This past July my parents took me on a 7-day cruise to Bermuda to witness them renewing their wedding vows after 35 years. For so many reasons, it really was a wonderful trip. The open Atlantic and the treasure Island that is Bermuda were huge sources of inspiration, and the experiences on land as well as the thinking that came from staring out at an endless ocean will no doubt come out in my creative works.
The trip was also a huge source for photos, and I took close to 500 of them – though my father marveled how I could shoot so many and not make a person the subject of at least one. What can I say? I like landscapes and macros these days.
But 500 photos would be too much to dump here, so I’ll start with a few I took from the cruise ship looking out across the Atlantic. It was such a strange new experience to be surrounded by water with no land in sight. The navy blue ocean on the high seas is angelic.
So here are a few ocean photos, seen from a cruise ship.
