I took this photo in the summer of 2010 on a Brooklyn beach (AKA The Borough By The Sea). It is one of my favorite photos ever! My Mom and I spent the entire day on the beach, it was hot and amazing. We took the photo past 7, I believe, the tide had receded considerably, which made it seem that you could just walk into and keep walking forever into the ocean; and the evening had begun to spread out against the sky. The atmosphere was very relaxed and peaceful. I cherish this photo because it puts me right back in that place, in that mood and feeling. I can hear the ocean, the children playing, smell the saltwater and seaweed. Do you enjoy the beach as much as I do? Which beaches are your favorite? Send me your beach photos and I will post them as inspirations (with your credit, of course)!
In my part of the world (New York City) we had a lovely little snowfall that started Friday night and went on through to Saturday evening. If you’ve never seen New York in the winter, you should! It can be extremely beautiful. It is also my brother’s birthday today, so the snow seems extra special. I wanted to share that happiness with everyone and hope it reaches you all.
Please be grateful for the gifts and blessings you have been given in life. It is so very cold out there and we should always remember that “There, but for the grace of God, go I”. Any little bit can help those in need. Even a dollar given to the right charity or donating your old coats and winter clothes to a local house of worship or your preferred charitable organization.
For now, enjoy these two photos, please! From my family to yours! Send me some of your favorite winter shots! Do you have a favorite thing about winter? What is it?
