Daisy Towards the Sun

One of my earlier shots, this one isn’t the most expertly-composed, but the feeling I got after opening it up in Photoshop and physically feeling the warmth that they image conveyed, it quickly became one of my favorites.

Playing in the Sand

While shooting a few informal portrait/beach photos for a friend, I noticed the daughter of another friend was enjoying playing in the sand, unaware of anything else going on around her.

I didn’t even have time to compose on this shot; I wanted it to be at her level, so I had to focus first and then hold the camera low and level; I love the purity and carefree spirit is seems to show.


This shot was taken a few years ago, during a sunset on Lido Beach in Sarasota.  I’m not sure what the four friends were talking about, or laughing about, but I know they all repeatedly turned their attention to the rays of sunlight streaming through the darkening clouds on the horizon.
