i was in a "meh, been there photographed that" sort of mood the day i took the boys to the beach on our most recent florida trip. i almost didn't take my camera out of the bag. we had gone to windmark which is a more natural rustic area as far as north florida beaches go. we chose that spot as i guessed there would be less tourists and i was right. we practically had the place to ourselves until noon when we were leaving anyway.
so, as i was sitting there contemplating life, i thought i should at least take a picture of the wooded area to show the different beach topography.
i figured i might as well snap a few photos of the puffy clouds while i was sitting there with camera in hand. puffy clouds make for happy pictures, after all.
then i happened to remember that i wanted to photograph the morning glories. they were indeed glorious.
looking down i noticed the shadows playing on the sand beneath the foliage.
and the silver dollar weed reminded me of my childhood.
i tried photographing a ghost crab, but he was feeling quite shy.
