What an original post, Kath. The pink outfit of the child reflects beautifully in the wet sand. It looks pretty cold from the child's cloths speaking, it looks like they would go skiing - haha. Sand and beach is so much a global family fun. Don't we all have such memories in our photo boxes. Glad to see a new post from you. How was the "truck" driving?
feather (2018/06/04 15:02:47): I did OK driving the motorhome, but am still paranoid about the sat nav taking me down narrow lanes and through busy city centres. I try to pre-plan using the atlas and google maps but with the state of Rob's eyesight he can't map read for me as I drive like I did for him. I've done 3 trips so far.
Welcome back. I was gone for sometime myself and was busy being back to work and all...This take me back to some wonderful time we had at the beaches of Florida, though we didn't have to wear so many layers as the people in here :) Makes it even better with the warm sun on your skin...too warm almost. I like the tight crop but still show the whole of the little girl....
Quite the interesting focus here at the kid being led by the adult to the shore. The exclusion of the adult (at least the upper body parts) is a very interesting technique to draw much more the attention to the experiences that this kid must be going through. Maybe even a first time seeing the sea?
she (pink should be for girls?) is discovering the sand beach and the tide with her father (or mother?)
Reading the comment, I see you have your family problems. I do have some with my wife having the Alzheimer disease, and my left eye seeming to get the AMD.....
feather (2018/06/08 10:48:39): Sorry to hear about your wife. It's a very distressing illness. Also with your eyesight. Rob's eye problem is very similar to AMD and he's been having the injections into his eyeball. He's also taking a food supplement called Macushield, which you might want to look into. He stopped driving back in October, so it's all down to me now.
I good choice for the TOM, Larry was always fascinated with wet sand reflections. Your tight crop is very effective, it keeps the focus on the child's fascination with the water and the safety of Dad's hand.
