52 Weeks In Motion

52 week badge

Our assignment for this week is all about motion.

Our kids at the beach, each standing on something, maybe rocks or wood--maybe left from an old pier or dock...

This summer we took a trip to the East Coast.  This photo was taken at Wrightsville Beach near the city of Wilmington North Carolina.  Being from Kansas it's not often that we get a chance to dig our toes in the sand while the surf comes rolling in, then back out.  Oh the water was delightful! A perfect day!




The falling wave,
arch of identity, shattering feathers,
is only spume when it clears, 
and returns to its source, unconsumed.
~a verse from 'The Wide Ocean', a poem by Pablo Neruda

Lovely! i would have loved to show the movement of water, but our little stream is not very exciting movement-wise!

What a great wave photo. I find it hard to capture water in motion and you did a great job. Also a very cute shot of your family with bare feet in sand.

That's a beautiful part of the country.

Great shots. The ocean(water)is one of my most favorite 'in motion' things ever! And your verse from the poem is beautiful.

Beautiful waves - we are quite far from the ocean, but just on the shore of Lake Ontario, which can substitute for a sea any time of the year :) Lovely shot - thanks for sharing!
