A thousand words

When people ask me what living on Martha's Vineyard is like, I answer honestly and simply: like heaven.

I would not at all be surprised to die, and wake up back in Chilmark.  And rather than try and TELL you about it, rather than attempt to describe to you the oak scrub forests filled with birdsong, or the beautiful clay streaked cliffs, or the sunrise over the ocean is like...  Rather than tell you...  I thought I would just show you.

Here are some of my very favorites from my personal collection.  I have taken these photos over the course of the past three years, here on Martha's Vineyard.

A word of warning!: This is a BIIIIG block of photography - so if flowers, animals and beaches are boring to you, you should look away now!  Avert your eyes!

...But if you didn't like those things, you wouldn't be here in the first place, would you?  :)


  1. It sure is very beautiful place. How about tornadoes? Do they ever come to visit?
    BYW Title of your blog post instantly reminded me of Sting and his A thousand words.

    1. Thank you Kristina! I am but a humble servant - I only take the photos to share the beauty with the rest of the world. :)

      We do not ever get tornadoes that I know of, but because we are surrounded by water, hurricanes can be a threat. We have had some very bad tropical storms that blow through and take a lot of trees down with them.

      If a photo is worth a thousand words, then this blog entry must be a whole novel's worth :)
