Nantucket summer

 

24th June 2013

Today is Midsummer’s Day (not to be confused with the summer solstice on 21st but they are linked in that 24th June was the solstice in the old Roman calendar as far as I’m aware). In honour of that I’ve uploaded some wonderful, summery pictures that I took on a holiday to Nantucket a few years back.

I spent a week in Nantucket and was bowled over by its charm. Every shingle covered home seemed to be covered in cascades of pale pink climbing roses – you could literally point your camera in any direction and get shot after amazing shot. Even with my very basic (film – don’t laugh!) camera, I got these shots which I recently dug out and scanned. The style of the East coast of America is one of my favourites and if these photos don’t convince you, well…!
