Devin Sprague, my nephew has been of much intrigue to me lately. Let’s face it, the chance to be in the company of a 16 year old is rare; 20 and up is a different story, but 16 is a pretty amazing age. It’s Devin’s summer break right now, so he is earning some spare cash by helping out his dad who is Master Electrician and besides having other summer fun with his friends he has spent a good chunk of time restoring a recently acquired sailboat.
After acquiring this dream machine, Devin has taken the time to get this beauty oiled and souped up. It’s a treat to see his face light up when some one looks at him and says let’s go sailing! We started with shooting some portraits of him and his boat at his home base. Then we drove this boat up to the wharf in Mattapoisett, MA. and Yes I was in photo heaven. Stay tuned for the images of sailing to follow. But first, here are some portraits.
