Sea Island, Ga…. sometime in the late 80’s. My wife and I were spending a long weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary when I spotted this bird sitting on the dock piling. Those were film days, long before digital. You had to compose, run some calculations through your head, set the camera and…. wait until the film is processed and proofed to know if you got your shot. I was able to fire off 3 frames before the bird took offense at me being there, this was the middle image.
A few months back we went to the beach…. saw this out in the parking lot So perfect for the day.
As the snowstorm approaches your mind drifts back to olden days, a long long time ago to a warm day on a faraway beach….
Sunset over the water, warm evening air, smell of a bar-b-que, sounds… friends talking, kids playing in the distance, oil stains on the wood of this old chair, if it could only talk.
Sunset at the beach. A dragon in for landing, settling in for the night.
The weather is cold here at home, snow showers and windy. I’m not getting much done, daydreaming about somewhere the sun is shining and the weather is warm.
Saw this guy hanging out last year on a misty morning at the ocean. Suppose he was looking for breakfast, I was looking for a quiet moment.
