Say that 3 times fast…

It’s been a day at the beach. Walk down a beach with a camera and eventually you end up taking photos of sea shells. At least I do at Edisto Beach. D20 1241 Shooting Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

And, I guess it says something about me that what I do when I go on vacation is take photos. Photography isn’t work for me…it’s play. I have to be careful or I’ll forget to eat. Just ask some of the models who have gone on all day shoots in the wilderness with me. “What, you are hungry? Why? We aren’t done shooting yet…”

Why shoot sea shell photos? Why not? Has it been done before? Sure. Are my photos better than what others have done…well, maybe better than some, but certainly not the best.

But, I’m not really worried about why. These are my photos. It’s what I saw and chose to include in photos. So it’s my vision. Certainly influenced by other photos. Also influenced by my ideas about beauty and the place of humans as an integral part of the natural world. D20 1197 Shooting Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

And, yes, when I was shooting the photos of water and foam I was thinking about the photos of water that I saw the last time I was at MOMA. Mostly I was thinking how much better those water photos in MOMA are than the ones I was shooting. So it goes.

Anyway, I’m having fun on vacation. It’s warm here…well, around here they think mid-60s is cold, but people from Ohio know better.
