The cameras on our phones are perfect for grabbing “quick-like” images – and sometimes these “split-second photos” not only grab the action, but they capture an entire mood and feeling of what was going on at that time.
I love this image because it shows my son in action (burning his daily 5,000 calories) and because he only started riding a skateboard a couple of years ago – it has been fun to watch him advance with moves and tricks.
Now – the “other story” behind this image has to do with how we ended up at this spot last summer (and some of you have seen other photos from this evening in a different post- here).
We stopped in Portsmouth, Virginia so that my step-daughter could visit her friend. It was my step-daughter’s first visit in many years and so every day of her trip was special just because we missed her so much!
This little stop was at the end of a l o n g day at the beach. We were stuffed with pizza and greek salad and we all had that salty, sun-drained feeling (which I actually love). The friend’s condo was right off the highway, so that was nice, but even if it wasn’t – we would have driven as far as needed!
We had to kill some time while they visited upstairs and thankfully we had a beautiful harbor view to soak up. The ferry horns went off at intervals while my son skated and the rest of us just chatted it up. I grabbed a few phone photos as well – and I am so glad I did!
