Hanging In There

I missed a few days because we got hit by a snowstorm that knocked out our power, and thus our internet. No fear, though. Power outages don't effect camera capabilities. :)

Surface of the Moon

Well, not really. Those waves in the distance give it away as earthbound, but still - doesn't that sand look other-worldly?

The Quiet That's Not

There's no suburban noise out here. No traffic and honking cars. No airplanes overhead, machinery chugging and whirring and screeching in the near distance. The people are spread apart, their voices lost in the vastness of the beach. But there are gulls and roaring waves and howling wind. And in that, there is peace.

A Boy and his Dog

When I went out to shoot the sunset tonight, there was a little boy, maybe six years old, playing in the frigid Pacific waters with his yellow lab. The joy was so contagious, I must have taken 50 pictures of them.

Morning Yoga

I woke to snow on the beach this morning. Who sees this thing outside of Alaska? Snow... on the beach. It seemed an oxy-moron. I dashed out in the early morning light to capture it before it melted, and there was this man, doing his morning exercise. I loved his contrast against the white.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

I'm in Oregon, in a hotel right on the beach, and it's rained since I got here. All day I watched the drops drizzle down the windows, the fog so low the mountains and water were not much more than a suggestion of what might be. And then - ten minutes before sunset - the clouds suddenly broke and the brilliant light turned the entirely gray day into a blaze of orange and cobalt blue. So gorgeous!

A Double Whammy

The ice skating pavilion where we took the kids last week. Idyllic setting in Old Town Manassas, made us feel not so in the middle of traffic and asphalt.
