Driftwood and a Lighthouse

Walking the beaches of Block Island, RI.

Homa and I took a day trip to Block Island. It’s a beautiful blip off the coast of Rhode Island. I worked there one summer during college, returned regularly but I haven’t been for a good ten years or so.

It was a lovely end-of-October Sunday. Here’s some of what we saw.

Trees are Easy. The Woods are Hard

Giant caveats aside, capturing the spectacular of individual trees is much easier than capturing them in the woods. Let’s take a look.
