So yesterday afternoon I was feeling a bit cooped up, it was raining and I hadn’t been outside for a walk for a few days. I can’t remember the last time I picked up my camera (post summer blues) so I decided that I would take the dog for a walk on the beach.
It was raining, which meant I could let her off the leash and not have to worry about anyone else being there to scare her. So off we went.
This is what I originally had planned on photographing. Maybe spending a few minutes perfecting a shot like this.
The rain, the birds, the low tide -I had some ideas I was planning to perfect…but then something caught my eye.
Now that in and of itself isn’t that unusual. There are people out surfing on occasion, but this person didn’t appear to be surfing…in fact, I couldn’t be sure what they were doing.
I watched a few more minutes…
…and then this happened…
I couldn’t be sure if I was seeing things, but from what I could tell this person was doing handstands…on a surfboard…in the ocean…in the rain.
I am still not sure what, exactly, was going on -but it was sure impressive, especially considering I slipped about four times this weekend. On solid ground.
