All Boy

Forgive me for being stereotypical, but there they were, practically beside each other, lost in the moment in such different ways. Right before me, the yin and yang, feminine and masculine, was being expressed without reservation or inhibition. I had to see if I could capture and share this little boy's unabashed delight. I loved his band-aid and his red curls. He was an inspiration to embrace life with abandon and joy.

Surf's Up

Together, these two little friends were taking on the ocean. I noticed they waited and flung themselves into only the largest waves. And with wild squeals of glee and laughter they did it again and again and again. Somehow it would not have been the same if they had not had each other to revel in the shared experiences the ocean had to offer. We all need a real friend or two, don't we? Enjoy the Journey.

 

Amazed By The Sea

I had first considered depicting this little girl as a tiny figure standing at the edge of a vast ocean to show perspective and symbolize how small we are in the whole of creation. But the more I pondered and reflected, I kept cropping my original reference photo and zooming in closer and closer. The horizontal format became vertical and a different message emerged: the little girl's enraptured gaze into a living, breathing creation, swirling at her feet. To be this engaged, this connected, this vulnerable with the Creator, is to be alive.
