In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”
Yesterday I had a sudden desire to visit the sea. After all, I think it’s been one whole month since the last time I’ve been to one. And that’s too long in my books! So I packed and shot to the one beach that I rarely ever visit, the iconic Marina. It’s a humongous beach that seems to stretch as far as your eyes can see on both sides but the reason I’m not so fond of it is actually two-fold. One, it’s so wide that is takes at least twenty minutes to walk to the shore from where you get off. And two, crazy crowds!! If peace and mental reflection is what you’re looking for, then this is definitely not the place you want to go.
But these are the exact places that provide the best opportunities for some candid photography and I returned home with lots of photos of people and absolutely zero photos of the sea. This one below, I immediately liked because I realized I’ve never actually shot a crow before. 🙂 Just the way it stood atop the fishing boat, scanning the sand for scraps of food, I thought it was fascinating.
In terms of the theme Half-and-half. I think this photo captures two worlds nicely.
The liveliness of the beach, and the wonder that is the Sky.
