scenes from the sea, summer 2009

as a reclusive people-person,
i cannot not crawl out of my hiding place
and hang out and about on the nearby beach
that is almost all mine year-round
except for a short while in mid summer

summer is short here in
north end of the central-east japan

people are out
letting it almost all hang out
and i am hanging with my camera
shooting it away in shore break

look
with a jumbo drop on a lens cover



considerable mass of jello
about to swallow beach-side homes



caught him in the
pure expression of terror



guy on the right is doing alright
while the left's about to get
knocked over...



well, look who's gotten knocked over
a moment after the click



safe in daddy's arms-
a day to remember



this is as crowded as it gets
snapping while on a boogie board



associating with the clean, crisp water here
made me a lover of the color teal...



that's all for this summer
thanks for viewing!
