Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Fun

This week we are asked to share a little fun.

Children in the Sand

It’s hard to believe that the summer is over, fall is in the air and I’ve already started Christmas shopping.  But for now, I’m going to follow Patti’s request and share some fun.

Most of my summer was spent at the beach under an umbrella enjoying the cool breeze and watching the children play in the sand and surf.  Part of the fun for me is watching the pure joy on their faces as they enjoy the water.  Oh, to be so young again!

I kept my camera out and snapped happily away….

Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Action

So this week we are asked to share some “action” photos – anything on the move.  

Dog Action

Saturday was a beach day for us.  We packed a small cooler, grabbed the towels, chairs and umbrella and headed out to a relatively quiet stretch of beach.  That’s where my “action” ended for the day – well, at least the next few hours.  

Bike Action

Occasionally, I would lift my head up to check out the clouds and the kids playing around us. 

Floating Action

And  I managed a few shots of this osprey in action…

but unfortunately, both the osprey and I missed the perfect capture.

Wave Action

And the last shot of the day….

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge – Cooling

Our prompt this week from Ann-Christine is “cooling”.  And since it was a beautiful beach weekend all we needed to keep cool was an umbrella and a chair.

I decided to play along with Cee’s challenge today.  My daughter and her family visited last week and we took my 5 month old grandson for his first steps on the beach.

Photo Challenge – Cherry on Top

This week, we are asked to show the detail that makes a good experience a truly great experience – to celebrate the cherries on top.
