After church today, I went for a walk on the beach because I wanted to stay in town for a folk music concert in the afternoon (which was really fun, but not the point of this post).
I went with the idea to try to find some pictures that are a little different from the usual beach scenes. Not that they are bad, but those of us who live near Lake Michigan get overdosed with sun and sand and waves.
I came home with way too many pictures! But I narrowed it down to 10 that seemed interesting. I'll show you half today and half tomorrow. I really like things that look like something else (as you may have figured out!). This sandy "cliff" is only about two feet high. But it reminds me of desert dwellings or a setting for a fantasy game, or... you tell me...
This is the very edge of a wave as the last of its energy is being dissipated. Just a few bubbles left. Have you noticed that you can click to make the pictures larger? I'm finally getting my photo pages set up pretty much the way I want them. Most of these pictures look better when they are bigger.
It was hard to believe that it is November. I went looking for a solitary experience, but there were several groups of people enjoying the "warm" weather. It was great, but after 30 minutes I was pretty frozen.
One lone leaf just out of reach of the last wave...
I ate my sandwich and apple, and retreated to the car and half a mug of still-warm coffee. Then I headed for the library to wait for the concert to start. Ended up checking out the complete works of e. e. cummings. I can't remember the name, or a full line, of a poem that I'm sure he wrote, so I'm searching by brute force.
Five more tomorrow!
