we were kinda bummed this past summer vacation that there weren’t many brilliant beach days. instead, it was often gray and cool. i knew then, at the very least, it was good weather for interesting photos.
the business of life got in the way of me editing these images at the time. instead, i decided to revisit these files today. one thing i notice is that, perhaps the weather wasn’t so dismal. these images showcase that children seem to find the intrigue and beauty that life holds on a day-to-day, moment-to-moment basis. we adults just get jaded over time.
i often worry that i spend too much time behind my lens and editing – and that i am not being “present” enough. but i find that taking photos helps me see like a child, and editing helps me reflect and build understanding of this world and life. i am thankful for the opportunity i have been given to pursue this passion for so many years.
