An empty lifeguard chair stands watch over the Atlantic Ocean on Craigville Beach in Cape Cod. I thought this would be appropriate to share as our beaches here in NH have been seeing an influx of visitors this summer – and nearly all lifeguard chairs I’ve ever seen evoke the same essence of being at the beach.
The Marginal Way in Ogunquit must be one of the most beautiful pulaces on the eastern seaboard. The rocky coastline is marked by a beautiful walking path, with direct water access and a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean and plenty of massive coastal homes. I’d shot here before, although in a limited area…and I found myself shooting in a new spot this time around. Immediately I recognized a landmark, as I’d seen beautifully captured before by my good friend Chris Lazzery – who has made some great images during his visits here.
The landmark was this massive lifeguard chair perched on the rock. It’s very striking when captured well…I’ve got a couple more exposures of it that I like and plan to share soon. I will definitely be back for another attempt!
