Today was a day of play. Even though, my beach theme is over, I was drawn down to the pier this morning.
It’s official! I am themeless! So, here is my random shot for the day. Randomness… Perhaps, that will be my theme for the week!
I think I need to make a habit out of morning beach walks!
Amazing… I made it to the beach in the morning! I was determined to get daylight shots, and forced myself out of the house! I saw this VW bus parked by the beach a couple nights ago. It was so dark, that I couldn’t get a decent shot. I couldn’t believe I stumbled upon it again. Maybe, I need to get up earlier more often!
Another night at the beach… What can I say? I’m addicted to it!
I went to Leadbetter Beach just a little bit after sunset. I missed the light I wanted, and what was left was fading fast. I found a couple walking the beach, grabbed a couple of shots, and hoped for the best! I decided to stop shooting, and just enjoy the night. I soon found myself mesmerized by the seductive power of the ocean. It was as if I was watching it breathe!
I actually got to the beach during the afternoon to shoot. Most of my time on this project has been at night, so it was a nice change. I wanted to play around with low angles, and happened to come across a pair of vans sitting in the sand. As I was shooting, the owner of the shoes soon appeared looking a bit perplexed! I guess I must have looked a bit strange taking pictures of his shoes! I told him about my project, and ended up getting to hear about some of his great adventures! Maybe I need to shoot more shoes!
I managed to get down to the beach today for a spectacular sunset! I’ve lived in Santa Barbara for a little over a year now, and haven’t been down there for too many of them. I must say, I would like to make it more of a habit. It was magical!
When I woke up this morning, I realized I had to start a new theme today. I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to take things this week, and was hoping for inspiration to strike at some point of the day. By the end of the day, all I wanted to do was go home and sleep. I photographed several families today, and really just wanted to put the camera away!
On my drive home, I found myself chasing the moon again. It was hanging low in the sky, and glowing a beautiful orange. I headed down to the ocean, and decided to make “The Beach” this week’s theme.
