When a sunset vista consists of water and sky only, then you know you are going to need a little something extra in the foreground of your photos to make a more interesting composition. I decided that people in silhouette would be a great option at Sunset Beach, so that’s what I was concentrating on when I struck up a conversation with a couple who were sitting on a bench enjoying the evening. Turns out they are also from Massachusetts and have been fixing up a nearby house, and they go out each night for the sunset. The husband asked if I had a phone. He said that he was watching me taking pictures and liked the way the light fell on me and thought it would make a good picture. So the feature photo is his photo of me, taken with my phone. I love these chance encounters. Am I too trusting? I was asking myself that as I handed him my new expensive phone and walked away. But these were very nice people, and this encounter was an extra added bonus to an already nice day.
