, everything is photo worthy. Whether it’s the birds in the sky, or the flowers in your backyard. You get a new appreciation for the beautiful things in life and are constantly looking for a moment to capture those things. This was one of those moments. I was in Newburyport, MA and everything was vibrant. I was on cloud 9 from being at the Riverfest concert featuring the amazing band Kaleo. It was the perfect setting, a stage with the ocean in the background. As we were leaving, I spotted this colorful statue and I knew I had to take a photo. But what made it even cooler is the capability to focus on one area and fuzz out the rest, focusing in on the bright orange buoy. This picture symbolizes the essence of Newburyport, it’s location on the water and history on the sea, enticing people everywhere.
