lunch on the vineyard

martha's vineyard


  1. The boat is almost bogger than the house!
    I love these coulors!

  2. Buongiorno! Sai che mi piace tanto? Una composizione deliziosa...due "case" , no?...dove c'è "storia"...ciao, Rob! Cy

  3. hello Isabel and Cinthia. on Friday I took a trip to Martha's Vineyard, and this is my favorite fishing village there. I don't know why the trash can, the door, and the bottom of the boat are the same color red, but I love these colors too. While I watched the scene, the seagull was very busy getting his lunch out of the trash. I think there are lots of stories here, and I am glad you have shared the idea of them with me. ciao, olá, Robert

  4. Hi Robert,
    a very beautiful and harmonious composition. It tells a fine own story of the sea, the work there ... the quiet rhythm of the people who live with it.

    with one word - wonderful picture :))

    a nice Sunday to you,


  5. thanks very much Isabella for your always thoughtful appreciation. "quiet" is a very good word for how it felt there. best regards, robert

  6. Consigues unos colores maravillosos, felicidades, gracias por tus visitas y por enlazarme, paso a hacer lo mismo con tu blog.
    Un abrazo

  7. In this photo i found the spirit of my work!
    A hug

  8. Hello Robert, I do love the brilliant colours and the boat near the house...quite typical in fishing villages, in Southern Italy, for instance. Ciao,Adele

  9. hello everyone, thanks very much for your visits, it is very nice to have you here.

    hello Trankilo, thank you for coming by, I enjoy the humor and the insight of your images.

    thank you Trevor, I could not resist the arrangement of reds !

    Antonio, I think we share the mystery and potential of boats on the shore. they are both encumbered... they can go nowhere....and pure potential....they look like they could fly anywhere.

    Adele, fishing villages have the most profound attractions. It is a very pleasant mystery.

    all the best,
