I love taking pictures almost as much as I love to write. I usually find inspiration at the beach, it just takes you to a different place.
The moment I get there, I find myself letting out a huge sigh. Just releasing all the cares & worries that have filled my day.
What is it about the beach?
I live literally 5 minutes away & I never seem to get down there as much as I'd like to.

Preparing For Flight
I wanted to submit some pictures to sell on a Photo site, but then I would have to Photoshop them to death.
It seems as though all pictures nowadays are fixed, enhanced, and changed to portray some kind of perfection.
I like my raw, un-retouched photos. It's what I saw at that moment. It's what I was hoping to share with others...bringing them to that exact time that took my breath away.
