Good morning from Paradise Island! This is the start of our third full day in the Bahamas and we’ve been kind of vacationing/kind of working thus far. Thursday we saw a movie marathon – we were at the theater from 11am until 7:30pm and saw four feature films and four shorts. CRAZY! My butt’s been hurting ever since. Yesterday I let Adam go to the theater without me and I did some exploring around the Atlantis resort, some reading (currently reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides) and a little swimming. Swimming DOES feel good when you’re pregnant! Although I do feel a little funny in a swimsuit with my big belly! I stayed outside by the pool until the sun started to fade and then I ran back to the room and got my camera for a quick photo walk. Here are some of my favorite photos from yesterday afternoon/evening:
These two photos have such a different feel – taken only about fifteen minutes apart.
A face only a fish mother could love.
I like how the reflection of the hotel in the water gave this photo more life.
I totally played with the colors on this one… I like the deep red blossoms in the trees against the aqua sky. Also kind of moody.
Meanwhile, it’s now 10:30am and of course – I’m STARVING (one of the side-effects of pregnancy – I wake up completely famished). It looks nice and sunny this morning and we don’t have any movies to see until early this evening. So we have to go get our fun and sun on!
I’ll leave you with this… Adam found this awesome site featuring Stanley Kubrick’s photography of New York. I never knew Stanley Kubrick worked as a stills photographer. I really love a lot of his work. Here are a couple of my favorites found on VandM.com (Vintage and Modern):
Enjoy and happy weekend to you all!
So glad that you and Adam are having a great time…and that there is some ‘vacation time’ too!
Really enjoyed reading Middlesex last year for one of my classes! Its really interesting once you understand what was going on.
It sounds like a great time. Would love to see a cute pregnant picture of YOU in your bathing suit! You might not feel like it now, but you’ll treasure it later. Have fun!!!
The pics are very nice Nell. U inspire me to take more pics… I love the pic of the moon in the sky..
Thanks Latoya! it’s great to hear from you. 🙂 keep taking pics!
I forgot to tell you how much I loved the photos:))
My favorites are ‘Blissed Out’ Atlantis Sunset and ‘ Grumpy Fish’.
