Travel Photo Contest – Douglas Larsen
This summer my five-year-old son had his first chance to play on the beach on our trip to southern California (Corona del Mar beach in this picture). The photograph captures the magic of being chased by the waves. Please view the larger image to appreciate the motion and texture. I love how he is about to “take flight” as the water nips the toes of his right foot. The expression on his face shows the joy of the moment. Processing the image in black and white focuses the eye on the form of the subject and brings out the textures of the water.
