I had taken several shots of this boat earlier when the lighting was pretty dull. Now the colors were wonderful and I really wanted to get back down to the waters edge to shoot it again. But unfortunately for me the fisherman put up a chain with a 'private propertry' sign on it, so my access was blocked.
By this time Ricia had found me again, and I told her how I wanted to photograph that boat now that the lighting was good but couldn't. Ricia possesses a more aggressive personality than me by nature, so unlike me wouldn't let the opportunity go so easily and kept prodding me to go down there anyway until I finally relented.
As lighting this time of day changes literally by the second, by the time she convinced me to move the chain and go down there anyway, most of the rich lighting had gone, but enough of it remained to still be a far superior shot to any of the other ones I had taken just 10 minutes earlier. So without her this best shot of the boat would not have happened. Which is fitting for without her this trip to Rhode Island wouldn't have happened. Good friend, good company, good person to share times like this with.
