Celebrating Summer!

The first official week of summer has begun.

To celebrate the commencement of the season, I would like to focus on one of the biggest playgrounds of summer.

The Beach.

No other place represents the lazy hazy days of summer like sand and surf.

Millions of sun worshipers will flock to beaches all over the world to spend their holidays.
Swimming, surfing, lounging, playing, or just sunning – the possibilities are endless.

I’ve decided not to represent the vibrant colors often seen at the beach, but to focus on the sights and scenes.
By representing the images in a “colorless” way, a certain ‘timelessness’ presents itself.

Aging the image also signifies the iconic tradition of the beach vacation.
This could almost be any beach in the world - any place or time.

"I could never stay long enough on the shore; the tang of the untainted, fresh and free sea air was like a cool, quieting thought." - Helen Keller
