Island Life with Kitsch & Dog | Orcas Island Lifestyle Photography

The remainder of my days healing and resting on Orcas, I played with the rest of my lenses a day at a time. I didn’t push myself too much– no going into town or crouching for hours waiting for the perfect sunset shot (it mostly rained anyway). Instead, I puttered around the house and photographed the kitsch collected after decades of Island living, much of it antique and some of it belonging to the Moran Brothers, ancestors to Justin’s step-father and once-residents of Rosario. A few of the everyday objects in the Orcas house used to be a part of Rosario, like the Butler Bar door (below) and all the silverware (not pictured), which is stamped with “Rosario” on the back. I laugh because it makes me feel like I’m eating with stolen silver.

Justin was only up on the Island with me for a few days, before he went home to work a shift at the hospital. I stayed on, with Corwin for company. He enjoyed plenty of outdoor time when it wasn’t raining, and our daily trips to the sheltered ocean inlets, where he could swim if the water was calm. My little guy has developed quite the water affinity– if there is fetching involved.

Enjoy this snapshot of life in the San Juan Islands, and don’t forget to visit yesterday’s collection of Orcas Island macro and abstract nature photographs.
