For this week’s photo challenge: Silhouette, I chose this photo I took on vacation. We were hanging out on the beach, my kids playing in the sand, people coming and going. I noticed two teenaged girls that came on the beach. I think they had come from soccer, wearing knee high socks, shoes and shorts. One girl just marched right up to the swings, where I had been sitting and just sat down and started swinging like there was no tomorrow. She was fearless and went very high! Her long curly hair flying all around. I took a couple shots since it was such a great sight. She did some serious swinging and was very serious about it. No laughing, “look at me” crap. Just all out hard and high swinging.
Sorry for the absence. I went out of town (Beaver Island, MI) and then have been either playing or playing catchup since I have been back. All 3 of those things, have been going well. But, my poor little blog has been neglected. I owe it 3 photo challenges (and more!), and Containers is the first. I am using this photo for Containers because it used to be part of someone’s body, the container for them. I am not really sure what it was. A fish, I suppose. As it lays there, decomposing and twisted, it is hard to tell. It is quite small. The pebbles are the size of a quarter at the large end. I was looking for rocks to bring home and ran into all different kinds of things. Crayfish being eaten by ants was by far the popular life transformation occurring upon the beach. But I liked this one too. This from the beach of our vacation home (that we rented) on Beaver Island, a very magical place.
The seagulls are so fun to watch as the fly erratically through the air biting at the mayflies.
I took this photo on the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey, several years ago. I did enhance the sign a bit so it was more readable. People don’t drive on the beach there, so I am not sure who they don’t want to exceed 5 mph. Perhaps the trash cart? Seagulls? Crabs? Me, carrying tons of stuff, burning my feet on the sand? I am pretty sure though, I would want the life guard to haul ass if I was drowning. Gotta love the random sign.
