when he's staring out the window.”

come gladly
once it knew this was you
wanting to take it in?”

wanting your mouth as I did -

Honestly, it was happy to be bitten.”

Happy Thanksgiving to all you USAers. And may the rest of the world be grateful too!

“In all realms of life it takes courage to stretch your limits, express your power, and fulfill your potential”
Suze Orman

At first I couldn’t tell whether this surfer was welcoming the ocean or confronting it. It turns out that he was just loosening up before he played with it. Anyway, I liked his stance as well as how the sea was blending into the foggy sky.

Warning! Text and texture are seeping into my photos. The purity of my art is in jeopardy but I do have a cure. To see the unblemished photo just hover the cursor over the bottom half of the photo.
