We Took a Trip...And All I Got Were These Awesome Photos


Here is one of the many great pictures I took on our recent trip to the beach. Upon Christinator's suggestion I converted the image to black and white. I really like the way it looks. It kind of sums up how I feel every year when I take my kids to the beach. It is timeless. When we go to the beach we freeze them at this age for a week and watch them play, run, splash, explore. If I could just put snippets of this boy at three years old in my pocket to take out later, I might never forget how excited he was to get up enough courage to get close to the water. And then I could laugh with him again over how much fun it is to run away from the waves.

Sigh.

There are others taking Trips this summer, you can see their photos at Picture This.


Also, if you want to compare the B&W to the original, unedited, image it's here.

Black and white is timeless isn't it? Beach holidays are the best. Its a whole other lifestyle which is what holidays should be about.
