Jamaica | Personal Files

Things have been hectic lately, so I apologize for my absence from the blog for the last week.  As many of you know we just moved from Astoria back to the Upper West Side- yay!  But more about that later.   I thought that  in my current state of chaos (I’m currently sitting on a couch with Alex’s ancient laptop amidst piles of boxes) , it might benefit me to harken back to a simpler time…to two weeks ago by the beach in Jamaica, where  my only cares were preventing sunburn (didn’t work) and wondering what was going to happen to Dagny Taggart in Atlas Shrugged (she dies).  Just kidding she doesn’t! Well, I haven’t finished it the 1000+ page monster of a book yet, so actually maybe she does… ;-)

All hail the Jamaica beer- Red Stripe!  We were at an all-inclusive resort, so we did have quite a few of these…

 You better believe my honey that can eat like a sumo wrestler took full advantage of the fact that it was an all inclusive resort…Alex: “Should I have the steak or lobster? Given that it’s all included I’m gonna say both…”

Let’s be honest, I went on this vacation with the sole purpose of doing nothing, so I didn’t want to take a ton of pictures.  But I did take Alex out one evening at “Golden Hour” (the half hour before and after sunset…aka the best light), taught him how to shoot in manual and a little bit about posing, and then I took a few photos myself…

Go Alex!  He posed this (almost) by himself.  Don’t tell him I said that…

And you may have noticed there are really no photos of me on here, and that’s because I’m usually the photographer.  But Alex took this one on our last day

Alex – proud of himself for shooting in manual and for “finding the good light”. :)

All images taken of Caroline (not of Alex or scenery) are copyright General Alexander T. Shea.  Yes, he made me say that.  No, he’s not a general.

These made me smile! You and Alex are so adorable (he’s too funny…that last one is the best!) and it looked like you had a great time together! Much needed and deserved! Thanks for sharing!
