I live in southern California and love the artistic expression of photography. Photography always surprises. I seldom come home with the picture I set out to take. While the ocean is roaring nearby suddenly a small rock beckons. So while the orignial intent may have been a landscape, suddenly I’m captivated by a macro shot of a seashell, a rock, or patterns in the sand. You can never have ‘seen it all’ in photography. Every time out is new, interesting, and full of surprises.
