A few weeks back, I tagged along with NZ as he went searching for surfable waves. I played with my camera and love these two shots. Someone recently asked me how I get the "effects" on my photos, and I have to credit Picnik for their free photo editing website. My favorite effects are "vignette" which makes the black around the edges, and "cross process" which ages the photos a bit.
No fancy camera required, just my CanonPowerShot SD880 IS which easily fits into a pocket or a purse for those Kodak moments. I think next Christmas, I will ask Santa for a "real" camera, particularly a Canon Rebel EOS model...or start saving my money to buy it myself, which may come sooner than Santa. Either way, taking pictures at the beach always puts a smile on my face. We live in paradise, and I feel so fortunate and grateful to call Southern California my home.
