The world as I see it — by R C Norman


Water’s Edge

Water's Edge

My 13 year-old son made this image one evening along the shore of Broad Creek where we spend summers on our boat Sea Horse. I was amazed at the abstract quality he saw in the evening sun’s reflection off the water and wet sand. The contrast of shadow and gold light make this an unusual and striking photo.

  1. Children often have a very fresh way of looking at things. Your son is clearly developing a fine photogrpaher’s eye.

    • Thanks. I was reluctant to let him walk down the dock with my new Nikon D7000, but now I’m so glad I did!

      • Thanks again. I will be sure to let him know. I’m curious where you saw it. I’m still learning about WordPress and how our posts are publicized.
