The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
- Jacques-Yves Cousteau
So, last summer we got a fancy new camera, thanks to my sister's husband who decided to upgrade. The camera is kind of scary and heavy and, though Nathan pretends like it's my camera, I have really never used it. Until Spring Break 2007.
I took the serious camera with us to the beach. I pretended like I knew what I was doing, and started taking pictures. There's something about this camera that makes people think you are a professional. It was fun! I took almost a hundred pictures of the kids in the water, and of the horizon, and of the rocks, and of a boat, and of a spot in the water that was maybe a whale or maybe not.
I wish I had taken a picture of a very nervous mother in a stiff floral shirt dress straight out of the 50's who spent her entire time at the beach yelling at her kids to come closer and get over here right now or were're going home...
Nathan showed me how to use photoshop, and I've been posting pictures of that day all week. I love these sandy shots. What do you think?
