It’s funny.
I rarely shoot black and white seascapes, and virtually never centre things.
But there you have it.
Feels right to me.
Right where my head felt best.
I hope you enjoy it :)

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    Monotone Mentone works for me Mel. Nothing wrong with a bit of variety and “never do this” in your portfolio!

  • And alliteration always adds another angle. :) Cheers Garth!

    love it and it works. Especially the silky white water line lapping the shore and the ripples leading to the pier.

  • You’re the man! That’s what I was hoping people would notice. 5 stars and I’ll throw in an elephant stamp as well :)
