I’d been on a mission to capture a sunset at Watch Hill, Rhode Island. This particular evening, I don’t think I traveled any less than 85MPH from Seekonk to Westerly to make it on-time. You see, my original plan was to arrive roughly two-hours prior to sunset, find the famed Watch Hill Lighthouse, and set-up shop there. Problem is, I decided to take a nap before embarking on said journey. Needless to say, things didn’t go as hoped. Alas, I pulled-up to the docks just as you enter town at just the perfect time.
I couldn’t help but notice this abandoned home en-route to Colt State Park (Bristol, RI) a few nights ago. All I remember, in passing, is wondering how a home like this—so disheveled and obviously forgotten—could be nestled in an otherwise ritzy neighborhood. In my mind, I imagine some sort of grizzly murder may have taken place here, or perhaps therein resides a host of unsettled spirits. In either event, this structure was all but begging to be captured. The overcast skies, which have been an Achilles’ heel of late, even lent a helping hand in creating ideal lighting. I even took the realtor’s number from the “For Sale” sign, just in case!
