Black and White Wednesday - Toes in the Sand

Black & White Wednesday is run by Lisa over @ The Long Road to China. I love this idea and I am definitely going to be doing it every week.

To emphasize my earlier point about my enjoyment for bare feet, that's what I decided to focus on for this week's photo. I really love how how this came out. Editing in pse is a breeze, I discovered; it was much easier than I expected, and tons of fun, too.

This was taken in LI, on the beach of course, at a family picnic. A deep love for the beach was given to me by my father. He grew up in East Rockaway, and spent most of his childhood at the beach. I would give anything to live within walking distance of the ocean. I can spend hours just sitting in the sand, staring at the waves and the endless horizon.

Yeah, I'm with you on spending hours at the beach. I was born by the ocean so I feel most at home there.

Love the downward capture here. It's great!

I love the feet! Great shot and perfect in B&W. Makes all the beach shells & stuff really stand out.

I love it. Great perspective. Bare foot is the best!

Cute! :-) I uh, go barefoot a little TOO often and therefore um, do not think my feet would make a good subject... *shudder* calluses anyone?
