Constant Motion

constant motionI realize this is not a “nature photo” per se, but it certainly speaks to the pure joy and exhilaration children have when hunting for shells on our beautiful beach.

Good friends of our’s came down from Oklahoma for the weekend with their children.  We took them to visit Shell Island where I did a serious of action shots featuring these two bundles of energy.  The north wind had knocked the waves down on the Gulf side of Shell Island giving us an extremely calm day to frolic in the surf.

Not much is more fun as a photographer than watching a two and three year old hunting for shells.  These two were literally in constant motion running back and forth to their Mom with each new shell find.  Little did it matter to them wither the shells were broken or in perfect condition… it was a true treasure in either case.

We could all learn something from these two.  This beach is a treasure that we locals all too often take for granted.  Visit my blog to see more of these photos.
