“And so taking the long way home through the market I slow my pace down. It doesn’t come naturally. My legs are programmed to trot briskly and my arms to pump up and down like pistons, but I force myself to stroll past the stalls and pavement cafes. To enjoy just being somewhere, rather than rushing from somewhere, to somewhere. Inhaling deep lungfuls of air, instead of my usual shallow breaths. I take a moment to just stop and look around me. And smile to myself.
For the first time in a long time, I can, quite literally, smell the coffee.”

~ Alexandra Potter

  1. There is something to the saying that “great minds think alike.” Last week I was in Provincetown and took a shot of your pointed house with the gate opened and the same of antiques in the window, only with a similar, but different painting in the window. It’s so charming down there and your photographs are always inspiring!

  2. I’ve never been, but oh how I’d love to visit here. And you’ve captured all my favorite places – bookstore, antique shop, lights through the windows.

  3. I miss that seaside scenery so much (it doesn’t look nearly as pretty on the West Coast). Thanks for making me see it one more time.

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve had the briefest exposure to weathered seaside hamlets jam packed with charm and these photos brought it all back.

    We travel for ministry in Ghana West Africa and I wish I had your photography skills to help me tell the amazing stories I encounter there.

  5. Your photographs of Provincetown are very warm and inviting, I feel as though I can step into the beautiful world you’ve captured and make myself right at home. Lovely!
