One of my favorite escapes from the daily grind and writing is to go to the beach. I love to walk, take my dogs for a run on the beach, and I bring my camera for good measure because you never know what you’re going to see. I find that some of the most beautiful subjects are often emphasized in black and white.
This particular day it was really windy, I mean really windy. I saw a nice shot up a beach path and I had to make sure that I kept my mouth closed and breathed shallow; otherwise, I’d be tasting sand for the rest of the day.
Here’s a curious seagull that wouldn’t leave me alone. I was trying to get some shots of sea lions around the harbor. I guess this little guy wasn’t camera shy.
This is one of my favorite beach shots. The lighting this particular day was outstanding. I love the contrast in this photo. This is a stretch of beach I often walk with my dogs.
Enjoy your weekend!
The old black & white movies were more enjoyable, also. Like listening to a mystery story on the radio, black & white gave your imagination a chance to create.
