I made this image to show where I was standing as I took some of these images. I had never seen the water against this wall so low (and low tide was still nearly an hour away.) i am perched as close to the edge of the wall/path as possible. I have no fear of heights or of falling--I have almost no fears. As a photographer I have always gotten down on my tummy for the right shot or climbed higher, whatever it took to get the picture I imagined. It'd harder now.
Commenting about Miss Shelly (Michelle) and the Bling. Neither Emma nor I are girly girls. I wear no jewelry. Even when it came to wedding rings all I wore was a simple gold band. I have no piercings (no tattoos and I buy shoes for comfort).....I have some jewelry of my own, but all of the strings of beads in the foto were inherited (Mom, grandma, Great Aunt, some old lady....) I look forward to seeing WHO my grand-daughter will become. Every time I hold her I pray that I'll have time for the two of us to make memories.
