Place in the World


Huntington Beach, CA. Fujifilm XT2. Snapseed.

Seldom do I go to the beach these days. Here, though, I was meeting some of my friends who were attending a volleyball beach tournament and so I found myself near the ocean once again.


I was delighted, no, mesmerized, at how the white surfs were breaking the deep blueness of the ocean and I only intended to capture that with the pier as the background. Looking through the viewfinder, I waited a bit for the perfect interplay of white and blue. When the moment finally came, the kids appeared. They made for an interesting composition. Serendipitous!


Clearly, at the moment at least, they have found their place in the world. As wonderful and invigorating as the litoral life may be, I seek a much different place.
