Story Behind The Photograph

Taken in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

The photograph I chose for most of my profile contributions actually was taken in Providenciales, located in the Turks and Caicos Islands when my wife and I were on our honeymoon. It’s not a photograph on Cape Cod, but an ocean photograph nonetheless. My wife took it when we stopped at Turtle Cove to get one last look at the ocean and the beach.

While we were sitting on the beach, we noticed a lady who had a small terrier that looked very similar to ours, so my wife decided to take a photograph (of the dog), with the ocean as a backdrop. Very coincidentally, the lady arose from her seat to walk the beach and the ocean breeze simultaneously began to push the beach chair over, obviously startling the dog. We ended up getting a very nice (in my opinion) snapshot of dog backing away from the chair, as usually motion photography (unless your planning on it) creates the blurring effect when settings are not prepared in advance.

So that is the story of the photograph – it’s not very exciting perhaps, but it captures three elements of our lives that we enjoy: the ocean, jack russell terriers and our honeymoon.

Note: in case you were wondering, the dog was unharmed in the beach chair incident. Jack Russell Terriers are very adept at getting out of harm’s way, even when they obstinately put themselves in that position in the first place!
