Autumn on Martha’s Vineyard

Ahh fall in New England. The very idea conjures lots of familiar images. Pumpkins. Apples. Changing leaves. Wood-covered bridges. Yes, the nostalgia it evokes has been so carefully curated in pop culture by editors and photographers alike—and reproduced countless times on Hollywood backlots—that it’s difficult to differentiate reality from fiction. That’s why we’ve sent @howieguja (and camera) to take in the sights of the season on Martha’s Vineyard, a picturesque island off the coast of Cape Cod. He captures the essence of autumn with his lens and gives an authentic glimpse into what the off-season looks like for locals.

A quiet back country road on Chappaquiddick Island.

 

The Island’s oldest surviving residence, the Vincent House, was built in 1672.

 

A pumpkin lineup at Morning Glory Farm—a favorite for Guja and family.

 

Each morning on the island starts with a walk (and family photo op) at Edgartown Harbor Light.

 

Fly fishing off Edgartown Light Point is a popular past time, with anglers lining up in the steep drop just off the beach.

 

Perfect fall weekend. Perfect fall look. Check.
