Textures of the Dominican
Sunday, April 27, 2008 | travel           

As promised I finally have some images ready from our trip to the Dominican Republic.  I have an obvious love for Palm Trees so the post is a little palm heavy but more than palm trees I have a love for boats.  Since High School I've had many opportunities to travel overseas and even before becoming a photographer I always set out to photograph boats from all over the world.  My number one goal has always been to find fishing boats in every country but didn't mind settling for any type of boat if I couldn't find a fishing boat - unfortunately during this trip I was only able to find one I wanted to shoot.

All of the images below were taken during the wedding.

I wanted to talk about little more about why I love boats, especially fishing boats.  I talk a lot about my family history in my website bio and I'm currently working on something that I hope to turn into a lifelong project called the "Florida Project".  For many generations my family has made a living fishing the Florida waters.  I love traveling to other places in the US and around the world and seeing people making a living the same way my family has for so long.  While the two boats below aren't meant for fishing but transporting tourist, I couldn't help but love the scene.
